Celebrating 25 years of Volunteering & Adventure Travel

All DestinationsAll Activities
In the current climate caused by the Coronavius/COVID-19 pandemic, we are not recommending anything other than essential travel.
However, although none of us know when the virus will recede, we do know that day will come. Although normal service as we have known it may take a very long time to resume, we believe that the benefits of a meaningful, worthwhile gap year experience (as opposed to just hedonistic travel) will continue to be real.
So to lift your spirits, you can plan for the future – even if you don’t know when that will be.
Bearing that in mind, take a look at our programs, dream and plan for the future. And the good news is that you can reserve a place (at no cost whatsoever) on any of our programs and, at any time, roll forward to a later date also at no cost.

Not sure where you want to go or what you want to do?

A fantastic experience. Unforgettable and highly recommended…. being immersed in the culture and meeting lots of different people was amazing.

I loved meeting and integrating with the local community through the teaching, building, transport and playing football with the local children and adults.

At Africa & Asia Venture (AV) we believe in a different type of gap year travel.

Where there’s adventure and excitement but also where you find your second home.
Where you don’t just look at the scenery, you become part of the community.
It’s more than travel.
It’s a different way to see the world.
