South Africa

Gap year South Africa

Diverse, exhilarating, spectacular, varied – South Africa is a gap year destination electric with possibility. It’s a vast, modern multicultural nation, in many ways as sophisticated and modern as any Western capital, but elsewhere as traditional as time itself. Then there’s the land itself: lush subtropics give way to deserts, savannah to scrubland, bushveldt to stunning coastlines. There’s extraordinary wildlife, including the world-renowned Kruger National Park. And there is, of course, the people and their history, the achievements of the post-apartheid regime, the struggles before that, and the ancient way of life beyond. If your interest lies in modern politics, South Africa should definitely be on your student travel shortlist.

Adventure travel South Africa

For those looking for adventure travel, South Africa is waiting. In Kruger National Park, the magical Big Five of rhino, leopard, buffalo, elephant and lion are yours for the watching. On the coast at Hermanus, you can dive with great white sharks (cages provided). Then there’s the local sport of kloofing – abseiling into canyons – and if you want to head off the beaten track, there are the wide open spaces of the Karoo.

Student travel South Africa

The sheer variety of South Africa makes it perfect for student travel, especially the hip urban centre of Cape Town, a modern and cosmopolitan world city that’s starting to spread its influence internationally, and that’s an exciting place to be. And there’s a wealth of history, from ancient tribal settlement to the recent troubles of apartheid, to explore, and for those after gentler pursuits, the winelands to tour.

Volunteer work South Africa

In South Africa, there’s hands-on volunteer work for those who want to give something back. You can work with the amazing African wildlife on conservation projects, or support valuable and rewarding work with disadvantaged children. It’s a great way to turn a memorable trip into an unforgettable experience.

South Africa Lion Cub Experience

Two weeks of living next to wild animals in your semi-luxury tent, you’ll work with lions, care for cubs, cheetahs, giraffes and hyenas, as well as loads of other species of wildlife, and then there’s the safari. When you work with lions, they may well get to recognise you, and you may have to explain to the giraffes and baby hyenas that at the end of the day, friends with claws or ridiculously long necks are not allowed through customs.
