Kruger to Coast Volunteer Adventure
Duration: from 4 Weeks to 12 Weeks
Countries: Mozambique, South Africa, SwazilandThere are 3 distinct parts to this travel experience each with its own interesting flavor... In Kruger you will be joining a camping safari holiday. Here your days will be spent on game drives searching for the incredibly diverse wild life that this world renowned national park has to offer while at night you will be camped out under the African stars, sitting around a crackling campfire listening to tales of the African bush. While in Kruger your guide will teach you about the animals and plants of the African savanna and how important it is to protect this beautiful but fragile eco-system.
When you arrive in the beautiful mountainous kingdom of Swaziland your role will switch to volunteer as you get involved in projects that aim to uplift the lives of Orphaned and vulnerable children. There are now literally thousands of children in Swaziland who are either orphaned or classified as vulnerable as result of HIV AIDS and your role will be to play your part in improving the lives of these needy children.
The final week of your experience is spent on the beautiful golden sand beaches of sunny Mozambique. After two weeks of hard work in Swaziland it’ll be time to relax in this tropical climate and swim the blue waters of the warm and inviting Indian Ocean. Mozambique is a colorful and vibrant African country like no other and its here that you will get to spend the last days of your trip. A wonderful finale to an inspiring tour.

Our accommodation between excursions is at the Lidwala Backpacker Lodge in the Ezulwini Valley. The All Out Africa office is situated here as well. It is conveniently located on the main Ezulwini road less than 2km from most of the area’s main facilities and attractions, such as craft markets, shopping centres, hotels, and restaurants. Volunteers on social projects stay here so conservation volunteers intermingle with them when not in the field.
In Kruger you will be accommodated in safari style dome tents with two people per tent. Tent, mattress, and pillow are provided but you will need to bring your own sleeping bag. The camps are fenced so you will be safe from wild animals while in camp. The camps are well equipped with clean toilets, hot water showers and well stocked shops were you can by drinks, snacks, souvenirs etc.
In Mozambique the accommodation is in a beach backpacker lodge where you will share dorms. Bed, pillows, and sheet are provided but again you will need to bring a sleeping bag. The lodge is situated right on the beach and set among lush indigenous vegetation and tall coconut palms. There are communal toilets and hot water showers. The lodge has its own restaurant and bar which is located high on top of a sand dune with sweeping views over the bay and out into the Indian Ocean.

“The mixture of the wildlife experience, the volunteer work and the holiday in Mozambique was really good. If you travel for 4 weeks with a group you get close to the people which makes it even more fun. Also the staff from All Out and at Lidwala did a really good job.”
