Do you want to give yourself a break from work or studies and explore Africa? Are you looking for an educational, fun, life changing, and action filled sightseeing experience? Are you looking for an amazing trip for yourself, your family, or your friends? Travel with us to discover the heart of Africa. Nobody does it better than we do with our Adventure Packs set to augment your volunteering experience.

Come and join this exciting programme which will take you all around your country of interest. We can help you achieve your goals, not only as a tourist, but also as someone who really cares and loves changing lives. You are in the right place because this programme includes a host family, traditional drumming and dancing, and 5 day tours to see the wonders of Africa. You will spend one night in a typical African village where you will be summoned around a lantern to listen to tales while trying the local cuisine. Volunteer activities are also included to make your stay more meaningful.  Participants can volunteer in a variety of areas including: HIV/AIDS homes, schools, orphanages, law firms, media houses, construction sites and hospitals.

This programme is great when combined with the language and culture immersion programme.

The STAESA adventure programme is available for either two or three weeks.
