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.
Choose your projects – Depending on the project you will have the option to visit a project for a few hours (tourist option), join a project for a few days (experience option) or make a difference on a project for 1 to 4+ weeks (volunteer option).
Search our listed destinations and design your perfect self-drive roadtrip: Our partners, which include projects, hospitality establishments and local businesses, are our collaborators across Southern Africa - allowing you to connect with as much of a town or community as possible. Let us help you design the perfect adventure for you in your own vehicle or join one of our tried and tested roadtrips. Start designing your experience here.
Get learning and volunteering: With a growing number of online opportunities, virtual volunteering and e-learning courses to choose from, there is something for everyone. From the 155 projects we have personally visited, you can choose from our featured projects and join as a virtual volunteer, find out how to join them in-person, or learn via our selection of online courses.
