Tanzania GAP 2009 Expedition photos!

As the Malawi team set off on an incredible six week adventure through 5 countries I thought it was time to take a look at what the Tanzania GAP team got up to:

Country No.1 - Swaziland
Although heavy rainfall prevented the team from wild camping, they still managed to trek far into Malolotja reserve.

Almost deserted Malolotja lies on the border of Swaziland and South Africa. A prestine wilderness that appears to go on forever....

Country No.2 - Mozambique
First stop is the Capital of Maputo where the team enjoyed a fresh fish supper at the local fish market. Tiger prawns as long as your arm!

Onto the dive course. Many of the team were diving for their first time and all past there PADI open water. Freddie can't wait to get down and experience 6m wide mantas!

Other activities included burrying James on Tofo's prestine beaches.

Country No.3 - South Africa
The team wearing extremely fetching hard hats, boiler suits and gum boots are ready to pot hole!

White water river tubing in high water, adrenaline anyone?

Country No.4 - Botswana
Mostly desert the team were lucky enough to visit in the wet season and see the vast salt pans semi-submerged. A glistening white expanse as far as the eye can see.....

Onto Africa's largest in land Delta, silently drifing along the water ways of the Okavango. 2 nights camping with the animals and walking through the bush.

The team come very close to elephants while on the safari in Chobe National park. This spot was just metres from where they were camping!

County No.5 - Zambia

Jumping 111m and experiencing the falls in flood made the perfect end to an incredible expedition!

Volunteer on any of our GAP projects in Africa in 2010 and experience some of the amazing sights and activities that this diverse continent has to offer.
