I have absolutely loved my time with the Leap. The staff could not have been more welcoming and couldn’t do for us. Thank you so much for making time so amazing!
Spend ten weeks in Tanzania and take care of local children, explore vast lakes, renovate remote school buildings, plant trees, track turtles and live alongside some of the world’s most remote communities.
This program departs four times a year and is fully immersive, taking in all the sights and experiences you'll find described on the Tanzania page with plenty of downtime for you to explore the country as you please.
Whilst we recommend the full ten weeks for a complete experience, if you want to join this program in January, April or September and fly home after six weeks (or seven, or eight...), that's no problem. Also, the July departure is for 6 weeks max: 3 weeks Arusha, 3 weeks Dar. Just get in touch to arrange chat through your options.
Over the last 12 years we've taken thousands of young people overseas to experience the trip of a lifetime.
That success has drawn industry-wide recognition. We're an accredited member of the Year Out Group, an association designed to promote the benefits of well-structured gap year programs, and part of the equivalent organisation in the USA - the American Gap Association.
We're big on safety too: every one of our programs is carefully researched, audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard for organising and managing adventurous activities outside the UK (BS 8848).
