WELCOME

Into Africa 2006. This website chronicles the adventures of a group of British students as they prepared for, and then travelled to, Namibia, Botswana and Zambia.

Their school, Coopers’ Company & Coborn, has a long tradition of travelling abroad on trips which are best described as challenging, of benefit to the third world and of the kind that attempt to give something to those local communities.

In recent years expeditions have been organised to three different continents ~ Bolivia; Fiji (having spent some weeks beforehand sailing aboard the tallship Soren Larsen) and latterly to Namibia in 2004.

Supported by enthusiastic staff who foster a spirit of adventure (and give their time voluntarily) these trips provide a life changing experience for many students. Living and working as a team, before, during and after the expedition helps prepare them for the challenges of the real world. The sense of camaraderie they develop alongside the tangible achievements that their projects deliver makes for an unforgettable experience.

Their trip built on the friendships made on the 2004 expedition to Namibia. Journeying through three African countries, it concluded with a community project in Zambia.
