Driving Change

The EXPEDITION Project connects inspiring, sustainable projects and individuals with each other and with the resources they need, and it shares their stories with the world.

Since 2011 we have travelled 32054km, visited 353 towns & 152 projects, with the help of 405 hospitality partners to meet and understand the challenges communities face. We then connect  projects, communities, ideas and individuals with each other, share their successes and help take them one step further with contacts, expertise and funding. 

We are literally 'Driving Change'!

Dyer Island Conservation Trust, Gansbaai

The Trust was established in 2006 and clearly carries the passion of everyone involved. The eco-tourism activities of Dyer Island Cruises and Marine Dynamics, which have been awarded whale watching and shark cage diving permits, provide much of the financial backing for the Trust's core activities.

Riversdale: Ha!qua Youth Program
From the outside it looked like there was nothing going on, which made sense since our visit fell during the school holidays. At closer inspection, it was clear that we couldn't have been more wrong. The hive of activity and range of projects running at Ha!qua Youth Program surprised all of us.

Southernmost Projects - #TEP2013 Route 3

Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative
We visited the Agulhas Biodiversity Initiative (ABI) offices in Bredasdorp and were intrigued to learn about the similarities between some of the objectives of both ABI and The EXPEDITION Project. Like The EXPEDITION Project and among its many objectives, ABI aims to facilitate and improve networking and coordination between like-minded groups, with a particular focus on conservation in the Overberg. Specifically, its objectives are known as their ā€œ5 C'sā€:

Hearts of the Garden Route - #TEP2013 Route 3

Plettenberg Bay is known for its stunning beaches and glitzy holiday homes, but we found a gem of a different kind in Kranshoek on Plett's Robberg Peninsula. This was a re-visit for The EXPEDITION Project and Phillip navigated the team around to the ongoing projects of Kranshoek.

Latest Earth Fact

Earth is almost five billion years old, although life (resembling life as we know it) has only existed on the planet for the last 150 million to 200 million years. This means that life has only been present on Earth for only 5%-10% of its lifetime.

Latest Quote

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. - John Muir
