Africa is a continent of extreme beauty to travel in your year out – from the beautiful Cape of South Africa, up to tropical eco-paradises and plains. Choosing a gap year in Africa will open your eyes to this colourful continent of fascinating contrasts.
If you're looking for an experience in Africa that really makes a difference, i-to-i offers some unique and rewarding volunteer programs and teaching projects in ten African countries, ranging from helping local underprivileged communities in Kenya, to contributing to vital Africa wildlife conservation programs in South Africa.
At i-to-i, we believe that we can help Africa in so many more ways beyond giving aid. If you would like to teach English, work with wildlife, even learn to surf, then i-to-i can organise it all. Volunteering is our speciality!
