Rural Community and Project Canaan Service Trip – November 2018, November 17th – November 27th

Each volunteer will tour Project Canaan, have the opportunity to visit a local homestead and participate in work projects that are needed on the property. We will celebrate Thanksgiving and also help in preparations for Christmas. An optional safari at Hlane Game Park will be included. Teams will stay at the Nkonyeni Golf Resort just minutes from Project Canaan.

The trip cost will include the ground costs PLUS the airline ticket cost if you are booking your ticket through Heart for Africa. Total trip cost reflects round trip air from Atlanta to Johannesburg. Heart for Africa can arrange a feeder flight into Atlanta for an additional cost. To make arrangements for flights into Atlanta please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Sarah Windham at after registering for the trip. Contact Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Windham, for trip costs.

  • Limited to 22 volunteers

If making your travel arrangements through Heart for Africa, you will depart North America on November 17th and arrive in Johannesburg, South Africa on November 18th. At the conclusion of the trip, you will depart South Africa on November 26th and arrive back home on November 27th.

*Please note: The cost with airfare is based on our blocked seating rate with the airlines. Volunteers must register with air by August 14th, 2018 in order to get the blocked seating rate. For registrations after this date, we will book individual tickets at the regular published fare at the time. If we do not have more than ten people sing up with airfare by August 14th, 2018, we cannot keep our block and we will need book individual tickets. The total trip cost may change according to airline rates at the time.

Self Bookers (No airfare through Heart for Africa)

If you are self-booking your own airfare, you will need to coordinate your arrival and departure in South Africa with Heart for Africa in order to join the rest of the team. Please contact Sarah Windham at with your travel arrangements.

Please note that Canada Revenue Agency does not permit issuance of official tax receipts for payments made towards service trips.

The costs of the trips included lodging, meals, supplies, ground transportation, administrative fees and airfare (if you have elected for Heart for Africa to arrange the air portion of your trip). Due to cost and exchange rate adjustments, any remaining funds will go toward the general support of the mission.
