Mentor led expeditions

Your chance to teach media and science learners in the heart of wild Africa


Bring your students on the experiential learning expedition of a lifetime. We host university and college student groups on our wildlife and environmental media training programs. As their mentor, this offers you an opportunity to enrich your students’ learning. You can join your students free-of-charge as they explore and learn in the African wilderness.

Quick info

Expedition syllabus

The syllabus is customisable, and we are happy to work with you to ensure it is satisfactory to your course. We feel that the syllabus best provide environmental journalism, wildlife photography and wildlife videography aspects. If students would like to partake in underwater photography, then they are required to have SCUBA certification and their could be additional travel expenses as the underwater photography can take place in Mozambique or Durban. In Africa the daily work would focus on tutored practical training and experience. The content collected would then be taken back to the home university for post production under the mentors supervision.

Mentor led expeditions are can run for any duration that a mentor requests, but we suggest a minimum of 6 nights. Dates that we can arrange these programs include the months of:  March, April, May, August, September, October, November
