Visit a rainforest tribe on a Biology school trip

Date Posted: 27/09/2013

School trip organisers, The School Adventure Company has added a new Amazon itinerary to its current portfolio. The Biology School Trip to Ecuador offers pupils the chance to journey into the rainforest for a life-changing experience with the indigenous Huaorani tribe.

As well as learning about the Amazon's plants, birdlife and wildlife from their local guides, pupils stay in an eco-lodge, are taught traditional hunting methods, and take a 'toxic tour' to learn about the Huaorani tribe's fight against oil exploration.

Itineraries offered by the company include its Iceland School Trip, which has a focus on Geography, and its Morocco School Trip, which supports Religious Studies and Geography, and encourages language skills while students bargain for goods in the souks.

Tours are tailored to meet each school's specific requirements and to support classroom learning in subjects including Art, the Classics, Geography, History, Modern Foreign Languages, Religious Studies and Science.

All of The School Adventure Company's tours are accompanied throughout by an English speaking local school group leader and adhere to health and safety standards, with full risk assessment for all elements of the trip including accommodation, vehicles and equipment. 

Free teacher places are available and teacher familiarisation trips can be arranged to either Turkey or Morocco from £199 per person, which is fully refundable if the school makes a booking.
