Driving Change

The EXPEDITION Project connects inspiring, sustainable projects and individuals with each other and with the resources they need, and it shares their stories with the world.

Since 2012 we have travelled 36535km (22701miles), visited 353 towns & 155 projects, with the help of 405 hospitality partners, to meet and understand the challenges communities face. We then connect projects, communities, ideas and individuals with each other, share their successes and help take them one step further with contacts, expertise and funding.

​Do you want to give-back to the planet and the people leaving a lasting impact on projects that are making a difference in conservation & community upliftment? ​Do you want your consumer choices to be counted? ​Do you want to see wildlife, national parks, and beautiful scenery…making memories that might last a lifetime?
