Your own African adventure


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.

We have been DRIVING CHANGE 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.

Our roadtrips – Our approach means we are a sustainable, partnership driven social enterprise providing a combination of multi-project volunteering and multi-destination travel.

​These roadtrips cater for researchers, academics, journalists, gap year students, sabbaticals & career breaks, or simple explorers wishing to have a more meaningful holiday.
