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.
Where can you go on a Gap Year in Africa?
Volunteer in a rural community supporting local learning centres, community projects and schools, assisting with English, sports, art, drama, music, dance or whatever you are passionate about. Live in the village and build lasting friendships with your fellow travellers and the people you meet there. Immerse yourself in the Kenyan way of life and learn more about yourself and the world around you.
Go on a wildlife safari, visit an elephant orphanage and a giraffe sanctuary, do water sports or relax on the beautiful white sandy beaches.
Volunteer to teach English in a small village school and fully immerse yourself in the culture of Malawi, its traditions and way of life. You will make lasting friendships and add stand out work experience to your CV or Resume.
We run Gap Year programs that inspire, educate and challenge you to see the world differently. Volunteer and live in small rural communities in Uganda and change the prospects of the people you meet there by helping them to learn English, sports, music, drama or whatever you enjoy doing.
You will feel instantly welcome and will build lasting friendships during your time in this beautiful country. Many of our old AV’s go back to visit the friends they made year after year. Our program allows you to experience everything that is great about South Africa whilst keeping safe with our 24/7 in-country support team. Give something back by teaching young people English, drama, sports, music, dance or whatever you love to do.
Tanzania has so much to offer that the only challenge will be fitting it all in! Go on Safari, climb Mount Kilimanjaro or travel across Africa to explore further afield. You will live in a rural village in the mountains and be fully immersed in the traditional way of life. You will have the opportunity to make lifelong friends and inspire young minds by helping the local children with their English.
