Our Partners


Since 2013, Gap Africa Projects has been a proud supporter of wildlife charity, TESA (Thandi’s Endagered Species Association).

This amazing charity was founded by one of Gap Africa Projects’ former clients, Angie Goody, after several trips to South Africa to understand the plight of poaching faced on a daily basis. The work that Angie and TESA have done over the years, and their pure dedication to the preservation of endangered species, resounds with our own ethics and beliefs at Gap Africa Projects – therefore forming a natural partnership between us.

Travel Partners

To ensure that we provide you with a first class service, we have carefully and strategically picked travel partners who are industry leaders in their field. This not only allows us to offer an excellent service with our volunteering holidays, but it also gives you the assurance and peace of mind you deserve whilst travelling.




Gap Africa Projects is proud to be an ATOL (Air Travel Organisers Licence) bonded company. This means that in the unlikely event where we have to cease trading, you the customer will not lose money or be stranded abroad. The scheme is designed to reassure consumers that their money is safe and provide assistance in the event of a travel company failure.


Endsleigh Travel Insurance

Gap Africa Projects is working in partnership with Endsleigh to offer our travellers a policy which has been specifically designed to meet their requirements whilst on any of our gap year programs. We believe that safety and enjoyment are equally important when travelling with Gap Africa Projects. It is for this reason that we ask that you have adequate travel insurance in place before you travel with us.

The policies we have chosen to provide to our travellers through Endsleigh include the following benefits:

  • Cancellation or curtailment charges
  • Personal accident
  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Overseas legal expenses
  • Personal money, passport and documents
  • Baggage cover
  • Personal liability
  • Search & rescue (available on comprehensive policy)
  • Over 100 sports and activities covered as standard
  • Winter sports activity cover available

This is only a summary, you can read the full policy document here.

We recommend you take out your travel insurance at the time of booking your trip as you will then have cover for a pre-departure cancellation, should you become unable to travel for an insured reason.
