Namibia School Expeditions
REAL ADVENTURE * PASSION FOR LIFE * RESPECT * VALUES * FRIENDSHIP * BONDING * CHARITY THAT MAKES A GENIUNE DIFFERENCE * COMPASSION * RESPONSIBILITY * SELF ESTEEM * LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCES
Can all the above really happen on a school residential trip? The answer is an indisputably, YES. Unbounded is a Namibian based company that offers schools incredible life changing overland expeditions for its pupils. The company specialises in charity, real adventure and eye opening cultural expeditions. Through many activities and bush camping, the school expedition becomes an integral part of the wilderness.
The pupils will discover, explore, and fulfil their own personal potential. Bespoke itineraries are designed to allow them to develop their self-esteem. They do this as they learn about themselves whilst subjected to so many new experiences in a thoroughly novel and different environment. Students learn to live together and bond as a group in a manner that promotes responsibility, compassion and the development of new friendships. As they connect with themselves and each other they learn to value and respect each other through teamwork, camaraderie and shared responsibility. Unbounded utilise their passion and expertise, the people and the magical earth of Namibia to do this in a manner that is unrivalled by the normal experience of young people who come from more developed first world countries.
This is one expedition on which every school can safely send their pupils, even their miscreants are welcome - an expedition run by Unbounded, is premeditated to be an authentic life changing experience.
Unbounded school expeditions reveal Namibia as a destination where you can find all the landscapes from the whole of Africa in one country, from the elevated dunes of a desert, through a lonely and rough Skeleton Coast, outlandish mountains of Damara Land, amazing canyons of dried-up rivers in Koakoland, and wild game moving freely everywhere. It is just simply a remarkable and unforgettable exquisiteness.
Unbounded have also committed themselves to the development of living museums to preserve the culture of the ǃKharakhoenin in Gochas (Nama people), and the ancient people known as the Khoisan (Bushmen) – a community at Grashoek in Bushman land, around 140 km from Grootfontein.
School expeditions raise funds to facilitate the development of the two living museum projects. The initiative here is not to give the ethnic people ‘fish’ but to ‘teach them how to fish’.
School expeditions experience these cultures on a personal level as they live, play, eat and dance with these folks.
Students learn to live together and bond as a group in a manner that promotes responsibility, compassion and the development of new friendships. As they connect with themselves and each other they learn to value and respect each other through teamwork.
17 Day School Expedition
Namibia's past is as diverse as its landscapes. The first inhabitants were the San hunter-gatherers (Bushmen) who roamed the sunlit spaces more than a thousand years ago. They were followed by the Hottentots in the South and the Wambo and Herero from the north.
