We’re always looking to get your perspective on Africa so we’ve put together a list of the of the best You Tube videos to date including everything from time lapse takes to full on overland expeditions and reasons to voluntour in just one day! Watch these and fall in love with Africa, or as the team would say, “do it over,” as this is one continent that will keep you coming back! Before we kick off the reels we’d like to send out a huge Big Five thanks to all the travellers, bloggers and project leaders that made this post possible…
For Namibian vistas this overland time lapse vid is knock out You Tube viewing – and we love the last shot of the Matterhorn of Africa as the sun goes down over Spitzkoppe! At only 49 seconds it will definitely leave you wanting more, so why not book a seat on our 12-day Cape Desert Safari
Considering a longer overland stint? This is yet another must watch. From Africa’s wildlife to its beaches, plus bungy jumping and beyond this vid really spells out the vibe of trucking round the continent. Go the distance on our 58-day Ultimate African Adventure
It doesn’t get much better than this, as next up a group of lucky travellers are catching up with the silverback in Uganda , and with those powerful zoom lenses it almost feels like you’re part of the band! Do the trek on our 36-day Rivers Lakes & Mountains
Improving educational opportunities for the children of Africa is one of the most powerful ways to make a difference, and in Uganda you can give back in just one day. To date, roughly 10,000 volunteers have spent a day with Softpower Education project, and in that time travellers have been able to renovate, refurbish, build and paint at more than 50 schools! Do your bit for Africa on our 14-day Gorilla Encounter
Check our trucks in this video from GoErinGo.com and visit Erin Michelson’s website as this talented globetrotter has recently published her first book, Adventure Philanthropist: Great Adventures Volunteering Abroad. Available on Lulu and Amazon, the book, which already has a five star review, features details of Erin’s voluntour experiences in Livingstone, her Okavango Delta mokoro safari and gorilla trek. After booking a seat on the 19-day Desert Tracker Tour Erin decided to hop on our 6-day Troop To The Gorillas – a second jaunt after feeling the love for overlanding!
A business consultant and self-described “adventure philanthropist”, Erin has travelled to more than 60 countries as part of a two year journey, where she donated money to various humanitarian causes along the way.
