Join us on a multi country Sub Sahara African Yuda Bands Humanitarian Adventure (Yuda Venture) through Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana! Sightseeing will mostly take place in Botswana while most of our service and cultural experiences will be in Zimbabwe where Yuda Bands has sponsored hundreds of students to go to high school since 2016.

See last year’s trip on Instagram @YudaVenturesAfrica

Below you’ll find snapshots of last year’s itinerary. Our upcoming trip will include all of these activities unless COVID-19 or other restrictions limit us. What we can guarantee is that this will be the trip of a lifetime!

Chicken Coops

As the economy of Zimbabwe continues to struggle the majority of the population remains unemployed and hungry. We will build and provide chicken coops, feed, and ten laying hens to many struggling families. An experienced chicken farmer will then instruct each family on how to property care for the birds and coops and teach how to make a profit from the eggs so each family can continue to better their situation, long after we have returned home.

Victoria Falls

One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Victoria Falls will be a highlight of the trip. More water passes over these falls than any other waterfall making Vic Falls the largest waterfall in the world. Adventure seekers can join us on a zip-line over the falls, bungee jump off the 15th highest bridge in the world, or take a dip in Angel’s pool at the edge of the waterfall.

Clothing Project

Each volunteer will select a family to support on the trip by providing them clothing. Before leaving, participants will be given clothing sizes to collect for their family. We’ll deliver the clothes to each family and visit them in their humble homes. In the homes is where you will see true African culture and fall in love with the people you serve.

Chobe Animal Safari

Chobe National Game Park is rated as one of the most impressive wildlife parks in all of Africa, boasting one of the largest elephant concentrations in the world. It’s the setting for numerous National Geographic documentaries. While nobody can guarantee wildlife, four of the “Big Five” animals can be found in this park.

Service with Students

In developing counties it’s important that we serve side by side the locals in order to build confidence in the youth. Other groups that travel, serve and leave do not teach sustainability. Yuda Bands currently sponsors 250 youth in Zimbabwe who work together to complete four major community service projects throughout the year as an ongoing effort to better the community and create more responsible citizens. Learn more about this. We will simply help them complete on of their four annual service projects.

Chobe River Cruise

Take a relaxing afternoon/evening boat cruise on the Chobe River, as we watch wildlife gather to drink the life-giving water. The Chobe is one of the most important rivers in Africa and flows from Angola through Zimbabwe over Vic Falls and out to the sea. We’ll see more elephants that we can count and come within fee of crocodiles and hippos. As the sun drops, it becomes apparent why many consider a Chobe River sunset among the most beautiful in the world.

Cultural Experiences

In Zimbabwe the Yuda Bands students will put on a performance for us of native dancing and song. We’ll travel by boat to Namibia to spend an afternoon exploring nationally preserved cultural villages and villagers living daily life as they have for centuries. We’ll enjoy a traditional braai (bbq) in Botswana with a local family who will teach us about customs and cultures as we sample unique meats and the popular Mopane Worms.

Watering Hole Bunker

An underground hidden bunker situated only feet away from a man made watering hole allows us to get up close and personal to the wildlife the watering hole attracts. On any given night you can see dozens of elephant herds take their turn drinking from the fresh water hole. A sense of calm and peace will come over you as you experience the African bush on a whole new level.
