About Program

South Africa has long been one of the most popular travel destinations in the world. If you've been there once, you will not wonder why. 2000 km of coastline, numerous lagoons, green scrubland and tropical rainforests, endless deserts and savannahs, and majestic mountain formations surrounding fertile valleys with almost all African wildlife. Especially famous is the Garden Route, a panoramic road of about 365 km from Mossel Bay to Port Elizabeth, along the coast of the Indian Ocean.

Cape Town, named after the Cape of Good Hope, is the second largest city in the country. Table Mountain, landmark of the city, invites you to eventful excursions and is only one of countless sights you should not miss.

Our RGV projects deal with the protection and care of South Africa's inhabitants. Whether teaching in different schools, caring for seniors, a surf project for children or animal conservation projects with the Big Five, street dogs, whales, dolphins and many more. Decide for yourself!
