Holiday with a difference


We have come a long way, but South Africa is also the most unequal country in the world with the biggest wealth gap between rich and poor. We cannot look away from these realities and are compelled to do something about it.  

For this reason, we support the least, the lonely, the lost and those who have been left behind. Just outside Cape Town city centre, we come alongside community initiatives that do amazing transformational work in the lives of locals struggling with their everyday needs.     

Themba Travel will allow you to experience the country in the company of these true local heroes. As a volunteer, you will support these trailblazers reach the goals they have for their community. 

Our Volunteering holiday trips create genuine interactions as you deliver true value to amazing projects. You share your skills and experience; we’ll share our country. Our beautiful South Africa! 

You will stay in beautiful small establishments around Cape Town, close to the beach, amongst the vineyard, in the mountains or in the African bush. We are no strangers to the projects because we have first hand experience which made it easy for us to handpick these grassroots projects. 

Whether you are an individual, a group of friends, family or a team who wants to lend a hand to those who are already changing lives, your time with us will be both memorable and meaningful. We can’t wait for you to visit our beautiful country! 

We match your skills and experiences with the project's needs so you can have the greatest impact.
