Our vision is to open doors and encourage contact to be able to bring the “Other South Africa” closer to you. This is the best way to expose you to important elements of our wonderful “Rainbow Nation” including the Xhosa, Zulu and Ndebele cultures and to better understand their rituals and daily challenges.
It is our vision and motivation that underprivileged families, especially children are left with a ray of sunlight after your visit to them. Be it interactive through the building of an Adventure Playground (Plus-minus 3 hrs) at a crèche, or the purchase of bicycles for school children who at times need to walk over 8 km to get to school.
On request we arrange individual Township tours with trained local guides during which Community Projects are visited and where in-depth information and background to township life can be gleaned.
We have been supporting several conservation projects in Southern Africa. Together with incentive groups we have successfully darted Rhino’s in order to attach tracking devices to monitor the Rhino’s movement and health, and to easily identify the Rhino.
Among the above, That’s Africa has also donated to Rhino’s without Borders and the Chipembere Project.
