    Quest Overseas is dedicated to making a significant impact on small, disadvantaged communities and animal welfare in South America & Africa, as well as giving young people the exhilarating and hugely rewarding opportunity to contribute towards making this meaningful change possible. Amazing chances to travel too!

    We are a Gap Year specialist organisation running 3 month Gap Year expeditions combining volunteer work and an expedition through Africa or South America, with the option of a language phase for South America teams. Quest Overseas also organise shorter summer adventures for 4-6 weeks that concentrate on either project work or an expedition, or a little of both. Team sizes are anything up to 16 students and are made up of 17 - 25 year olds that are usually on a Gap Year after school or are taking a summer break during university.

    Current programs include: 

    Bolivia Gap Year- Join our gap year team in Bolivia and work on one of the most unique wildlife conservation projects on the planet. Spend a month working in the Inti Wara Yassi wild animal refuges, followed by an expedition through Bolivia and Peru.

    Villa Maria Gap Year- Join our team in the shanty town of Villa Maria in Lima, Peru, giving thousands of children a summer holiday they will never forget. Then take on the Andes and Amazon in an adrenaline filled expedition through Peru and Bolivia.

    Andean Expedition-- 6 weeks of adventure and challenge through Peru and Bolivia, taking on some of the most stunning areas of South America.
