Outside of the classroom, GSP participants explore many of the amazing historical, cultural, and ecological sites that South Africa has to offer. Whether it's belaying in the Magaliesburg Mountains, visiting Nelson Mandela's house in Soweto, or searching for zebras and lions in the bush, there are many excursions that allow students to venture outside of ALA'scampus. These trips are spaced out over the course of the program to ensure that students have a balance of on-campus activities and off-campus exploration.
Each excursion is planned with safety in mind. Our security team is always involved and our educators are trained in approaches to risk management.
This year, GSP will be introducing Mini-Trips, optional add-on adventures that allow participants to explore Kruger National Park or the city of Cape Town at the end of their program. Both locations are internationally known tourist attractions. Stay tuned for more information about our Mini-Trips!
