In short, yes there is a sense of urgency.
Word has got out that we were one the few gap year companies sending travellers overseas during the pandemic, therefore we are seeing a huge rise in bookings. We are indeed COVID experts and are excited to help you with your travels, but don't dilly dally - time really is of the essence as places are filling fast.
So, roll call please for the following 'can go places'. These countries have passed the Leap covid-risk assessment. You are good to go.
The Leap heads to Colombia for an epic road trip, starting in the central wild canyons before heading north to the snow-capped peaks of the
Andes and down to
pristine Caribbean beaches - ending up in the hip, boho town of Cartegana.
Along the way you will trek through deep gorges and the lush jungle whilst contributing to remote communities and learning a spot of Spanish.
Venture out to Peru for an epic journey of adventure and community development before reaching the breath taking Machu Picchu. This program is set in the midst of the Sacred Valley and will enable you to reach hidden communities and landscapes, before haggling in markets and chilling in Cusco.
The program takes you on a road trip from the historic centre of Siem Reap down to the coast to help our partners at the Red Road Foundation - a dynamic team who run this life changing community project.
Over the course of this dynamic 4 week journey, you’ll live in the
backyard of the Eighth Wonder of the World, paddle in crystal clear seas
and walk with the largest mammals on Earth. But we guarantee it will be
the unbreakable spirit and inspiring optimism of Cambodia’s people,
that will stay with you, as you assist local NGO’s and social enterprise
projects, learning about the social issues and the complexity of
development whilst participating in cultural activities.
Venture out to Kenya to help a pioneering team protect the reefs and marine life. This program is set right on the edge of the Indian Ocean (literally - our house is right there) and involves a mix of marine and community projects interwoven with a safari, deep sea fishing, sundowners and the play ground of Watamu.
This Costa Rica road trip takes you on a dynamic journey starting in the iconic Antonio Manuel National Park, before heading north to work in a wildlife sanctuary and protecting the turtles. An awesome adventure, interwoven with surfing, yoga and zip wires - work hard, play hard is the vibe here.
Our 6 week program includes three weeks in Santa Teresa learning Spanish, surfing and helping with the plastic ocean projects before heading off to work with turtles and to experience an adrenaline filled cloud forest adventure week.
