School Expeditions in South Africa

Taking part in an educational trip to Africa is an experience like no other. You will encounter amazingly diverse wildlife and explore the landscapes unique to the African continent.

Africa is a great place to volunteer and make an impact during your trip. Be it wildlife or community volunteering, your students will be able to really see the results of their work, educating impoverished children or protecting local wildlife. All of Gapforce’s projects are thoroughly long-term and sustainable, so you can be sure that the days your group puts in are part of a broader vision and programme of support.

Volunteering in Africa will give your group the perfect opportunity to learn about this amazing continent and the culture lived day-to-day by its people.

Remember, all our school expeditions to Africa are created bespoke so you’re not restricted by what you see here. If you’re undecided about where to go, just call us, we love sharing ideas.

  • What an outstanding ten days we had in Tanzania. From the moment we arrived in Arusha to the moment we left everything was exceptionally well planned and executed. The organisation put into place by Gapforce was exemplary; every activity was well thought out. Having two Gapforce staff members on the ground in Tanzania was superb because they were familiar with local customs and the language. Furthermore, they were more than willing to change arrangements at the last minute and accommodate our requests. The staff in the London office were a dream to deal with – always approachable, easy to communicate with and highly accommodating. The activities organised for us were of a wide range and suited the needs and requests of everyone. From walking transects, to the Maasai cultural experience, visiting the orphanage and the three days of safaris, everything was meticulously planned. I would certainly recommend Gapforce to anyone planning to visit beautiful Tanzania.
