Trip itinerary

The beauty of this trip is that your days will be filled with structured volunteer duties. You’ll have the evenings and weekends to explore however you please. As a rough idea, this is the daily schedule you can expect:

Day 1

Once you’ve touched down at Cape Town International Airport, your pre-arranged transfer will take you straight to your volunteer accommodation in Muizenberg, situated only 3 minutes away from the beach. Relax, settle in and meet some of the other volunteers.

Head to your orientation with the other volunteers, where you’ll be introduced to Cape Town and the surrounding areas, as well as to the project staff and volunteers. You’ll also receive a comprehensive overview of the project, the communities in which you’ll be working and your role as a volunteer.
