Below is just a snippet of the travel opportunities we have available for you! Take a browse, see what takes your fancy and head over to the website to discover all the insanely good options.



Who hasn’t dreamt about travelling Thailand?! We still blame the young Leonardo DiCaprio for starring in The Beach (yep, those backdrops are 100% legit!). Start off in buzzing Bangkok where you can explore this urban yet beautiful capital city. Heading north it’s time to discover the stunning Erawan National Park with natural waterfalls, tropical jungle and spectacular wildlife. Finish your adventure with a taste of true paradise on the mesmeric and euphoric southern islands.



Travel from north to south across this incredibly diverse country. It’s no wonder the backpacking scene in Vietnam is growing so prolifically, with Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh you’ll fall in love with the vibrant Vietnamese culture and fascinating history. Ha Long Bay provides one of the most picturesque landscapes in Asia with emerald green waters and towering limestone islands. When your heart is content with exploring you can grab some much deserved chill time on the Mui Ne beaches.  



Want to backpack a country which is truly unique? Cambodia is a one off with its rich and somewhat troubled history combining with unmissable sites driving feelings of enchantment and spirituality. The world heritage site of Angkor Wat is literally unmissable and often referred to as the eighth wonder of the world. Siem Reap supports these remarkable Angkor Temples providing a great place for backpackers to set-up base and have some fun. Cambodia’s coastline does not disappoint, filled with amazing beaches such as Sihanoukville, a great place to chill, go diving and live it up.



T.I.A (this is Africa), and what a beaut it is; amazingly diverse wildlife, unspoilt wilderness and scenery that will take your breath away. We’ve got some great wildlife programmes across Africa such as our South Africa Big 5 trip and Namibia Wildlife Sanctuary Volunteering shown in the video above. On this trip you’ll get to hang out with animals such as cheetahs, leopards, lions whilst working in a wildlife sanctuary, activities include feeding, exercising and assisting with the rehabilitation of the animals. Set in a private reserve you’ll have views over distant mountain ranges and rugged natural savannahs. 


Costa Rica

With 800 miles of coastline, Costa Rica is a beach paradise, along with the highest density of wildlife in the world to boast about too! As a leading country in ecotourism we are proud to present our Costa Rica Experience. On this four week adventure you’ll get to volunteer on a Sea Turtle conservation project, surf the Pacific coast, trek jungles, go white water rafting on a class 2-3 rapid and even visit an active volcano! This one’s for the adrenaline junkies (plus those baby turtles are way too cute!).


Round The World

Why not do it all in one adventure?! Where have you always wanted to go… how does China, Thailand, Cambodia, Australia, New Zealand and road tripping in the USA sound?!
