Quote :
The volunteer work in the African program is multi-faceted and
includes working with children in an orphanage teaching English and
basic sanitation, hygiene and nutrition through games and activities.
Our volunteers will also renovate and revitalise the sometimes run-down
facilities with fresh coats of paint, new play equipment and the
construction of bathrooms or kitchens.

The volunteer work also includes helping build and
install sustainable farming units which allow for families and, in
particular, single mothers to start a micro business and through this
gain employment and income for their family.

VESA has also begun a house building program in which
the local Prince (Anduna) identifies less fortunate families and VESA
constructs houses and bathrooms for these needy families.

Our volunteers will be working with the national
parks authority areas of conservation within the wetlands area in the
observation, capture and release of crocodiles, the counting of
crocodile eggs as well as feeding and cleaning the enclosures of the
smaller crocs and alligators.

Our volunteers also work with Cheetahs and Leopards
in a rehabilitation, breeding and release program; preparing the food,
feeding the cats and constructing new enclosures for the breeding pairs.

The adventure tour component of Africa Unearthed is
incredible…... Taking in two countries and a huge array of activities
you will have the time of your life. You will have the chance to come
face to face with Africa’s ‘Big Five’ wildlife on safari and snorkel
and/or learn to surf in the warm Indian Ocean…..all in the one day. Have
your bones read by a witch doctor, visit the University of Swaziland,
White Water Raft, Horse Rode or Quad Bike in Swazi and loads more!

A Volunteer Eco Students Abroad program allows you
the opportunity to make a difference and enjoy incredible moments in
some of the most beautiful and remote parts of the world.

That's the summary for the trip.

And Moa, just wait, one day you'll go on your own adventure!

I can't wait to handle one of the cheetah's. They are one of my favorite big cats.
