I can only speak on behalf of the Maasai Mara aspect of the course. The material stimulating academically and offered a great introduction into the life of field-Biologist/researchers. The content was able to challenge my ideals and without giving too much away, was able to change my perspectives on areas of conservation that I thought I was immovable on. It was great to be immersed in such rich culture whilst sharing the experience with a range of international students with a range of different perspectives on the world. Kenya is a beautiful country with wonderful people offering an all-around enriching experience.

How can this program be improved?
I would like to see more time in the Maasai Mara as the area is so unique, multifaceted and complex to even begin to comprehend.

This was my first time visiting the African continent, and I can say that I am very pleased to have come as a learner than simply a tourist. The whole experience with EDU tours has given me a completely new perspective on a new culture and system of beliefs. I would thoroughly recommend this programme to anyone who wants an immersive and new learning journey, not just in terms of academia, but also personal development.

This was the first for our group to visit South Africa and it was amazing! Our students are from different disciplines exploring the relationship between culture and leadership and the agenda that Des had put together for us was full of useful activities. I especially enjoyed being able to go to different homes to share a meal with the locals, and our visit to Robben Island. I think our talk with Christo Brand and Lionel Davis could've been incorporated with the Robben Island visit, or maybe have either of the two be our specific tour guide on the island. Frans was such a splendid guide and driver - lots of knowledge about the area, very warm and welcoming to us, and very patient and flexible!
Our stay at the Team House was wonderful! All our meals were delicious and prepared on site for us. We had almost exclusive use of the house for our group with lots of space for debriefing, blogging and vlogging.

EduAfrica did a great job customizing our trip for us - if anything can be improved, it should start with us staying longer than a week!

Our group had a life changing experience. EDU Africa was absolutely brilliant. There was nothing that I would have done differently. We had amazing experiences in townships working with kids, great cultural conversations with Robbin island prison wardens, and prisoners. We got the educational experience that we come for, EDU Africa created a schedule that was action packed, with just the right amount of activities to keep us busy but not overwhelmed us. EDU Africa are very thoughtful and the accommodation at the Team House was first class. Meals at the Team House were delicious, prepared by there caring staff. Transportation was slick and our driver Franse was thoughtful and flexible, we never felt rushed. Furthermore, he was an amazing tour guide with a wealth of knowledge of the area..
I will certainly use EDU africa again --

How can this program be improved?
I have no way that the program can be improved -- only maybe stay longer in South Africa, our trip from the states was a week, we should have done 2 weeks

Our guide Prosper went above and beyond to make this an unforgettable adventure. Everywhere we went, he made sure we were able to talk with locals who had first-hand knowledge of the events and places they described. This was the most engaging and authentic study abroad trip that I have experienced.

Edutours handled all the details and were great with minor changes and meeting needs while on the trip. Their expertise made my job considerably easier.

How can this program be improved?
There were some events on the itinerary that need more explanation in advance, e.g. the culinary tour.
Yes, I recommend this program
