Our school has only been open for two and a half year. This year we decided to have our first ever school tour, an exciting but nerve-wracking experience. Our tour took place from 22 September 2018 to 26 September 2018. We visited Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces of South Africa. Touring from the Panoramic Route, Blyde River Canyon to Hazyview and the famous Kruger National Park.

SES, Apple Valley in Minnesota, USA 2018

Posted on Sep 3rd, 2018 in Reviews

I have thought about our amazing trip to South Africa many times and have enjoyed telling anyone who will listen about the life-changing experience it was.  I want to thank Julie for the incredible attention to detail she provided, which allowed the students and faculty on the trip to relax and really engage in the experience.  You had everything worked out and accounted for (transportation, accommodations, food, fees, cash, gratuity, entrance fees, scheduling, potential safety hazards and the list goes on!!). Not having to worry about all those moving pieces was such a gift as we had our adventure on the other side of the world.

Wyoming Seminary – Educational Experience

Posted on Oct 31st, 2017 in Reviews

All Africa Tours is a family organization that is more than just a tour, it is an educational experience. Julie and Scott are incredibly knowledgeable of South African history and the diverse ecosystems that are within Kruger National Park. Our students left with a deeper understanding of the need for conservation and a hunger for more knowledge.

This was the best tour we have been on in our careers as teachers. Everything was organised so precisely and thoughtfully by All Africa Tours and we would love to do this tour again, even with our own family and friends. This was an uplifting experience that we will never forget.

Posted on Mar 14th, 2017 in Reviews

Working with Julie and All Africa Tours has been such a positive experience. The itinerary was not only so diverse and captivating, but it was also something that Julie made clear from the beginning was flexible. She truly included us as stakeholders every step of the way, to ensure that our students had the best possible experience. Her attention to detail, her genuine caring for our children, and her sense of humour (along with fabulous stories) were so appreciated by each and every one of us.

Americans travelling to Africa

Posted on Mar 14th, 2017 in Blog

From exploring the souks of Morocco to encountering an incredible array of wildlife on safari in Namibia or enjoying the white sand and turquoise waters of the Seychelles, Africa has something for everyone. Luckily, USA passport holders can travel to many African nations either without a visa, or in some cases can simply purchase a visa on arrival. However, the visa rules vary from country to country and can be complex.

A massive “thank you” for organising an absolutely wonderful tour for the young ladies and staff of Luckley House School. I could not have asked for more both in terms of the organisation beforehand and the quality of leadership shown throughout. I sincerely hope students of the school will have the opportunity to tour South Africa with you again soon.

Questioning the new visa laws for children travelling to South Africa

Posted on Jul 18th, 2015 in Blog

A school group coming to South Africa met with disaster when they arrived at Heathrow on Thursday, 16 July 2015. Thirteen of the children were refused permission to fly to South Africa as they had a document without a solicitor’s stamp. This created anxiety for the entire group as it meant that 2 teachers needed to stay behind with that group whilst the rest continued on their journey to South Africa with mixed emotions. What a dampener for all!
