Our trademarked approach to learning—LEAP—gets students actively involved in what they're seeing and doing. This active engagement between students, the places they visit, and their tour directors allows students (and teachers) to absorb more and build their knowledge and social skills.

A chance to soak it all in Quality. Authenticity. It's what our teachers love!

We believe real immersion in a culture makes for a more authentic experience. We want you to eat like the natives do, so we take you to local restaurants. We want you to bunk down right in the center of the action, so we put you in centrally located hotels. All this means more local flavor, and more hours to enjoy it!

“This service learning tour was amazing. There is so much included and it was nonstop adventure. Safaris, volunteering at an underprivileged preschool, seeing penguins and baboons on the beach, Table Top Mountain, Nelson Mandela’s prison island, wonderful hotels, drum lessons, bike tour, beautiful Cape Town, great food, being at the southern most tip of Africa…Cape of Good Hope…amazing.”
—Nelson, California

“Our guide Jeremy was wonderful.  South Africa was an amazing country and experience.  The people were friendly and the weather was terrific. We did community service with Africa Impact in schools in Red Hill and a Safe House in Capetown. Those opportunities were life changing. The dinner and lunch we had at homes during our travels gave us a truly unique opportunity to interact with locals. “
—Nelson, California

“Words cannot describe how I feel about this tour. First of all, our Tour Director was amazing. The meals, the accommodations, all were top notch. The LEAP activities were great fun and the sites were simply breathtaking.”
