If you are searching for a way to experience not only what Cape Town has to offer but also gaining work experience and being guided by fantastic mentors, I would strongly recommend Bridging Gaps.
I immediately felt at home when I was greeted by the Bridging Gaps mentors. They looked after me so well, from being settled in at the hostel, to being given a South African sim and phone to checking to see if I needed anything, and giving me advice on local restaurants/ bars and extra activities I could do.
The whole process before I came to Cape Town was coordinated very smoothly, the team at Bridging Gaps gave me a great choice of organisations to pick and choose from. The organisation they found for me was brilliant, The Underdog Project taught me so much more about animal therapy and the huge benefits their programme has to the kids and the dogs. Thanks to Bridging gaps I gained some valuable experience that should help me further in my career.
My only regret is that I wish I could have stayed longer!
