Gap Year South Africa was the first time I ever traveled on my own and was an amazing experience. The program is set up so you feel comfortable and safe at all times. The owner is amazing and always there for you. As well, South Africa is a absolutely beautiful country. The simple daily train ride from Fish Hoek to Muzinberg was something I would look forward to everyday as it ran along the ocean offering a beautiful view. As well GYSA is the reason I fell in love with surfing. Since leaving I have traveled to Central America for a surf trip as well as moved to southern California. GYSA gave me the confidence to continue to travel and explore other cultures. GYSA was the best choice I could of made and will be something I remember for the rest of my life.
