Gap Africa Projects was inspired and created by one common passion…Africa.
The company was formed by Nicholas Christie who has a great passion for Africa, he has since created a small but knowledgeable team who share the same passion for Africa and Travel that he does. The focus of Gap Africa Projects comes from the team’s passion and we aim to provide meaningful and sustainable projects in Africa that will not only satisfy the needs of eager gap year and sabbatical travellers but also support and develop the projects themselves. Adventure is also our passion and we have carefully selected some of the best adventure tours and activities that the continent has to offer.
We pride ourselves on our service and want to put the personal interaction back into your pre and post departure experience. With Gap Africa you are not just another number! Our experienced and dedicated team are on hand to answer any questions you have at any stage of your booking and we hope that when you return you will share and spread our passion too!
Gap Africa Projects offers the opportunity to create your very own tailor made group educational expedition for your students – all of our expeditions are focused on personal development and education of young minds. Students are invited to experience amazing adventures and experiences that would not be possible anywhere else in the world! Our group educational expeditions have been specifically formulated to encourage growth and development for young people in all areas of their lives including adventure, cultures & international understanding, team work, leadership and responsibility.
“Learning outside the classroom should be at the heart of every school’s curriculum and ethos. Children can gain valuable learning experiences from going on cultural visits overseas, to teachers simply using their school grounds imaginatively. Educational visits can bring learning to life by deepening young people’s understanding of the environment, history and culture and improving their personal development.”
Mr Johnson – Outdoor Education
Advisors Panel (OEAP)
Our group educational expeditions are unlike any other out of classroom learning experience! Your students will have a truly life changing experience and learn more about themselves in a couple of weeks than they probably have done in as many years. Most depart as young people but all return as young adults.
Group educational expeditions are conducted by specialists in their field who are willing and able to pass on their knowledge and experience to your group. With the focus on developing the students, our leaders and tutors are also encouraged to let the them work as a team and make decisions in certain circumstances and situations.
