Destination info

Southern Africa – huge, varied and exciting. On this trip you’ll be getting to know three of the countries in this region.

 

This is the start of your adventure in South Africa. Diverse, exhilarating, spectacular, varied – it’s a gap year destination electric with possibility. Never far from the news, it’s a vast, modern multicultural country, full of contradictions and full of interest. It offers so many opportunities for student travel that it’s difficult to summarise.

 

Swaziland is often unfairly overlooked as a gap year destination because it’s so tiny by comparison with its giant neighbours South Africa and Mozambique. But it would be a big mistake to think of Swaziland as second best. It’s quite different in feel from either of its neighbours although, of course, it does share their geography.

  • Location: Ezulwini Valley, Kruger National Park,

Days 1-2

You will fly into O.R Tambo International Airport, Johannesburg before 1:30pm, where you will be met by a member of our in country team and transferred to Swaziland.You will be transferred to a lodge which will be your home for the first couple of days and while you're there you'll have an orientation. The orientation will be a detailed briefing of the itinerary by your expedition leader, giving you the chance to meet your fellow travellers and ask any questions you may have.

 

Day 3-7
Your tour starts in one of the most famous conservation areas in Africa – Kruger National Park. Its varied habitats and wildlife is an opportunity for an amazing adventure experience! Offer some of the very best opportunities to see Africa’s big game animals.

 

We’ll spend five days in Kruger – camping of course – and get right into the heart of the Park. You’ll be with an expert guide and get to really explore the area and learn about this wild place. That means – game drives, a guided walk through the bush to search for big game, a night drive in search of nocturnal wildlife. This a wild place and these are wild animals, so no guarantees – but you have a good chance of catching sight of lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo, leopard and wild dog.

 

We then turn southwards and head for Swaziland. It’s time to prep for your community development projects. 

Volunteering in the community: Days 8 - 20

But it would be a big mistake to think of Swaziland as second best. It’s quite different in feel from either of its neighbours although, of course, it does share their geography.

  • Location: Ezulwini Valley

Day 8-20 Community projects, Ezulwini, Swaziland
A couple of weeks working with communities that really need your help. You’ll be in care centres that support the children left vulnerable and alone in the wake of the AIDS pandemic. The age range of the children is from 3 to 13 and the average age is 4 years old. There’s a variety of work to be done – all badly needed and hugely welcomed: everything from helping with building to running sports days, teaching the children to assisting on medical projects – the list is very long.

 

Typical volunteer activities will include:

  • Organising creative games and craft classes and practical projects to stimulate young minds.
  • Organising sports days – exercise and fun.
  • Planting a range of crops that can improve their nutrition.
  • Just being there for the children and giving them the attention and kindness they need.

A typical day will usually involve volunteering in the morning, normally between 9am and 12pm plus travelling time to your centre. You'll need to budget up to R15 per day for travelling.

 

You'll return to the backpackers for lunch, then afternoons can include Siswati lessons, trips to local hospitals/people in the community, included trips or free time to relax and explore the local area. You’ll also visit the Mantenga Cultural Village to learn something about Swazi culture, lifestyle and traditional dancing. 

 

 

Beach time!: Days 21 - 28

Next Leg

Destination info

Finally, there’s Mozambique. Undiscovered is the word. You’ll find paradise beaches on the shores of the beautiful blue ocean – especially in the wilder north of the country.

 

Perfect diving, loads of little offshore island gems and swimming with whale sharks (they eat plankton, not people). Sleep off lunch under the palm trees.

  • Location: Tofo Beach, Mozambique

Day 21-27 Marine conservation tour, Tofo Beach, Mozambique
We’re heading for a week of relaxation on the idyllic tropical ocean beaches of Mozambique.

 

The first night we spend in a Mozambican bush lodge en route to Tofo in southern Mozambique. Then on to the stunning Inhambane peninsula, where we’ll be staying at a beautiful laid-back beach village. Ever wanted to swim with wild whale sharks? This is your chance. Tofo is a marine paradise with coral reefs, whales and nesting turtles. Nearby is the vibrant historic trading port of Inhambane.

 

We’ll be here for five days, so there’s plenty of opportunity to try out beach life Mozambique-style and you’ll be living right there in reed huts, dorm-style, among the coconut palms on the very edge of the ocean. There’s an ocean safari – get up close and personal to whale sharks in the balmy ocean (what an adventure!) And there’s a unique opportunity to go on an ocean kayak expedition, crossing calm blue water and exploring the beautiful islands of the Inhambane Bay. South African paradise.

 

If you have a dive certificate you can get down and swim amongst the amazing coral reefs with one of the local dive operators. Of course, there’s plenty of time for chilling on the beach. There might just possibly be one or two parties as well.

 

On day 27, you will depart Mozambique and transfer to your backpackers lodge in Swaziland. 

