DAY 1-2 Meet your group in Atlanta and fly together to

Johannesburg, South Africa. Upon arriving, orient yourself

to this historic and cultural rich city and spend our first night

together as a group.

DAY 3-5After a good night’s sleep you will transfer to meet

our service partners for three full days of immersive

community service. You could find yourself working

in the garden, painting children’s bedrooms, or simply

playing with the children. This is a chance to make lasting

relationships with an incredible community! On your

last day of service, you will bid farewell and transfer to

Marakele National Park to prep for your safari.

DAY 6-8Awaken to your first safari adventure on the game reserve

where animals roam free in their natural habitat. Look for

rhino, elephant, giraffe, zebra and lion as you cruise this

untouched reserve in open air vehicles. Spend your nights

in camps on tent platforms in the African bush. Witness

conservationists at work and take the opportunity to assist

veterinarians in the collection bio-data and learn about

wildlife conservation, hands on.
