travel with heart

We believe travel should be a force for good. Our goal is to help sustain and support destinations we love, like South Africa.

On our South Africa Impact Tour, explore the must-sees, but go even further. Volunteer, enjoy culturally immersive experiences that benefit the local community and work alongside community members with the support of South African non-profits we are proud to partner with on programs that include education and clean water initiatives.


Impact tours were designed to truly immerse you into the cultures of some of the world’s most compelling
destinations. As you learn about the people who live there, you’ll discover more about yourself.
