STUDENT EXPERIENCE
My time in South Africa is the best experience I have ever had. I went way out of my comfort zone and got to experience and learn so much about the culture! I never in a million years thought I would eat a sheep's cheek (a Xhosa tradition, not just curiosity).... This program offers so many amazing opportunities and is coordinated so well! South Africa has been (as cheesy as it sounds) a life changing experience! I don't want to leave but it just means that I get to come back again! -Ellen

It was wonderful being able to learn about a new culture and experience it firsthand. – Taylor, Summer 2012

EXPLORE SOUTH AFRICA!
After the four-week program in South Africa, Stellenbosch offers students the  option to participate in the six-day Garden Route Tour.  The Garden Route Tour will travel the coast of the Western Cape. For more information,  see the 2014  Garden Route Itinerary.
