The jewel of the Cape, a 250km stretch of pristine beaches and beautiful forested areas. The Garden Route boasts some of our most popular social and conservation volunteering projects. You can choose from a huge variety of programmes such as helping children in Jeffery’s Bay, working with wine farmers in Plettenberg Bay or assisting young surfers in Mossel Bay. The Garden Route provides the perfect backdrop for volunteering projects, and there are a number of amazing activities and tourist hot-spots all long the coast. A typical day might be waking up for a sunrise surf, enjoying a fresh fruit breakfast, helping in a school, or in a sanctuary for animals. Then spending your evenings listening to live music on the beach and enjoying a classic African meal with friends from all over the world.
