Roadtrips & Externships

Our roadtrips are not only about destinations, you have the option to volunteer on hand-picked conservation and community projects enroute.

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, breakfast and dinners at partner restaurants. This collaboration combines South Africa at its best and most inspiring!
