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.
