We are a specialised travel company which offers academic trips and volunteering opportunities for groups and individual travellers, in a number of locations worldwide – including full bonding with ATOL.

Our projects and tours are designed to satisfy the needs of eager students, gap-year adventurers and sabbatical travellers – whilst also supporting the growth of the projects themselves.

We pride ourselves on curating experiences which are personalised to the students’ needs and requirements – taking their education one step further and opening their eyes to once in a lifetime adventures.


Our Story

GAP Africa all began with a small group of people who, like our students, share a mutual passion for the world around us.

With its extraordinary wildlife and inspiring conservation initiatives, South Africa proved to be an incredible destination to introduce our very first travel programmes back in 2010 – experiences that are soon to expand to all different corners of the world, including Europe, Asia and South America as part of our Global Adventure Projects.

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 them work as a team and make decisions in certain circumstances and situations.
