You will travel to South Africa for an amazing cultural experience. You will walk in the footsteps of important civil rights leaders such as Mahatma Gandhi and Nelson Mandela, explore the natural beauty of the Cape Peninsula, and immerse yourself in the rich and diverse South African culture.
You will explore the cities of Johannesburg and Cape Town, and experience nature in locations such as Kruger National Park, Table Mountain and Cape Point. This is an experience you won’t soon forget!
You will learn about South Africa’s developing economy and improving race relations as the nation comes out of the troubled history of Apartheid and becomes a major player on the global stage. You will see how many different cultures are woven together into one nation.
You will also learn how the country’s animal habitats are being protected, with visits to a safari camp and a penguin colony. Our excellent safari guides will teach students about the lives of African animals such as giraffes, elephants, lions, as well as the many animals, birds and plants found in Kruger National Park.
The study abroad experience aligns with NWTC Employability Skills; in particular, "value individual differences and abilities", and "demonstrate community and global accountability".
