Travel Fellowship Program

Travel Fellowship_Rustik Travel

The cornerstone of our philosophy of Sustainable Experiential Travel is our engagement with the local communities. We believe that travel is a powerful tool for an individual to embrace the culture, art and truly understand the people in relation to their place. By living with the locals, learning their language and indulging in their daily activities, a person is able to transform to respect and love another human in their own authentic way of living.
Through this travel fellowship, we wish to draw together people seeking to learn about diverse cultures, passionate about rural tourism and fascinated by indigenous communities.
