Cultural and Historical Tour

There will be lectures at leading universities, cultural immersion homestays with local families, excursions, and field experiences that you cannot get in any other place. You will also get an opportunity to visit Zimbabwe’s tourist attractions, as they are all a part of the country’s history. The tour may be designed according to the learning objectives and customised as such. The length of stay may be from 14 to 21 days and students have the option to extend their stay beyond the group tour for a further 2-6 weeks.

The cultural and historical study abroad tour takes groups to sites of historical, political and cultural importance in Zimbabwe and ultimately Africa. These have played a major role in the history, and politics of the country. Most importantly, these highlight the social context of life in Southern Africa. For groups that want to deepen & sharpen their intellectual and cultural understanding of Africa, Zimbabwe offers the best possible opportunity. Unique migration patterns, native customs, natural landscapes, and pristine wildlife make the experience surpass any other.
