On the border that separates South Africa from Swaziland is the community of Bulembu. Once a thriving mining town, Bulembu was abandoned in 2001 along with its hospital and 1,200 homes. A group of individuals purchased the town with a grand vision; the advancement of God’s kingdom in Swaziland. This is being achieved by renovating as many homes as necessary to house 2,000 children orphaned by the AIDS pandemic of Swaziland, teach AIDS awareness, and have self-sustaining community through the start-up of various cottage industry initiatives. With the highest percentage of AIDS of any country in the world, Swaziland needs your help!
Mission Discovery short term mission teams are needed to come alongside Bulembu Ministries to renovate homes and schools. The homes will house 8 orphans each, along with a foster dad, mom, and grandmother. Every afternoon you'll connect with a house of children. You'll help with homework, help do chores, play games and engage with the children's care-givers.
On our last day in Bulembu we will depart for an unforgettable tour that includes Sudwala Caves. Enjoy an hour tour through these impressive caves. You'll visit the Lonecreek waterfall and the Bridal Veil Waterfall. You'll have lunch at the famous Harrie’s Pancakes, visit God’s Window and Wonderview before heading to your lodging destination, Hippo Hollow Country Estate.
The next day you'll depart on an unforgettable full day safari in the world famous Kruger Park in an open safari vehicle. Your guide will take you on a hunt for the big 5! You'll arrive back at Hippo Hollow Country Estates late afternoon and enjoy this stunning venue, where Hippo's sometimes come onto the lawn in the evening. That night before dinner you'll enjoy a cultural dancing performance at the adjacent Shangaan River Club.
