The whole experience was incredible - the activities were challenging whilst being fun at the same time and it gives you the opportunity to meet some amazing new people who you are likely to stay friends with for a long time afterwards. I will miss everything about it a lot - the group, the range of activities and casually seeing wild animals walk about the reserve.
Spend ten weeks in South Africa to explore a game reserve, learn about animal welfare, visit Mozambique and make friends with a tame hippo!
This program departs three times a year and is fully immersive, taking in all the sights and experiences you'll find described on the South Africa 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. Just get in touch to arrange a return date and price to suit you.
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 Industry Standards for organising and managing adventurous activities outside the UK.
