Africa Tours for School & University/TAFE Groups

Our International Tours for school and university groups are all-inclusive, affordable and fully customised. Tours are generally facilitated with a cultural, environmental, tourism or design technology focus depending on a school or university’s preferences.

Cultural Programs spend time exploring the ideologies, history, customs, arts and foods that differentiate countries visited. They encourage interaction with local peoples and expose students to different modes of living.

Environmental Programs concentrate on immersion and adventure in exceptional natural environments. They allow contextual exploration of Environmental Management principles and deliver a strong conservation message.

Tourism Programs focus on the Tourism Industry including drivers, challenges and innovations. They investigate major tourist attractions from an economic and environmental perspective to evaluate the sustainability of current operations.

Design Technology Programs investigate Sustainable Development in the context of megacities like Cairo and Johannesburg. They showcase innovations in architecture, agriculture and tourism.

The flexible design of our International Tours means itineraries can be adapted to fulfil curriculum requirements for any of the following subjects: Geography, Biology, Earth & Environmental Science, Marine Science, Investigating Science, Agricultural Science, Languages, History and Tourism. Schools or universities can experience one of our pre-existing itineraries or choose from a variety of incredible destinations to build a program that perfectly suits their needs.
