Gap year

A gap year working riding holiday program with lots of horse riding on the beach at Morgan Bay, on the unpopulated beaches of the South African Wild Coast and trail riding with Wildlife. On a working riding holiday work with trained horses in the saddle, training foals on the ground, and with the young horses, helping us back them and get them going under saddle. The working holiday program will also include assisting and joining in the fun filled adventures on offer at Cher – a – Don Lalapanzi.


Equestrian students

Equestrian students, pass on your equine knowledge by teaching, guiding and helping our riding clients on the out rides and an opportunity to transfer your skills to underprivileged local black children in our development program. During your working/gap holiday put your horse riding and equine knowledge into practice and gain experience with sick or injured horses and work with abused and rescued equines. Learn natural horse behaviour and "join up" techniques. Volunteer work with horses at Mkulu Kei horse trails and you could help lunging, halter training young horses, schooling in an outdoor arena, ride through game or horse ride on the beach out ride helping clients.

If you are a non-riding volunteer you can build relationships and share your various established skills with the clients and your piers at Cher – a – Don Lalapanzi Adventure Center. We welcome and utilize a diversity of skills whether they be more physical, problem solving, trouble shooting, listening, offering therapeutic advise, orienteering, organizing, socializing, encouraging, motivating, creativity, educating, communicating or if you’re just a nature freak all are welcome! 

Gap year adventure students can volunteer to help with school and children groups at the adventure centre with activities such as the obstacle course, abseiling, canoeing, raft building, rock climbing, hiking, orienteering, target shooting, volley ball, paintball and other eco adventure tourism experiences. This is a great way to gain work experience for the equestrian student or those interested in the tourism industry. On a gap year opportunity for a few months or a full year working with our horses or at our adventure center you will not only gain experience but help teach and guide.

Join us on a South African adventure from one week to a 90 day period, any volunteer may request to extend their stay or change their daily rate at any stage by giving us 48 hours notice.
