About Us


Travel Learners LLC offers professional tour guidance to southern Africa that includes service learning opportunities as part of each itinerary. We find that trips including volunteerism are memorable and are deeply enriching. The fulfillment gained from giving and sharing with others less fortunate promotes cultural awareness and profound learning in folks of all ages. Travel Learners organizes humanitarian vacations that include leisure time, wild life viewing, and cultural enjoyment within an historical context.

Our Story


Travel Learners LLC was founded out of a need for Universities and Colleges to offer international service learning opportunities to students to gain credit towards their degrees. As a third party agent, Travel Learners takes the responsibility off the shoulders of instructors and the liability off the institution.


  • We have now expanded opportunities to small groups of travelers who would like their adventure tailored to their specific interest.
  • Our trips are based around learning opportunities in fields such as botany, arts and culture, public health, history, wildlife, agriculture, and environment.
  •  We encourage volunteerism through our links with self -help non- profit organizations in southern Africa whose focus is on working with impoverished communities and vulnerable children. This brings you in direct contact with host communities, makes your trip unique and ultimately an experience of a lifetime!
  • Your trip can be interspersed with tours to experience wildlife, natural wonders, museums, galleries, markets and some of the great flavors of Southern African cooking. Just let us know what you would like and we can arrange it for you.
  • Experience the warmth of a South African handshake from friends for a life time.
