Journeys with Purpose

The Great African Adventure

South Africa to Zambia 2018

This is the great African adventure you didn’t know you were waiting for! It’s for the explorers, the pathfinders, the trailblazers…and even the desk jockeys. But it’s not your average vacation – this is a journey into the heart of Africa that will take your breath away.

There’s something magical about Africa that touches the soul – a profoundly uplifting experience that gets under your skin and into your heart. Mama Africa is waiting to welcome you with breathtaking sunsets, spectacular natural wonders, and vast landscapes of wild and rugged beauty.

If you’re passionate about adventure travel, and want to make a difference, Journeys with Purpose will take you off the beaten track on a once-in-a-lifetime expedition!

More Details:

From South Africa to Zambia , be prepared to embrace diversity – you’ll dine under the stars, interact with wildlife, experience new traditions and cultures, and meet Africa’s protectors – the top conservationists who work tirelessly to preserve this continent’s natural, wild heritage. From collaring elephants to interacting with wild dogs or cheetah, these are bucket list experiences that only a few people ever get to experience in their lifetime.

Africa is not for the faint-of-heart, so you’ll want to travel in packs… Gather your crew, or assemble a squad – you’ll want company when you’re 4x4ing across rough terrain and canoeing on the mighty Zambezi river. Each JWP will be a unique once-off expedition, NEVER to be experienced again…

Elephant foot

Do I need a driver’s licence?

Yes. This is not a scenic excursion from the backseat of a game vehicle. You will be driving a legit 4×4 safari vehicle across Africa.

Will I see wild animals?

Yes. We will be in the wild.

Will there be wine?

Of course, don’t be daft.

Will I have fun?

What do you think?

Is it safe? 

This is Africa and things do happen, but the JWP crew will be there to guide you, support and advise you wherever possible on day to day events.

Can I come on my own?

Hell yes , the idea is to get a crew together but we will make a plan if you flying solo.
