Best Gap Years in Africa

We are really sorry to tell you BUT we have put our Tanzania gap year program on hold at the moment. The good news is that we have two alternative destinations in Africa, which are exceptional and really deliver in terms of giving you an intrepid, off grid, volunteering experience....so drum roll please for Namibia and Madagascar.

Namibia is fantastic for the ultimate bush experience - where you are helping create a national park for the endangered rhino and Madagascar offers the best tropical islands, whale sharks and community development. They can also be combined to give you the best beach and bush combination. Just saying.


This a hidden gem and we know not on everyone's immediate bucket list BUT it should be...We have supported this huge conservation initiative for 4 years now and we have made great progress in creating a new reserve which will ultimately be a home to the endangered rhino.

But of course its not all work and no play - lots of adventure included to keep everyone of their toes.

For environmental conservation - there is nothing better In Africa.

Here we are based on the islands off the mainland of Madagascar where we are helping a local NGO preserve the delicate and unique eco-systems on the islands whilst engaging in community development.

Our program involves Robinson Crusoe style living on various tropical islands helping teach English and conservation issues, building schools and clinics and preserving the forest and marine life.
