Who we are

Join our Gap Year International Programme

Cost – € 6 000.00

Gap Year International is based in the town of Wilderness along South Africa’s beautiful Garden Route, one of the most picturesque areas in the world with its jagged coastline and diversity of lakes, rivers and indigenous forest at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountain Range.

At GYI, our priority is to guide individuals on a journey of self-improvement and discovery, with a strong focus on incorporating the development and implementation of Environmental and Social projects in Southern Africa into our programme –  changing our planet one step and one individual at a time.

Our programme is goal orientated and combines physical and mental challenges with adventure activities, designed to build character and enhance leadership qualities by helping individuals push themselves beyond their own pre-conceived personal boundaries.

If you have a sense of adventure and the desire to challenge yourself and grow while dedicating your time and effort towards improving the environment and helping the less fortunate, your time with us will be invaluable.

The programme runs over a 3 month period and includes accommodation and meals.
