Your student travel to South Africa will be filled with unbelievable wildlife, scenic landscapes, and a cultural experience like none other. The warm relations we have established with the Klaserie Holiday Club enable you to work closely with the local youth. You will gain as much from this service learning experience as the young students you will be privileged to spend time with. Top that off with an unforgettable safari to see the Big 5 in Kruger National Park and this is two weeks sure to last a lifetime.
Hand in hand with the Mariposa DR Foundation, you will help empower girls in the Dominican Republic to rise out of generational poverty. Nestled on the north coast in the town of Cabarete, we volunteer along with teachers to provide educational, artistic, and athletic activities in the afternoons for girls ages 8 to 11. In the mornings, we work as a team on building and beautification projects (landscaping, painting and general maintenance) around the Mariposa Center. This service learning program is an opportunity for you to enjoy significant cross-cultural exchanges and to open up new horizons for the local community and for yourself.
Incredible wildlife, varied landscapes, warm people and thrilling adventures await you on this unforgettable student travel through South Africa. From working with the youth of South Africa, to unforgettable wildlife safaris viewing the Big 5 in Kruger National Park, this program combines service, wildlife education, cultural immersion, and adventure. It will truly be your experience of a lifetime.
