Africa & The Middle East

We still don’t have a dedicated set of trip leaders in these regions, but wanted to provide students with some recommended itineraries and allow them to coordinate timing, in case they’re interested in going. See the #world-tour Slack channel for more information and to connect with other folks who might be interested in trips to Africa and the Middle East.


South Africa

In the past few years, South Africa has raced to the top of many travelers' must-visit lists. Filled with stunning vistas, cool cities, and all that famous African wildlife, the country really does have it all.

Add to this a strong US dollar and weaker South African rand, and it's never been a better time to travel to South Africa.
