A truly memorable emersion experience.

"Thank you SASTS for making this experience even better than I had expected. I wanted an immersion experience. I was looking to truly become a member of the community that I was volunteering in. You set me up with the most amazing host family who took me in as one of their family and taught me to live as a South African. Nuri stopped in every other week and checked in on me at my project to make sure that things were going smoothly and would coach me when they were not. On the weekends, Howard and Simba were amazing at advising me on the best ways to see this beautiful country and even helping me do it in the most economical ways possible. I can honestly say that SASTS under-promised and over-delivered. Thank you."
