Authentic-Small Group-Grass roots-Service-Based-Travel to Southern Africa


Are you searching to travel to Africa, to give back, to work and to learn?  Are you wishing you could find a group to guide you, keep you safe, show you the good stuff?  Hoping for a group who know the local people, who are in fact connected to the community you are serving?  Are you okay with being tired, dirty and hot at the end of the working day?  Do you also want to see the country's beauty, in fact, tour it enough to feel as though you know it?  And while you are all the way deep into southern Africa, would you then want to go on safari?  A really good safari?

 

Then you may have arrived.  Jacaranda Journeys takes small groups to Swaziland, Southern Africa to give back in the form of physical service work. The projects vary depending upon the needs of the community being served and the talents of the group.  Trips run about 2 weeks on the ground, plus travel time.  The groups are small, 12 travellers maximum.  

 

TYPES OF GROUPS THESE TRIPS ARE IDEAL FOR?

-extended family trip, book it privately, just your group, customized dates, project and events

-women only mother-daughter, sisters, friends

-families, kids all ages welcome

-fathers and sons, friends, we can add our male leaders in for these trips, if needed

-don't have 12 people you can bring?  then join a mixed group, email us for future dates and trip details

 

WE PRIDE OURSELVES IN OUR ATTENTION TO DETAIL

The guides are Canadian.  Our local assistants are Swazis who speak English.  You will stay in accommodations that are vibrant, African in design, full of flare and fun, yet the beds are comfortable and the showers do have hot water. You are moved around in air conditioned vans with highest safety standards.   The breakfasts are hot or cold and delicious. Lunches on the worksite are home made, healthy and hearty. Dinners are either catered for or at a good neighbouring restaurant. 

 

COST as always, costs vary, depending upon group size, season, and days on the ground, but roughly $5,750 CAD (no PST or GST) for the 14 days, INCL the safari at Inyati Lodge in South Africa http://www.inyati.co.za/
