Go. See. Engage.


As countries in Africa begin to open to travelers, we will add available trips to our 2021 schedule.  Contact us if you are interested in joining an Expedition or bringing a group to Africa!


An expedition connects people across cultures. We serve and engage alongside Young Life leaders in Africa.


A Young Life Expedition is unique – we connect people with Young Life staff in Africa and the Middle East to build relationships and have once in a lifetime experiences.  From serving alongside others at camp or in the community to checking an adventure off your bucket list, we believe a trip to Africa or the Middle East will grow our faith and understanding of one another across cultures and continents. It is a life changing experience.

Group Trips. Bring your friends and family to Africa!


Let us custom design a trip for your group – Young Life area, college group, friends, family or church group. Young Life Africa staff will host you from the time you arrive until you return to the airport for your flight home. The Expedition experience includes working alongside local ministry serving as work crew, visiting a day camp or club or walking around the neighborhood to engage with kids. Trips are typically 10-14 days and can include extra excursions like a safari or visits to other sites in Africa.

Prices vary based on location and length of trip.  Trips are fully customizable.
