Set out for new horizons with Adventure South Africa

Adventure South Africa

The College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences is teaming up with Adventure WV and the School of Public Health for a faculty led study abroad trip to South Africa.

During summer 2016 study abroad, students will trek across two thousand miles of South Africa, Swaziland and Lesotho lands. Students will explore, hike, climb, bike and lead service projects to support local initiatives while learning about the social, psychological and cultural aspects of physical activity and health in these diverse, developing nations. From the oldest game reserve in Africa to the top of the second highest waterfall in the world and from the Sani Cave paintings to the Otter Trail, Table Mountain and Robben Island, travelers will experience an in-depth exploration of the sites, sports, health issues, cultures, wildernesses and histories of Swaziland, Lesotho and South Africa.

Registration deadline is mid-January. Spaces are limited. The application is available on WVU’s Study Abroad website:
