Travel in Africa

Travel in Africa - a continent of riotous colour and 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 an overwhelming continent of beauty and scope. Red sunrises over the dunes of the Sahara give way to craters of rolling savannah; gold sanded beaches to green highlands. Lush jungle, tropical coastline, salt plains and diverse cities, 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 place, with its friendly peoples and vast range of wildlife. We offer the chance to catch a glimpse of this immeasurable continent, with projects ranging from adventure travel in Africa to , from marine conservation in Madagascar to sports coaching in Africa.

Allow yourself to be taken over by the spirit of Africa 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 in Africa, or simply get stuck in with community development in Africa. The colour and vibrancy of this continent is not fully appreciated until you are a part of its way of 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.
