3. On the itinerary for the students safaris, teachers and planners of educational tours must be emphatic that they want a students focused trip not just a safari that is labeled “school tour”.

If for example you are coming to Kenya – I must emphasize to teachers, schools & directors of educational tours, an itinerary of Masai Mara -> Nakuru ->> Tree hotel ->>> Samburu ->>>> Mt. Kenya ->>>>> Amboseli ->>>>>> Tsavo does not necessarily constitute an educational trip, especially if the tour is all rushed and it is just a sight seeing outing.

In no way are we saying that you bring the class timetable on the Kenya school academic trip, but the teacher must be careful that the itinerary for the school tour has quality learning time in the field backed up by the below: quality guides.

4. Safari Guides: The guides for your school trip in Kenya should be competent naturalists guides, who can identify wildlife, birds and plants but also able to interpret animal behavior are are conversant with the culture, politics of their country etc. In short, they must be natural teachers and not a "there-is-an-elephant" guide.

5. The student safari price – the teacher must read and understand the safari price inclusive thoroughly – check that all essentials are included. Be careful that your school does not pick the lowest safari price and fail to see that essential items e.g some meals, not included in the "cheap package".

For example, what would you do as the teacher accompanying the students with 20 hungry and angry students on safari without enough pocket money and the cost for extra meals in the nearest lodge is at least US$ 15 per meal?

6. Accommodation during the school tour: Grant it, students academic tours to Africa should not be in 5 star luxury safari camps (not unless the students can afford it!). But it is upon the teacher to confirm that lodges, camps on the safari itinerary are appropriate and student friendly. This is a crucial decision that should override the tour price.

At all times you must feel that your students will be safe and those no-no boundaries that are essential in students, school travel will not be crossed because of wrong choice of accommodation – you get the point?
