Monday 18th May 2009

Vivisto help gap year travellers experience the real Africa through their volunteer projects - whether that be conservation projects, community development or action and adventure programmes, and they have now announced 3 exciting new programmes.

Great White Shark Research

Volunteers are required to assist with the research of Great White Shark in Gansbaai, South Africa. You will be involved in Shark Cage Diving, data capture, logging of shark fin information, shark bites to other mammals such as whales and dolphins and also be involved in Penguin habitat conservation efforts.

8 days, 7 nights South Africa to Namibia Overland Tour

This trip will leave you full of unforgettable memories and will expand your mind, as you experience the sparse Kalahari desert, hot springs, forests, river canyons and the spectacular table mountain, not to mention friendly people, diverse culture and breathtaking scenery along the way.