 

Day 28

You’ll spend the final full day of your South Africa adventure back at the backpacker lodge in the Ezulwini Valley where we started out. Time to relax and catch your breath after an amazing month. Then it’s time to pack, say some tearful farewells and swap mobile numbers. On day 29 you will be transferred to O.R Tambo for your flight. (Please ensure that your flight is after 2:30pm) 

 

6 week option: Days 28 - 43

  • Location: Ezulwini Valley

If 4 weeks isn't long enough for you on this amazing trip then why not extend your African adventure and stay for an extra 2 weeks on our 6 week option?

 

Day 28-40 Return to the project in Swaziland

After the beaches of Mozambique you'll return to the volunteer project in Swaziland for the final couple of weeks. The children will definitely be pleased to see you again, and by choosing the 6 week option you will have the chance to be much more involved with the day to day care of the children at the centre, allowing you to have much more interaction with them, and even helping out with teaching. Working with the children for this longer period is a much more rewarding experience.

 

Your typical volunteer activities will include:

  • Basic teaching of English and Maths
  • Organising the children at meal times and in the mornings before classes
  • Stimulating, creative games and craft classes
  • Arranging sports days for excersise and fun

Day 41-43

On day 41 you'll return to the Lodge in Ezulwini and spend a full weekend relaxing. Or you can get in some last-minute hiking and exploring before preparing to leave after the weekend. The programme will end on day 43 when you will be taken back to the bus station for your transfer to Johannesburg.

Basically it was the best month of my life by far, highlights definitely include seeing a Cheetah hunt and kill a Steenbok in Kruger Park, doing a zip lining weekend in Swaziland from valley side to valley side and finally quad biking along the beaches in Mozambique. But everything was awesome the people were great and everyday was very fun, interesting and it passed too quick.

What were the highlights of your trip?

The volunteering was the best thing i've ever done, the children are so happy and the teachers so thankful. The nursery we were meant to be at wasn't actually open, so I ended up doing the sports program, which was definitely more fun! I ended up staying an extra 2 weeks because I wanted to do more volunteering! The Kruger safari was incredible, I had never done anything like it before and loved every minute.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Swazi time is a real thing, go with the flow of the lifestyle as nothing is set in stone. If it's raining, cloudy, the buses don't run so the children can't go to school so you have a day off volunteering. Make use of these days and don't just sit around! Climb mount sheeba! Be open minded and don't expect everything to run as planned. 2. Be friendly with the locals, you'll probably be proposed to about 10 million times, and even if you say you're married, they'll say you need two husbands! 3. The amazing lodge is so close to a shopping mall, which I really didn't expect! You can buy everything you need out there!

Everything! The itinerary looks too good to be true but somehow the trip still managed to far exceed my expectations. Safari was incredible and relaxing, partying and whale shark diving in Tofo was also amazing. The Swaziland experience is just out of this world. Working with the kids is both fun and fulfilling and at no point do you feel like you're on a trip, you feel like you're at home. The lodge is beautiful and relaxed and the program team end up like brothers and sisters. Just incredible.

What were the highlights of your trip?

All of it! I seriously loved every single minute of it, it was so much fun, and I learnt so much too. I guess that if I had to choose something, it wouold be walking around a Swazi village and meeting all the children, who come running up to you for cuddles and photographs! The Safari is very surreal, and I tracked and followed a herd of elephants, which took my breath away. I saw the big five, twice, and saw a leopard eating its pray in a tree, incredable. The swimming with the whale shark was also out of this world, massive creatures, but so peaceful. The beachs in Tofo, Mozambique, WOW! Seriously, I cannot recommend this trip highly enough, if your thinking about doing it, GO!

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1 - Always keep an open mind - you will without any doubt end up doing things you weren't expecting to do and things you have never done before, and that is more amazing than scary, believe me! 2 - Say yes - for the same reasons! There is so much to do and be done, and you don't want to miss out on anything 3 - You can buy pretty much everything you need in Swaziland, the shops are an easy 10 minute walk away, so if packing is proving difficult you're fine leaving toiletries etc behind, you can get them easily here

What were the highlights of your trip?

* Seeing the Big 5 animals in Kruger * Working with and teaching the local children * Water sports in Mozambique * Exploring Swaziland and learning their culture

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. If you do the 6 week option you will be teaching all the time so dont need any work gloves / goggles as you dont do those activities. You could take colouring books/ lego / puzzles instead to do with the children. 2. Dont take many white clothes as they wont stay white very long. You do need a long skirt for the village tours but if you dont have one you will be provided with a sarong to wear. At other times we wore shorts and short skirts. 3. You dont need mosquito nets in Kruger or Swaziland only in Mozambique, also the beds already have nets on them so you dont need to buy one but you may want to take your own anyway.

What were the highlights of your trip?

Biggest highlight was the orphan care experience, caring for the same 15 children for 5 weeks (i extended my trip whilst out there) and totally falling in love with them and really feeling like i made a difference. Kruger and Mozambique were amazing experiences too and rounded the trip of well.

Prepare for white clothes to be binned! Take antihistamine tablets in case of bad reaction to mozzy bites - they are a godsend. Seriously do not underestimate the strength of the sun at any time of day. Factor 30 minimum!! And yes, you can get burnt in the shade!
