Discover Corps offers two trip types — Nature & Wildlife Adventures and Cultural Explorations — all with a unique purpose that benefits the communities we visit. You’ll see the sights, but also dive beneath the surface, returning home inspired to become an advocate for our planet’s natural wonders, cultural treasures, and local communities.
Because you want more from your travel experiences. Embrace the spirit of the discovery by taking a trip based in purposeful projects, whether that be hands-on cultural immersion or wildlife interaction, and experience breathtaking sights infused with meaningful thrill. Even well-known destinations take on new dimensions when visited as part of a vacation with purpose.
Our team of local expert guides gives you unparalleled access in different ways on two different trip types: Nature & Wildlife Adventures and Cultural Explorations. Since our average group size is 8-10 travelers, you can have experiences that big tours can’t, and because you’re traveling with us, we can ensure you’ll have a safe and seamless travel experience with a purpose that benefits the communities you’ll visit.

Croatia: Dolphins & Islands Expedition
I wanted to see as much of Croatia as possible and do something different. I truly felt like my contributions to the Blue World Institute made an impact on the small local community of Losinj and a big impact to the dolphin population. While this was the highlight for the family, the extension to Dubrovnik was also absolutely amazing. The beauty we witnessed throughout the trip, both in the unexplored Northern Islands and then the more popular Dalmatian Coast, was breathtaking and something I feel incredibly privileged to have seen. Truly a trip we will never forget!
Cuba - Building Bridges
What makes international travel a beautiful experience for us is the opportunity to learn about the culture firsthand through its people, food, and music. Discover Corps designed this trip to Cuba with all of that in mind. We developed genuine connections with people we would have never had a chance to interact with otherwise, and the casa particular was an incredible opportunity to hone our Spanish and, for my 8-year-old daughter, to be immersed in the language for a week. Our tour guide gave us chances to make the trip our own during free-time and showed us the local perspective day after day.
South Africa - Wildlife Volunteer Experience
What really drew me to this trip was the ability to take my children on vacation and watch them fall in love with nature. Each day, we joined our guide on a mission to track animals that we had only seen in movies. Watching my kids stare in awe as they watched elephants and rhinos play in the wild was truly priceless. Since we’ve been home, they cannot stop talking about everything they learned in South Africa.
