Why Southern Africa with THE VACATION PROJECT?
1. OUR ITINERARY IS EXCLUSIVE TO TVP TRAVELERS
Our itinerary has been curated with our partners to give you access to a unique and exclusive experience. We made the logistics of traveling between South Africa to Swaziland and volunteering with NGO Partner CROW (Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife) nothing but relaxing and a rewarding experience. CROW accepts volunteers, but if you were to go without TVP, the required time frame is much longer given the amount of logistics, effort, and coordination it takes to get volunteers on location. We have unlocked an incredible opportunity to not only experience the raw beauty of southern Africa, but also get to know the local communities that live there while helping to rescue injured, abandoned and orphaned wildlife.
2. YOU WILL GET TO SEE A LITTLE BIT OF IT ALL
You will see the big 5 of Africa, spend time with local communities and party it up with your fellow TVPers. We have worked to make sure that this adventure allows you to see the things that you might want to on your first trip to South Africa or Swaziland but also, ample time to build in activities that you might want to partake in. We have built the foundation of an unforgettable trip but you can take the wheel and add in activities and travel onward from the end of our trip.
3. YOU WILL BE TAKEN CARE OF THROUGHOUT THIS ADVENTURE
We worked with our partners to ensure that you are staying at unique lodges and hotels and will have an incredible guide to show you the way! Team TVP will ensure that all of your needs are met and anything you need at anytime will be taken care of. This trip is catered to what you and our TVP group want to see and do. You will not be disappointed!
Who is our NGO partner?
Founded over 30 years ago, CROW (Centre for Rehabilitation of Wildlife) was one of South Africa’s first dedicated wildlife rehabilitation centers. Today, CROW is still Durban’s only registered wildlife rehabilitation center dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and release of all indigenous wildlife found in KwaZulu-Natal. Run by a small, yet highly dedicated and experienced team of staff and volunteers, CROW assists over 3000 orphaned, injured and displaced animals every year. From mongoose, genets and monkeys to birds, reptiles and antelope, CROW represents a second chance at a free, safe and sustainable life for all wild animals in distress. As a registered non-profit organization, CROW relies solely on the support and goodwill of the public both locally and internationally to ensure the doors to its center remain open 365 days a year. As one of South Africa’s leading wildlife rehabilitation centers and a proud member of the IWRC (International Wildlife Rehabilitation Council), CROW strives to improve the quality of wildlife rehabilitation in South Africa and to uphold the code of ethics adopted by professional wildlife rehabilitation practitioners around the world.
