Uganda Schools volunteer safaris

Overview

We work with you to tailor a trip to your budget and schedule and to the needs of your students and their learning objectives. We take the stress from the process so that you can enjoy the ride and the rewards of this adventure.

On the trip students will gain confidence and leadership skills, whilst interaction with students of the host country will enhance their understanding and awareness of differing cultures. They also learn an important lesson that on the whole, their lives are far more comfortable than those of their African counterparts, and they come to realise that people that are not so well off, deserve our compassion and support.

School Trip Presentations
An important aspect of our service is that we support schools in the lead up to a trip and during the decision making process. We visit the school to provide a slide presentation and Q & A session. This way you have a far better understanding of the planning process, as well as the assurance of having met our expert panel that you will have a fantastic trip with Sandfield Travel.

Contact us to help you arrange a life changing trip for you and your students.
