South Africa

With a variety of service programs only matched by the variety of landscapes, South Africa is a great service destination. From Durban to Soweto to Cape Town to Kuruman, at schools in both urban and rural settings, the visiting student’s eagerness, enthusiasm and energy does make a difference. As well, there are countless refurbishment projects for group homes such as orphanages and hospices. Just one opportunity is our Kuruman Service Program, designed for older students, which combines challenging work at rural crèches and family food distribution amongst the displaced population at the edge of the Kalahari.
The Kalahari trip was great and Craig was fantastic as always. Thanks for making the changes we requested. We’d like to do it again.PH and his students performed South Africa service in February, 2015

Many programs dovetail service projects with the fun and rewarding activities which provide understanding and appreciation of South Africa’s culture, history and contemporary issues.

And remember, each and every etr program can be customized to meet your specific requirements. Contact us today for more details.

Our Airline Partners


For over 24 years etr has enjoyed partnerships with the world’s leading airlines including British Airways, Thai Airways, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Singapore Airlines, LAN Airlines, Royal Jordanian, South African Airlines, Swiss International, Air France, Austrian and Cathay Pacific, amongst others. And as airline agents we can secure for you the lowest available fares, even from remote locations, and even from some of Europe’s budget airlines. What we often suggest to many of our out-of-Europe client schools is for them to get a fare from a local agent and we’ll get one from our airline contacts here…and then use the lowest one. As we do not mark up airfares, you benefit financially. Take advantage of our flight expertise…all at no cost to you.
