A 12-Day Student Experience in Uganda

Category:

Description

Students should indeed have a good time during their summer irrespective of the fact that they cannot afford to pay as much as those working a full time job. So we decided to have a special program for them. We offer School, College and University student groups a unique opportunity for two cultures to interact and for the group to do some hands on work, Our itineraries provide the right mixture of adventure and education and make a logical choice especially towards Cultural Tourism which is strong in the student sector.

We expose students to new and stimulating situations which help to build confidence in young people, both now and for their future.
