College and School Expeditions

Inspiring college and school expeditions providing a challenging and rewarding learning experience for students aged 13-18.

Educational, meaningful and affordable school expeditions are hard to come by. Ideally, as a teacher, you’ll be looking for a trip that not only meets specific curriculum objectives but helps your students’ educational and personal development. Well, look no further…

Taken out of their comfort zones, your students will have a unique opportunity to learn and develop new skills that will support their schooling, and life after education. Furthermore, you could accompany them on this eye-opening and rewarding adventure.

Our aim is to make the entire experience for you as a group leader as simple and hassle-free as possible. Therefore, we take care of a lot of the admin, provide inclusive school expedition packages, and help your group through every step of their trip journey so that you feel supported from start to finish.

The experience starts long before the trip itself. Through fundraising the monies required to go on the trip, your students can gain invaluable life skills such as money management, independent decision-making, and planning. Following the experience, we are confident that they will return as more resilient, enterprising and rounded individuals, having had an insight into what it takes to become a global citizen.

Please explore our school expeditions, find out more and don’t hesitate to get in touch.

School Trips Abroad - Beyond Volunteering

Our trips proudly focus on volunteering and the developmental impact that can be made at our partner projects.

That said, we believe that after all your hard work volunteering, you deserve some relaxation time and the chance to explore the beauty and culture of your destination country. After all, you can’t go all the way to Africa and not experience the wonders that make it such an incredible continent to visit! That is why we have a number of fun and exciting optional activities for you to choose from, which you can elect to include as part of your trip. In Ghana, explore the history, meet some of the local wildlife or choose a beach retreat. In Kenya, explore the Rift Valley, go in search of the Big Five, and learn about the indigenous tribes. In Zanzibar, experience the magic of the bustling town or choose a relaxing beach excursion. We believe there is something for everyone, and we can’t wait for you to experience the magical activities on offer. Whatever you choose, this is your chance to unwind and take in the wonder and beauty of Africa.
