South Africa Study Abroad Travel Course

Biology plans to offer South Africa study abroad travel course again in Summer, 2018. The course is BIOL 490 Biology of South African Wildlife. In addition to the students who enroll in the course, we usually have room for non-students who want to make the trip.

The itinerary will include Johannesburg, Kruger National Park, Swaziland, KwaZulu-Natal and the iSimangaliso Wetlands near St. Lucia on the Indian Ocean. You’ll have a chance to observe wild animals in their native habitat and to interact with people from a variety of cultures.
