Gap Year Programs in Africa

Why Take a Gap Year in Africa

Taking part in a gap year program in Africa is an experience like no other. You will encounter amazingly diverse wildlife and explore landscapes completely unique to the continent.

All of our Africa programmes include free time to travel with new friends and explore the diversity of scenery and opportunities for adventure that Africa offers.


Volunteer Projects in Africa

Africa is a great place to volunteer and make an impact during your trip. Be it medical volunteering or teaching, you will really see the impact of your work, helping under-resourced healthcare facilities or educating impoverished children.

All of Gapforce’s projects are thoroughly long-term and sustainable, so you can be sure that the time you put in is part of a broader vision and programme of support. Volunteering in Africa will give you the perfect opportunity to learn about this amazing continent and the cultures its people live day-to-day.
