Experience Africa,
Make Memories

Gap Year South Africa are the Leaders in Student Adventure Travel and Volunteering in Cape Town, South Africa.

With over 10 years of experience of changing lives, reaching 1000’s of people in South Africa through our Volunteering Projects, we are constantly adapting to the ever changing circumstances and New challenges Our Country faces.

South Africa has walked a Long Road to Freedom and has faced many hurdles along the way, but Our people take great Pride in where we are as a Country and how far we have come. We have witnessed the great impact that Volunteers have had and recognise the Value in the Youthful influence of International Students.

We have a long way yet to Journey as a Country but we will never loose heart or expectation for Our great Nation. And we Welcome You to Play an Important role in this Movement of Raising Up a Mighty Nation.

If you are Searching for the Ultimate African Travel Experience,

If you have a Taste for Culture,

If you have a Flare for Adventure,

And a Heart for Humanity,

Then we welcome you to explore our website and take a step forward into your African Journey of a lifetime.

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living” Nelson Mandela

Tailor Made Experiences

 We personalise each project so that both the communities and volunteers benefit from the experience. This promotes the Volunteers passion for the project they are focussing on, which ensures lives are impacted on a greater level.

Whether you already have a valuable skill you wish to practice and transfer onto others, or whether you are still figuring out exactly what your interests are, we will help you to find the perfect project, and discover your hidden abilities.

 Our Gap Year South Africa team will take time to get to know you and they will find the perfect project match for you’re interests, skills and abilities.

You really become part of the community, as opposed to other travel programs which sometimes feel like a glorified school trip.

GYSA I learned, is about more than just volunteering and helping the community around you, its about finding yourself, learning what you’re capable of doing, stepping out of your comfort zone.
Lacey Harper, Volunteering, 2014
