Different Educational Tours

In 2001 Embrace South Africa Tours first opened our doors to cultural- and educational tours to South Africa. From a humble beginning we have grown to a well-established company with more than 17 years of experience in the business with customers from different parts of the world.

We continue to offer innovative programs to new and favorite destinations in South Africa to help travelers delve beyond the surface of these treasured places to explore the hidden riches unique to each.

We designed our tours in such a way that groups will achieve the following outcomes:

  • engage with the authentic culture of the different people groups in South Africa,
  • explore the beauty and diversity of the breath-taking scenery and wildlife, landscapes, mountains, beaches and wild-life
  • get a hands-on experience of community-based service projects and daily life in these communities
  • engage in personal conversations with different people; either just meet and greet or listen to different opinions,
  • enhance your own critical thinking skills,
  • get involved in a building project or community program if that is the goal of your trip
  • apply skills learned inside the classroom in a different environment (for high school and college students).

Embrace South Africa Tours wants to INSPIRE you to become a life-long learner and traveler

Sometimes you need an overseas context to cross the line that divides the classroom from the outside world. This is when study abroad is at its best—comfort-zone-pushing, exciting, and transformative.

We work every day with university faculty and study abroad offices to create each program – at any time throughout the year, and in any locale in South Africa. Since we are in the business for more than 16 years we are convinced that short-term programs offer great educational value. But they also require tremendous time and energy to organize.

We are able and more than willing to assist you. With our extensive networking partners in SA and longstanding experience delivering programs, you can make sure you and your students have an exceptional study abroad experience.

We will assist you without stretching your energy, time and overburdened workload any further. You deliver your vision, we make sure it transforms into reality!

Tours for High School students

We offer exciting eight day and seven night educational- and service tours for high school students. Do you have a sense of traveling to Africa to enhance your groups understanding of service or learning? Then we can help you to facilitate the right experience.

We provide diverse opportunities that will grow an individual student's character, expand their perspective and worldview, and challenge them to greater leadership as they develop a greater understanding of the world.
