We leverage our partner network of travel services, non-profit organizations, and local transportation companies to manage all aspects of travel, leaving you free to enjoy the experience to its utmost.

What’s NOT included: your passport, your travel insurance, your required vaccinations & anti-malaria medication, personal expenses, extra drinks, and tips.
