On Foot Adventure Safari

The Charity, Student and Group Style Itinerary for 15 Day is a Challenging On Foot Adventures itinerary that is suitable for charity groups, students, sport groups, handicapped groups and other special group of interest. 
With the world of travel and adventure catering so well for discount student flights these days, exciting destinations are truly opening up for students. In Tanzania the exotic island of Zanzibar, the slopes of Mt. Kilimanjaro or the treeless plains of the Serengeti are the ideal base for itineraries for international students and groups. 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 for team building, cultural exchanges and community project work. We put together interesting and challenging itineraries to satisfy the mental and physical needs of globetrotting students within streamlined budgets. Cultural Tourism is strong in the student sector and lengthy stays in tribal situations can also be arranged. Our experience working with the logistics of group travel allow us to assist you to make all transitions smoothly. Safety is paramount in all activities and thus risk assessment and contingency planning are an integral part of our organization. Our trips offer an incredible opportunity for any student and offer unbelievable variety of experience. The memories will last for a lifetime!
