Africa is an awe-inspiring destination that’s renowned for remarkably vast scenery and astonishing natural history. Whether it’s admiring Mt Kilimanjaro, travelling along The Nile, venturing into The Congo, experiencing the unique culture of African townships, or spotting the ‘Big Five’ on an overnight safari, students are sure to be amazed.

While South Africa is the most popular tour destination, many groups choose to venture to Namibia and Botswana, providing students with a stronger understanding of exactly how diverse this continent really is.

South African students have a high standard of sporting ability across the board. Rugby, football, cricket, netball, hockey and running are particularly popular for touring teams. When it comes to educational tours, music and choir tours are popular and the geography and geology tours are excellent.

Students travelling to Africa will often have the opportunity to be billeted with host families.
Brisbane Boys' College "The 2015 South Africa Inspection Trip demonstrated Student Horizons’ professionalism, organisation and local knowledge. From start to finish the trip ran smoothly and we were treated to some amazing highlights. I have returned convinced that not only is South Africa a safe destination, but one well worth visiting with a school group who will enjoy it and learn a lot at the same time.

The trip was an amazing experience. Konka, Kwa Maritane and Table Mountain were the highlights. Great crew made it all the more enjoyable."

The Scots School Albury "My inspection tour with Student Horizons was an outstanding experience. I was so impressed with the professionalism of the tour leaders and the quality of the programme. The tour was well planned and took us to a range of accommodation and potential experiences for our students. Most impressive of all was the flexibility of the company to tailor the experience to individual needs. This, along with the emphasis on safety gives me great confidence to engage with Student Horizons for future overseas tours for my students."

Safety is our number one priority
When students travel internationally, their adventurous spirit can sometimes lead them to risky situations. Without proper preventative measures in place, the results can be disastrous.

By having numerous risk prevention measures in place and extensive risk assessments completed on international ground handlers, we are happy to share the responsibility of keeping your students safe during their overseas school tour.
Development focused international school tours
Bring your students on a school trip that exposes them to experiences which develop their skills and interests in their chosen subject.

Whether you’re looking to organise international sports tours, subject specific educational tours or student volunteer expeditions, we can create customised itineraries based on your requirements.
Helping you fundraise more effectively
Fundraising can be a long and arduous process if you’re limited to sausage sizzles and car washes.
