Scouts & Guides Expeditions African Adventures Scouts & Guides Get Started

Our Scouts & Guides expeditions to Africa provide an eye-opening and immersive volunteering experience.

With our tailor-made expeditions, your young people can make a meaningful difference at our partner schools in Ghana, Kenya or Zanzibar. At the same time, they’ll learn new skills, explore a new culture, and increase their understanding of global citizenship.

On your trip, your Scouts or Girlguides can help teach in lessons, run sports sessions, or build new facilities at our partner schools. Whatever they choose, they’ll be helping to improve the quality of education that our partner schools provide.

We make organising an expedition as simple as possible, so you can focus on making a difference.

Travel Safely

We’ve organised many Scouts & Guides expeditions to Africa over the past 12 years, so you’ll be in good hands.

Create Global Citizens

Your young people will be taken out of their comfort zone before returning home more knowledgeable, understanding, and mature young adults.

Make an Impact

After safety, the most important part of your trip is the work you carry out at your host school, and this is central to how we plan your trip.

Build Long-Term Relationships

Long-term sustainable development doesn’t happen overnight. We can help lay the foundations to build a long-lasting relationship.
