Your Timeless Journey Awaits...

Make a difference with travel

Tourism is a big part of championing the African continent and contributing to its conservation. When done right, tourism can provide much-needed jobs and income, while also helping to protect Africa’s wildlife and natural resources. Visiting this continent and its incredible game parks, cities, and people is one of the most impactful ways to love on, and invest in, Africa!

While mandatory conservation tariffs are helpful for protecting each region, we believe it is important to go even further to preserve and prosper our beloved continent. When guests travel with us, they are only booked with accommodations that prioritise and contribute to local conservation and community-building efforts. From employing locals to building local schools and creches, training up rangers and participating in animal tagging and rewilding efforts, our partners are powerfully investing in Africa, too.



I AM WATER believes in ocean conservation through transformative ocean experiences for youth from underserved communities. We are on a mission to ignite a movement of blue minds across the planet, to facilitate physical and emotional connections to the aquatic environment, to build understanding of the interdependence of healthy humans and healthy oceans and to influence behaviours to protect our global seas. We do this through a variety of ocean connection programmes. Their flagship is our Ocean Guardians Workshops, a two day immersive ocean connection experience using snorkelling and the principles of freediving along with mindfulness to facilitate a meaningful connection to the ocean to inspire a lasting behaviour change for the good of the ocean.

Timeless Africa Safaris is proud to have sponsored 34 learners from Pelican Park Primary School on an Ocean Guardian Workshop in 2023.

Feed the Khaltsha is a not-for-profit company that grows and sells organic vegetables from their garden in the Khayelitsha township on the outskirts of Cape Town. While they sell their produce directly to the surrounding community, they also supply local restaurants and provide food for a neighbouring NGO, Sibongile Day and Night Care Centre, that looks after township children with cerebral palsy (CP) and other severe disabilities. As their garden’s yield has increased, Feed the Khaltsha has been able to employ local men and train them in growing food, too. Timeless Africa Safaris supports them monthly, along with an ongoing business mentorship for the organisation’s leaders.

Providing educational arts for at-risk youth to spark creative thinking and awaken the entrepreneurial spirit is the mission of the Lalela Project; a Cape Town-based initiative with which Timeless Africa has worked for many years. Lalela’s arts curriculum not only helps to care for children in the hours after school, when they are most vulnerable to violence and abuse, but develops their imagination and teaches them how to map and manifest their dreams and goals. It is a program which create permanent change with positive outlooks, community role models and the mindset for the students to design a more certain future for themselves and their communities.

Giving a helping hand to those in need is the driving force behind Coats for Cape Town, which was established by Timeless Africa CEO, Marco van Embden, in an effort to make a tangible difference to the health and comfort of the local homeless community. In a study released in 2020, it was estimated that approximately 14 000 men, women and children live on the streets of Cape Town. There they are faced with what little shelter they can find when the stormy Cape winters bring icy winds, driving rain and plummeting temperatures. Every year Marco and his team source coats from kind donors and suppliers as far afield as Europe and distribute them with the help of non-profit partners like Straatwerk.
