About Gap Africa Projects

Gap Africa Projects was inspired by and founded on our common passion for Africa. Run by a small but knowledgeable team with a shared love of travel, our focus is to provide meaningful, sustainable and memorable experiences in Africa to those who want to explore this amazing continent.

Our projects and tours are designed to satisfy the needs of eager students, gap-year adventurers and sabbatical travellers whilst also supporting and developing the growth of the projects themselves. We pride ourselves on our management of your time in Africa, and personalisation is at the heart of what we do. Pre, post and during your time in Africa we are in touch to ensure that everything is going to plan and you don’t have to worry about anything that might distract you from your time away. Adventure is at the very heart of our business, and we have carefully selected our projects to ensure that you experience some of the best adventure tours and activities that Africa has to offer.

Read what our clients say about us!

Gap Africa Projects offers the opportunity to create your very own tailor made group educational expedition for your students – all of our expeditions are focused on personal development and education of young minds. Students are invited to experience amazing adventures and experiences that would not be possible anywhere else in the world! Our group educational expeditions have been specifically formulated to encourage growth and development for young people in all areas of their lives including adventure, cultures & international understanding, team work, leadership and responsibility.

“Learning outside the classroom should be at the heart of every school’s curriculum and ethos. Children can gain valuable learning experiences from going on cultural visits overseas, to teachers simply using their school grounds imaginatively. Educational visits can bring learning to life by deepening young people’s understanding of the environment, history and culture and improving their personal development.”

Mr Johnson – Outdoor Education
Advisors Panel (OEAP)

Our group educational expeditions are unlike any other out of classroom learning experience! Your students will have a truly life changing experience and learn more about themselves in a couple of weeks than they probably have done in as many years. Most depart as young people but all return as young adults.

Group educational expeditions are conducted by specialists in their field who are willing and able to pass on their knowledge and experience to your group. With the focus on developing the students, our leaders and tutors are also encouraged to let the them work as a team and make decisions in certain circumstances and situations.
