Travel Through Africa on your Gap Year

Discover Africa

Travel through Africa on your gap year and discover the wonders of this amazing continent. There are some tried and tested routes that many gappers have adventured before you that are sure to both open your eyes and stay in your heart for years to come.

No matter if it’s North, South, East or West Africa that engages your interest you’re sure to find a route that will highlight a myriad of wonders. You can minimise the culture shock and lay back in the western-style city of Cape Town in South Africa before adventuring off to Victoria Falls or on safari through the Kruger National Park. For those after a wilder experience live within a homestay with the Maasai tribe people. Known as one of the great warriors and herders, their history dates back to the 17th century. Get your Indiana Jones on and adventure through the largest Canyon in Africa, Fish River Canyon in Namibia or the Tsodilo Hilla in Botswana, showcasing more than 4,000 ancient rock paintings dating back from more than 100,000 years ago!

Africa will always remain the ultimate gap year adventure and with each country so different to another there’s always a reason to travel through Africa on your gap year.
