Good Life Expeditions

Good Life Expeditions is a travel agency that evolved out of MEDLIFE, an established NGO with a clear mission: to build a worldwide Movement empowering the poor in their fight for equal access to healthcare, education and a safe home. Based in Lima, Peru, the agency specializes in responsible travel to Latin America and Africa. Good Life Expeditions plans trips to the destinations where MEDLIFE works.
They design authentic, life-changing, and socially responsible experiences for travelers that also give back to the communities they visit. The best part: All the profits go toward supporting the MEDLIFE Movement. Good Life Expeditions’ goal is to bring attention to MEDLIFE’s work and give travelers a greater sense of connection to the world around them.

Good Life ExpeditionsMeaningful and Responsible Travel in Latin America & Africa

So, how did it all start? Volunteers with MEDLIFE kept asking to extend their trips to explore the beautiful countries they were visiting. Rather than outsourcing to other companies that potentially didn’t align with MEDLIFE’s values, we spotted an opportunity. MEDLIFE established an in-house responsible travel agency that creates authentic, meaningful travel experiences. And, as an added bonus, the agency generates much-needed, sustainable funding for MEDLIFE.

Good Life Expeditions is deeply rooted in MEDLIFE destinations. They create immersive experiences that offer a genuine insight into local customs and ordinary life. Whether you want to visit the Serengeti of Tanzania with a Maasai guide, discover Peruvian cuisine in Lima with a local chef, or research macaw breeding habits in the Amazon rainforest, they can organize the perfect itinerary for you. Travel with the confidence that you’re making a direct and positive contribution to the places and people you encounter by directly supporting MEDLIFE doing what you love – travel!

Not only was I able to participate in a week long Mobile Clinic, shadowing doctors of all types of specialties including pharmacy, dentistry, gynecology, and more, but I was also able to learn about the culture and visit incredible places.

One thing that I really loved about this trip was that MEDLIFE made sure that the volunteers got an understanding of the complexity of issues that lead to underprivileged people in communities outside of the main city

Whether it was basketball with the local kids, assisting the doctors, talking with families, building washrooms, holding babies, or spending time with the people who were on the SLT with me, this was an amazing opportunity that I would do over and over again.

Our family had the privilege of participating in multiple trips with Nick [founder] and his amazing staff. Their expertise made the trips unforgettable while instilling in my boys the fundamentals of good character: selflessness, compassion, and empathy.

As an aspiring physician, MEDLIFE motivated me to further continue my goal of becoming a doctor. In fact, I enjoyed the Tanzania Service Learning Trip so much that I decided to go on another trip to Cusco, Peru.
