What Sets Us Apart?

At Gap Year Kenya, finding the right gap year travel experience for you is key to what we do, so we spend time to understand your aspirations, fears and dreams to best match your expectations and provide you with a fulfilling journey on every level.

We can help both the team and the independent traveller through our team programmes. What we are currently experiencing is that many choose to start their gap year journey with a  programme which enables them to hit the ground running, travel off the backpacker trail and contribute to planet-protecting places.
