We believe in collaboration in the form of a connected community sharing successes and failures. We believe in transparency in who we work with and our place in this collaboration.

We believe that as a social enterprise we are unique in our community partnerships and project spending.
Our expeditions have a responsible travel ethos and include charity donations and several forms of community support, carbon offset via tree plantings, and local business partnerships. Where your money goes is very important to us!

You can choose to go direct to any of our partnering projects, the cost is the same and the end result for those projects will be the same. However, by joining The EXPEDITION Project you join a collaborative network that focuses on building collaboration, transparency, and responsible travel.

Our road trips are not only about destinations, you have the option to volunteer on hand-picked conservation and community projects en route.

If you would like to design your very own self-drive expedition then below you will see some of our primary projects and partners to get you started. Search any of our listings and then add them to your favourites. Add as many projects and partners as you like to your very own map and have fun planning an inspiring trip!

If you would like us to help you get started then just fill out the form at the bottom of the page and we will get back to you ASAP.

Highlights include: volunteering experiences at several community and conservation projects, selected tourism activities and national parks, a combination of b&b and tented camp accommodation, and breakfast, and dinners at partner restaurants. This collaboration combines South Africa at its best and most inspiring!
