After you have finished your volunteer project*, join us on this whirlwind tour of South Africa’s stunning coastal regions, from Western to Eastern Cape. Guided by an experienced African tour leader, explore world famous paths across this stunning nation. You will have the chance to follow the Whale Route, Route 62, the Karoo and Garden Route, all the way through to Jeffrey’s Bay, Mandela Bay and Port Elizabeth. Along the way, your time will be filled with once-in-a-lifetime experiences and discoveries from sightings of the Big 5 on a game drive through a National Game Park, sampling some of South Africa’s best brews in a beer tasting, kicking back in natural hot springs, taking in the view on horseback and elephant rides, river canoeing and ski-boat cruising. As if that wasn’t enough adventure, you’ll also have the opportunity to get involved in caving, zip lining and bungee jumping!
