We offer a unique range of programmes in Africa. AfricaGap combines experiences with wildlife, exploration, conservation and communities in some of the best wildlife areas on the continent. Undertaking unique expeditions, camping in wilderness areas, volunteering in small local schools, learning about the country you are in through its young people, AfricaGap is designed for students aged between 17 and 23. This is an adult programme, led by people who love Africa. It is not a school trip, and each programme has been designed to fit in an amazing array of experiences for you
Whether you are on a gap year or holiday between studying, your time is precious! You may never get this amount of time again to explore and experience foreign countries and Africa is the most diverse and exciting continent. You will experience more here than anywhere else in the world and it may alter how you think about the world, in a good way.
Our aim is for our students to gain a passion for Africa, its people, and wildlife, to gain confidence and inspiration from their experience. To leave with skills including cooking, first aid, orienteering, leadership, entrepreneurial ideas, and a strong sense of self-worth and respect for people of all nations. Through cultural experience, Africa teaches humility and courage, and deep respect for the natural world. We believe Africa is the best place to spend your gap year and we look forward to welcoming you.
