Tour Details

Feast your eyes on the legendary scenic wonders and lose yourself in the wildlife extravagance of South Africa. And if the traveler in you hungers for diversity, Cape Town will surely lift your spirit! With its strong heritage and vibrant Capetonian culture, you’re in for a travel treat! On the top of that, this coastal city also has some of the best-hidden beaches in the world, all lying in wait for you to live it up on their shores.

Explore the townships of Khayelitsha and Philippi as a volunteer and help uplift the community through education and development work. Educational resources are also almost absent for the disadvantaged kids and the issue is lost amongst many parallels like unemployment, poverty, and HIV. If this gets your blood boiling, then this project is the perfect opportunity to make a difference. Empower children with education and physical recourse and help them build a bright future for themselves.
