Community tours & excursions
The Community Tours and Excursions are organized by Pride ‘n Purpose, Ulusaba’s charitable
arm. The basic philosophy behind its work is the principle of empowering people to help themselves while promoting sustainable development.
The different types of tours available are:
• Day in the life:
The Day in a Life village tour looks into some of the charitable projects and schemes Ulusaba is actively involved with. We tailor this tour’s itinerary according to your interests.
• It's Child's Play:
The It’s Child’s Play tour has more hands on activities. You will have the opportunity to share your skills and teach children anything from new songs to the school numbers and alphabet.
• Justicia Village Tour:
The Justicia Village tour has more of a cultural emphasis
All of Pride’n Purposes’s expenses are funded by Ulusaba and Virgin Unite, the group’s entrepreneurial foundation, so 100% of donations can be put into the much needed projects to
improve living conditions for the local population. All money raised through those tours goes to the
Canyons, Cultures and Contrasts
A day out on the famed ‘Panorama Route’ along the Drakensberg Escarpment: this tour features
visits to the Victorian Town of Pilgrims Rest, the infamous Robber’s Grave, Blyde River Canyon, The
Three Rondavels, God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Lisbon Waterfalls. You’ll get up close
and personal with some of the region’s natural beauty, and we’ll tell you about the history of the
area’s hardy pioneers. Lunch is enjoyed at Harries Original Pancake Restaurant in Graskop, where
sweet, freshly prepared, pancakes and fresh salads and other country fare are served.
