Join IMR in Amazing South Africa!

South Africa Safari

June 16-22, 2024

If you are looking for adventure this summer, don’t miss the IMR trip to South Africa. This trip includes not one but TWO safaris! You’ll participate in an evening safari the day you arrive plus a full-day safari on day six of your trip. At two exclusive game reserves in South Africa, you’ll have the chance to see white lions, hippos, elephants, ostriches, giraffes, zebras, African buffalos, wildebeests, and many, many more African animals in their natural habitats.

Your trip will also include a visit the PheZulu Zulu village where the Gasa clan welcomes visitors, giving them the opportunity to savor the taste and feel the rhythm of Africa. Guides will take you through traditional beehive shaped thatched huts and explain the various Zulu artifacts, beliefs, and rituals. You’ll admire traditional Zulu handicrafts and participate in traditional dances as you gain insight into the fascinating Zulu culture.

There are two versions of this trip to match your budget. The Signature trip includes accommodations at a 4-star hotel with plenty of amenities. The Classic trip includes 2-star accommodations with safe, clean, comfortable rooms.

Your Work in Clinic

Extreme poverty affects a large proportion of the population of the suburbs surrounding Durban, which impacts the overall health of the people. Many lack access to the basic requirements of life including clean water, adequate nutrition, sanitation, access to vaccinations, health education, and more. You and your team will provide medical and dental care, medical supplies, and education for the people you will meet to take care of their health and that of their families. It’s an opportunity to truly make a difference.

About Durban, South Africa

Durban is located on the east coast of South Africa and home to miles of pristine beaches. Use your free time outside of clinic to take a rickshaw ride along the beach or walk along the famous boardwalk where the Durban beaches come alive with world-class surfers taking on the giant waves. Or watch the sunrise from this beautiful promenade.

You will have the opportunity to enjoy local eateries, curry houses — Durban has the largest Indian population outside of India — and oceanside dining where the flavor of Durban comes in full swing! Or enjoy food at a traditional South African braai, where barbecued meats and Chakalaka are sure to tempt any palate.

Durban has an extensive, fascinating history, and the city is full of museums, art galleries, and other cultural attractions waiting to be explored. Expect the weather to be warm and sunny — June is winter in South Africa and part of the country’s dry season, which should help make your time there ideal.
