What do voting, drinking, gambling, getting married and getting a tattoo all have in common? Aside from all being things that sound like a typical night out in Las Vegas (apart from the voting) they are all things that you have to wait until you’re 18 to enjoy (hmmm, again probably not including voting in this).

But if you’re 17 and are looking for adventure then you’ve come to the right place. Here at Real Gap Experience we have loads of trips that are suitable for 17 year olds ranging from looking out for the Big 5 in South Africa to looking after giant pandas in China.

This project was started because the owners of the elephants there could no longer look after them. It aims to care for the elephants and their mahouts who rely entirely on their elephants for their own survival. The project works to slowly and continuously improve the wellbeing of the elephants by educating the tourists who come to visit, the elephant keepers (mahouts) and the local community.
