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.



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 have since expanded to all different corners of the world, including Europe, Asia and South America as part of our Global Adventure Projects.



After spending so much time travelling overseas, we have our fingers well and truly on the pulse of what makes for a good travel experience.  Much like a recipe, we know the ingredients that work – and likewise, can recognise the initial hurdles which may set you back when coordinating a trip of such scale.

That’s why we came together to do something about it – creating a whole host of travel programmes for young students, which are specifically structured to enrich their learning of different subjects, as well as make the planning process as simple as possible.

Impeccable customer service is at the forefront of everything we do, with our team working hand in hand with all students and school leaders to support them along each step of their travel journey.

Putting our years of travel experience to good use, our objective is to share our knowledge and expertise with others, so that they can make the most of their next adventure. As travellers ourselves, we believe that every journey should be experienced to the fullest – with not a moment wasted on trying to figure out the logistics.

Get in touch today to find out how we can help to build your trip of a lifetime.


Become a Partner

We are always looking for new partners in Africa, to help grow our fantastic range of projects. In particular, we are looking to create exciting new projects, so that your time in Africa can be as unique as possible.

As well as individual adventures, we also regularly organise group trips for schools, colleges and universities – looking to help their students to study, broaden their understanding of the world or get vocational training. It is our goal to become one of the premiere group suppliers in the UK.
