College Student Trips

Our educational trips for college students embrace a “learn by doing” approach. While ticking the academic goals, students also learn the value of international travel as a tool to better understand the world and their place in it.

Through involvement with aboriginal culture, local professors and biologists, and community-based service projects, college students gain an appreciation for the connection between human activities and the environment.

Zoologist, Marine Biologist and Wildlife Expert Guides

You could say our guides are nerdy. But only if nerdy means intellectual, passionate and fiendishly concerned about details. Our guides are also fun and flexible, and we’ve chose them because they’re exactly the type of people you’d want as a travelling companion.

Our guides will cover the cerebral topics as well as the trivial with equal aplomb, discussing the mating habits of montoremes to beer-ordering tips in an outback pub. They will also be joined by specialists such as wildlife photographers, marine biologists, aboriginal elders, and ecotourism professors to give an added dimension to your trip.

 

“Our educational goals were met with the exceptional help of our guide Alan. He did a good job at explaining the flora and fauna of all areas visited. He related well with the students, was very knowledgeable and made the experience great. The course was named Ecology of Tropical Australia and the topics covered and places visited were appropriate to teach our students about the diversity of the Wet Tropics. Great trip and experience, eco-friendly all around!”
–Ely Klar, Columbus State University, USA – (May ’12)
