Why choose Conservation Travel Africa?

We pride ourselves on partnering with projects and organisations who are focused on providing long term solutions to fundamental problems.

Our focus is on bridging the gap between population growth and wildlife conservation and all our programmes, whether volunteer projects, adventure travel holidays or student travel experiences, focus on acheiving this mission.

We are responsible
Our projects were not set up for the gratification of overseas visitors, but to have a long term, positive impact on the wildlife and communities which they embrace and to give a positive, life-changing and learning experience for overseas travelers.

Our Responsible Travel Policy

Complete flexibility
We can provide student and school groups with tailor-made itineraries focused on service, conservation education and student growth. All our activities are co-ordinated by on-the-ground Conservation Travel Africa staff with the input and approval of your school. Our itineraries and curriculum are adaptable and can be designed to meet any school requirements or objectives.

World class locations
Our Group Travel Programmes are run in conjunction with international exo-tourism operators, professional safari guides, leading outdoor adventure training schools and team-building experts. Through our network of programme partners we have access to some of Africa’s most incredible wildlife areas, most experienced youth travel professionals and stunning camp facilities, built to have as little impact on the environment as possible.

Our groups are immersed in the sights, sounds and smells of Africa the minute they arrive - elephants trumpeting, crickets calling, the sound of the wind and the smell of the rain as it rolls across the plains.

Professional staff and leaders
Our groups are taught by professionally trained guides; experienced wildlife experts who prioritise education, the student experience and safety. Groups are lead by a team of staff from Ivy League graduates to conservation gurus who have hand-raised rhinos. We hold ourselves accountable to our students, local staff, the communities in which we work and the environment in which we operate.

A commitment to our projects
Conservation Travel Africa are dedicated to the communities and conservancies in which we work and this commitment extends beyond individual student programmes. Collaboration between community and conservancy leaders is on-going throughout the year to ensure the positive impact of our service projects continues after students have returned home.

Cultural exchange
All our School Travel experiences include an element of cultural exchange - to what degree is up to you. Students will learn new skills, experience homestay immersion, contribute to community service projects and go on cultural tours. Our programmes increase student understanding and empathy towards other cultures and communities and in turn, rural communities and in particular, schoolchildren, benefit from experiencing alternative cultures, views and experiences.

Experiential learning opportunities
Where better to learn than in the great outdoors? All our programmes give students the opportunity to acquire and apply knowledge, skills and experiences in immediate and relevant settings, plus give them the time and support to reflect on how they could apply their new skills to the challenges they face as they grow into young adults.

A positive impact
We design our programmes to ensure that every activity has a positive impact, whether it be on the student, the environment or local community. Students undertake meaningful activities where they can see the impact that their work will have long term.

A journey of discovery
Any overseas student travel experience is about the excitement of discovery - discovering new places, cultures and learning more about themselves and people around them. Where better than Africa to begin that journey - the land of vibrant colours, friendly smiles and stunning landscapes.
