A Gap Year in Africa
Africa - the continent of extremes
The saying goes: 'to see Africa is to see the world with the lid off'. Home to dusty plains, unbelievable wildlife, and to a language spoken by nearly 170 million, it is a continent of extremes: extremely large, extremely dry, extremely poor, and extremely young. So young, in fact, that half the continent still hasn't reached their 25th birthday.
The mystique and intrigue of Africa deserves the spotlight it's currently getting, as it has become a gap year backpacker favourite once again, satisfying the traveller who's unafraid to have a grittier experience off the beaten track.
We have focused our gap year programme in Kenya for a full on beach and bush experience. However through Leap VIP - our resource for the independent traveller you can access our contacts through out eastern and southern Africa.
