Today you will start your community project work. Since projects are determined closer to your actual tour date, here is a glimpse at what a typical day might look like:

Experience the real, un-cut Cape Town as a responsible traveller and volunteer daily in the township communities surrounding the city.

Work with children or with elderly people. Choose to entertain kids in a hospital where they need it the most or you can assist them doing their homework. Or you can choose to work in a special needs care centre.

Choose a conservation project at one of the few nature reserves that are in and around Cape Town.
