Happy Christmas to all our volunteers and friends. We hope you all have a happy and healthy 2014, and would love to see you in South Africa in the new year!
Volunteer in the mountains… Why not? Even more of a reason now – we’re solar powered!
Come and visit us – we’re going eco. Once we got here, we realised that the cost of electricity installation far surpasses that of installing an all singing, all dancing alternative energy supply, so logic and finances automatically dictated that we immediately got straight on the blower to all the alternative energy suppliers here in South Africa. We have now opted for our first energy purchase to be a two solar panel system, providing a huge amount of amp hours daily. Later on, we’ll upgrade to a dual system, which will provide us with our own wind turbine to work in tandem with the solar units.
So, as well as giving back to the communities you visit and stay amongst, whilst on holiday here in Drakensberg with us, you will be minimising your footprint, as we are using not only renewable energy sources but a sustainable water source for both household and drinking water too!
What more reason do you need to come and volunteer with us in the Southern Drakensberg?
Volunteer in the Drakensberg mountains. Leave your office for the outdoors!
The Southern Drakensberg. Majestic, powerful, clear, beautiful. An adventure. Come and join us for long walks through the mountain paths to pools filled with crystal clear water, long-forgotten caves decorated with paintings – a relic from bushmen of previous eras. Enjoy the clean fresh air, the beautiful sun as it sets over the mountains, fall asleep to the sound of the Polela river gently running by. Relax and treat yourself to our famous chocolate cake on the deck, or curl up with a good book by the fire after a long day’s work. The mountains are a way of life, not just a holiday.
Children at primary school in rural South Africa, all wanting to play, and learn gymnastics from a professional coach. Something they had never had the opportunity to do before. Something they did every Wednesday for 4 weeks. Something they still continue to do, and will now continue to do because they love it. #empower
