Think Outside the Tour with Road Scholar
What’s Road Scholar? We’re a not-for-profit educational travel organization that’s offered more than 4 million participants outstanding learning adventures since we were founded in 1975.
Top instructors, comfortable accommodations, great value and that special Road Scholar spirit are what make our educational travel programs the best experiences and value you’ll find.
Check out our list of African American-inspired adventures here, including a special voyage in West Africa, from the Senegalese capital of Dakar along the Saloun and Gambia Rivers. Discover the vibrant markets and seaside colonial buildings of Dakar and investigate the legacies of the slave trade on Gorée Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Then the Gambia River leads you to lush, wildlife-rich nature reserves and the riverside towns and cities of the country where Kunta Kinte was born. Visit our website to get more details.
You can also learn about our $5,000 travel scholarship, the Asa Grant Hilliard III Road Scholar Award for Lifelong Learning.
