Every one of our gap programmes offers a real and authentic cultural experience. Living in camps alongside local people you will immerse yourself in rural village life.
We operate across 3 continents, in 6 countries and on over 100 community, wildlife and environmental projects at any one time. Our promise is to commit long term to being a part of the community. Every project we start, we finish, without compromise.
As a social enterprise we have philanthropic objectives at our heart. We tackle problems at the root cause within communities, working hand in hand on projects they want and need.
We work on projects that really matter – from developing infrastructure for schools, to establishing water supply for communities, to developing innovative and sustainable methods to combat human-wildlife conflict. Our projects are real and not a by-product of tourism.
This partnership with local communities has been our approach since 2002. Since then we have helped to change the lives of over 100,000 people. There is still a lot more to do and you can make the difference.
