Sorry! There are no remaining departures for "South Africa Volunteer and Overland Adventure" (DAPS), but here are some similar trips.
For the 2013 year, we've adjusted the itinerary of this tour, removing a day in Botswana in favour of another day in South Africa, helping to split up some long travel days.
Volunteering for community projects, feeling small while contemplating Victoria Falls and giant sand dunes, finding the Big Five in Etosha, meeting the San Bushmen at the Kalahari's edge, cruising the Chobe River at sunset.
Experience the colour and culture of southern Africa on this unique 28-day volunteer adventure. Soak in the spirit of Cape Town before exploring desert landscapes on your way to the mists of majestic Victoria Falls. Embark on game drives across national parks and explore the Okavango Delta in dug-out mokoro canoe. Gain a unique perspective on local culture while volunteering with community projects that help bring education to the Cape Peninsula. Give a little of your time to Africa and take away a truly immersive experience that few travellers encounter.
