Excursions in the area

Though not part of the programme at the projects, the excursions in the area are not to be missed! Many excursions allow you to experience the bush and wildlife in surrounding Nature Reserves. Encounter wildlife on foot or while doing a horse safari, fly over the bush in a micro light or in a hot air balloon. And then we have the trips by boat. Truly an awesome experience! The choice is yours!  

  • You can visit breeding projects and wildlife sanctuaries working with (endangered) wildlife species. Join a tour and learn heaps about South Africa's flora and fauna and the conservation thereof
  • Kruger National Park is one of Africa's most well known National Parks. You'll enjoy the abundance of wildlife and the amazing scenery!
  • At the Tribal Village you'll get a good impression of tribal life as it used to be, you're served a traditional meal and there will be a performance of authentic singing and dancing around a campfire under the African sky
  • Summer brings rain, and this is a good time to do some white water rafting through the Canyon. The river offers some serious challenges for rafters. Some parts of the river are quiet and peaceful, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful surroundings while listening to the Fish Eagle's call... impressive!
  • Lets not forget the Panorama Route! The views of this third biggest Canyon in the world are absolutely breathtaking and will give you the feeling of being 'on top of the world'! Ravines, waterfalls, and forests with indigenous ferns, aloes and clivia's 

Not enough adrenaline for you? There's The Big Swing (bungee jump) into the ravine;-)


All projects organize an evening out every now and then to have a meal at a local restaurant or a bush pub. Meet some locals or watch Rugby together! 


NB: The excursions are not part of the programme at the projects. Entrance fees and transfer costs to and from the excursions are at your own expence. You can do these extra activities in your free time (mostly weekends). Project staff will be happy to help you with this.
