travel in africa
a continent of riotous colour & cultural depth

If you have chosen to spend your gap year in Africa, or even if you just want to volunteer in Africa, you’ve come to the right place! The birthplace of all mankind, Africa is bewitching continent of intense beauty, epic landscapes and fascinating tribes. Charismatic wildlife roam vast valley plains and white sand beaches fringe tropical turquoise waters. Tribal communities practice ancient customs little changed since the dawn of time. Africa lies at the root of humanity and still has the ability to return life to its often beautiful basics. Nothing can prepare you for this inspiring destination, with its welcoming peoples and impressive wildlife. We offer you the chance to catch a glimpse of this boundless continent, with projects ranging from adventure travel in Africa to wildlife conservation in Tanzania, from marine conservation in Madagascar to sports coaching in Africa.

Let the spirit of Africa bewitch you on your gap year or career break. Immerse yourself in the welcoming and magical culture, become a part of the local community on a teaching project in Africa. Volunteering is a unique way to spend your time abroad, and where better to travel than Africa? You can choose from getting paid work in Africa to doing marine conservation in Africa, where you can learn to scuba dive, or simply get stuck in with community development in Africa. You cannot fully appreciate the splendour and vibrancy of this continent until you immerse yourself in its daily life – try our journalism projects in Africa, or medical volunteering in Africa, and there is even the opportunity for missionary work in Africa.

This is travel in Africa with a difference, and something you will never forget!
