Overview

Discover the heart of this amazing country by combining days of meaningful service projects with journeys through South Africa's major cities and awe-inspiring wilderness and game parks.

Meaningful service projects, thrilling adventures, and an abundance of wildlife come together on our South Africa program to give you a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make a difference and reshape your worldview. Our goal will be to get in touch with the heart of this amazing country by working with conservation experts and marine ecologists to learn more about South Africa’s natural beauty, wildlife, and conservation practices. On this program we will discover everything South Africa has to offer while exploring the major cities, stunning country-side, and mind-blowing game parks.

For our service project we will work together to build a playground at a local school in one of the many villages dotting the area. The new playground will have a huge impact on the community and also show us what a difference we can make! Your efforts will be rewarded with the meaningful friendships and connections you’ll form with the locals along the way and the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel when you have completed the project.

In addition to our service work, we will have plenty of adventures, including learning to surf, spotting the Big Five on an exciting safari through a world-famous game park, ziplining, hiking, riding horses, whale watching, swimming with sharks, and more!

This was a amazing trip, I went the summer going into my sophomore year of high school. This trip offered so many fun and unique experiences that I will probably never get the chance to do again in my life. I chose Africa because I knew that I would not travel their with my family and I am so happy I did. My favorite part of the trip was the community service, it was amazing to play with the kids and see how our work impacted their lives, something as small as a playground made them so happy. Our tour guides in Africa were also so amazing, they were so funny and made the trip so memorable. I had so much fun on this trip that I have continued with TFT and did a trip to Peru this past summer, going into my junior year.

During the 2017 summer I was lucky enough to go on the Travel for Teens South Africa service trip. Going to South Africa has always been on my bucket list so being able to go as a teenager was an experience I will never forget. I must admit before the trip I was nervous on how everything would go. Both of my siblings had gone on a teen trip before but with different companies but my friends recommended Travel for Teens so we both decided to go on a trip. But once we were at the airport and meet everyone else on our trip my nerves immediately went away. The trip was organized and well planned which led to each kid having such a great summer. I highly recommend traveling with Travel For Teens if you are looking to have an amazing summer where not only will you travel somewhere amazing you also will make new friends from all over the world.
