Looking for some inspiration? You could head to Thailand for four weeks and try out the legendary Thailand Experience. With your group in tow, you’ll travel from the buzzin’ city of Bangkok to the epic beaches of Koh Phangan. Full Moon party, anyone? Maybe Africa is more ‘you’... you could become a game ranger on our Big 5 reserve in South Africa, or skip over to the other side of the Atlantic and travel across the States on an epic road trip.

Perhaps you want to build on your CV? You could make a difference abroad and volunteer at one of our projects. Volunteering is a great way to experience unique opportunities abroad, and see new cultures from the inside, helping a community in need. On the other hand you could earn some bucks and work abroad in Australia or New Zealand for a year or teach English in China.

There are so many choices, and the best bit is it’s all up to you! If you’re feeling a little lost on which trip is for you then download their brochure here to have a browse or get in touch with a travel expert via livechat on their website.
