The Leap's Namibia gap year program is an excellent opportunity for students eager to explore Africa and help save the endangered rhino.
For four weeks, students will live "safari style" in a private reserve in Southern Namibia, home to the world's highest sand dunes and the eerie skeleton coast. There, they will help conservationists build a brand new National Park, which will serve as a sanctuary for Black Rhinos. They can also expect to serve in sustainable projects for the reserves community. Though this program will require lots of hard work and dedication, there will also be plenty of time for adrenaline paced adventures! In addition to helping with the conservation of leopards, gemsbok, and black rhinos, students will participate in mountain biking and trekking. Surely, this will be an incredibly fulfilling experience packed with education, sustainability, and adventure!
