When RG's Head of Marketing Will headed to Ghana to visit our projects, he had a fantastic time! It's official: the kid's in Ghana are the nicest, ever!
After tough negotiating with BA staff to get an upgrade on my seat (extra leg room only before you get ahead of yourself) I found my seat only to be confronted by a Ghanaian lady holding a tiny child! Penance for being difficult I here you say - very possibly, very possibly.
However, 6.5 hours later I now have a new best friend in Accra and a...Read More
Here at Real Gap we love seeing your travel dreams come true, and last year Real Gapper Joel won a competition on Facebook that'd send him to South Africa to our Big 5 project! Check out how he got on with this daily diary...
Thinking about doing something incredible this year? Here at RG we love getting our teeth stuck into a new challenge and three of us have completed the Kilimanjaro climb.

For the last ten weeks, wildlife enthuasiast Nicky Lawrence has spent time at our Big 5 reserve in South Africa, participating on our Game Ranger Internship (with a splash of volunteering thrown in for good measure). Check out her blog post on her experience below!
Warning, the old cliché of "the best experience of my life" applies here! I spent 10 weeks at the game reserve in South Africa and it didn't disappoint.
The internship itself is hard work, I cannot lie about that, its a lot of...

RG's Charlie has literally been EVERYWHERE (well, almost!) and so he's always there to dish out great travel advice to our Real Gappers. One of the questions he always gets asked is about fundraising, so he's decided to put together some of his top ideas to help some of you guys out! (He says: You're welcome!).
