“Oyster made my trip very comfortable and enjoyable. After
speaking to people who had arrived at the project through
different organisations it was clear that Oyster was the best
organisation to book through as they provided useful and
clear information.”

Destination of the month

South Africa

Known to be one of the most diverse countries in Southern Africa, this country is a haven for animal lovers, wildlife enthusiasts and adventure travellers. Its rugged coastlines, diverse landscapes and plethora of game reserves mean that a trip to South Africa is a must for all bucket lists.

Many Oyster travellers choose to maximise their experience in South Africa and join several of our projects. We offer a £50 discount per project if you choose to combine.
