Program

DAY ONE: We depart every day at approximately 07.30 am-08.00 am from Johannesburg to the Kruger in an air-conditioned bus. We pass through some Mpumalanga farmlands and coal mining towns en route to the town of Hoedspruit. After lunch, we proceed to your accommodation at Bush Camp in the Manyeleti Game Reserve neighboring the Kruger National Park. Your first activity consists of a 3hr sunset game drive in an open vehicle. Soak in the last rays of the African sunset before becoming associated with nocturnal life in the African bush. Dinner will be served at Bush Camp at the Boma, illuminated by firelight and surrounded on most sides by nothing but the bush - a completely immersive experience!

DAY TWO: Wake up early and enjoy a packed breakfast on your way to your full day game viewing experience in the Kruger National Park. Expect to see the Big 5! Your guide will take an alternative route back to the gate in order to maximize your chances of spotting game. Return to Bush Camp for dinner and overnight stay in your chalet.

DAY THREE: After Breakfast, your guide will take you to the Funjwa Children’s School where your first day of engaging in community projects begins. This provides an educational opportunity to immerse yourself in the local children’s way of life; ideal for the humanitarian traveler wishing to learn, grow and participate.

Community service projects include:

  • Reading books to the students
  • Environmental education (climate change, eco-awareness, wildlife conservation etc.)
  • Assisting in planting a self-sustaining vegetable garden.
  • Painting classrooms.
  • Assisting in sports activities/extra-curricular entertainment (i.e. games and challenges)
  • English language skills.
  • Assisting in cooking meals for the children.

DAY FOUR AND FIVE: After breakfast, continue with your community service projects. After another day of community service projects, enjoy an afternoon game drive in the Manyeleti Reserve. Keep your eyes peeled and your cameras ready as your guide takes you on yet another immersive game-viewing experience. Return to Bush Camp to share stories with the other guests over dinner.

DAY SIX: Depart from the lodge back to Johannesburg (either your place of accommodation or O.R. Tambo International Airport) via the scenic panorama route. Witness the sheer majesty of the Blyde River Canyon and take photos of the famous Three Rondawels. You will be dropped off at your place of accommodation or at the airport between 05.00 and 06.00pm.
