If travelling the world and giving the environment a helping hand as you do so sounds like your kind of thing, a conservation or wildlife programme is the perfect opportunity for you! Learn new skills and put yourself to the test as you make some new furry, feathered, scaly and shelled friends!

You could spend your days; assisting with the daily up-keep of nature reserves in Africa, helping in the research of endangered species in South America, taking elephants for a bath in Thailand or feeding baby kolas in Australia, all whilst aiding in the preservation of wildlife!  Whilst promoting harmony between wildlife and the community, you will also get to spy on some spectacular wildlife in their natural habitats.


Real Gap Experience offers over 30 conservation trips across five continents, so whether you’re into chilling with elephants in Asia, looking after big cats in Africa or heading out across Australia on horseback, there is an experience out there for you.
