Overview

This tour has been developed for clients who want to do volunteer work in the Garden Route but want to see what is on offer before making a final commitment.  You will visit 5 well established volunteer destinations and take part in fun activities along the way!

 

Ask yourself;

  1. Want to do volunteer work in Africa
  2. Want to do it in a safe and secure environment?
  3. Want to know what to expect before making that final commitment?
  4. Want to have a hands-on experience to help you make an informed choice.
  5. Want to tour one of South Africa’s top 3 and most popular destinations?

If you answered YES to all the questions above, then this tour is for you

Experience the beautiful Garden Route in 4 days and visit 5 popular Volunteer Organisations before making your choice.  You will travel from the capital city, George, to the historic Mossel Bay, over the majestic Outeniqua Mountains to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo and then back to the coast to visit the indigenous forests of Tsitsikamma.  All of this while exploring the premium volunteer possibilities the Garden Route has to offer.

Starting in Mossel Bay, your first port of call will be a Marine Volunteer organisation that specialises in working with Great White Sharks.  This is followed by a short tour of the historic town of Mossel Bay (and a delicious seafood lunch). Thereafter you will head to a Volunteer Organisation focussing on African Animals.  After this, you will cross the scenic Robinson Pass to a 4 star Game Lodge in Oudtshoorn.

In Oudtshoorn you will visit the world-renowned Cango Caves and learn all about the largest flightless bird at an ostrich farm. Get your hands dirty when you assist with the afternoon volunteer session at the game park.

On the way to Tsitsikamma you will travel along the scenic beach resort towns of Wilderness, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. In Knysna, you will stop at the cosmopolitan Knysna Waterfront for curio shopping and lunch.  After this, you will head to an Ocean Research Volunteer Organisation in Plettenberg Bay where you will be taken on a tour of experience what this destination has to offer.  On arrival at the Coastal Reserve with views of the ocean, forests and mountains, you will settle in for a one night stay in one of the chalets or a luxury tent.

On the final day of the tour, you will participate in a forest, zip-lining session through the treetops and quad biking along a forest track.  Visit Face Adrenaline to view the highest bridge bungee in the world before visiting the final Volunteer Organisation that focuses on Community work before heading back to George.
