Our student travel itineraries incorporate community service volunteer work, lectures from experts in conservation, animal behavior and community development, visits to Ugandan schools, and plenty of opportunities for hands-on learning because Students in different countries need to be given an opportunity to understand the purposes and goals of many issues in life, some relating to Ugandan cultures and life styles. Our knowledge of the conditions on ground in Uganda enables us to plan and execute tours that are fascinating, safe and fun for students and teachers.
This is your chance to see Uganda from a new perspective and get to know people from a different culture.
