'South Africa' is synonymous with the word adventure. It is a big and unbelievably diverse country, stretching 2000km from the Limpopo in the north to Cape Agulhas in the south and nearly 1500km from Port Nolloth in the west to Durban in the east. This stunning diversity means that taking your gap year here is an amazing experience because of the countless opportunities it affords for anything from wine tasting to wildlife tracking, to surfing and climbing.
If you're looking to make a contribution while you travel in South Africa, we have many volunteering projects that will see you making a real difference by working with vital grass-roots projects and gaining a deeper understanding of this vibrant and beautiful country. Look out for i-to-i’s Big Giving logo for projects in which we donate a nominal sum for every booking!
