About Us

 

Launched on June 30th, 2014, Visit Africa is an interactive and collaborative digital platform dedicated to tourism and culture in Africa. The platform enables travelers to publish their travel journals, citizens talk about their lives and introduce the public to their village, city or country. In short, everyone is invited to share their getaway tips! Visit Africa covers the continent from East to West and from North to South, thanks to the narratives of all those who are passionate about Africa.

Purpose of Visit Africa

 

Today, Africa is mainly represented by non-Africans via various forms of media. They usually talk about a sordid continent where only famine, wars, poverty and other scourges happen. After numerous trips to different countries across Africa, one realizes that the continent has multiple sides: beautiful landscapes, vibrant cities, warm and mostly welcoming people, a myriad of opportunities and important challenges.

 

It thus became obvious to create Visit Africa in order to depict a more objective view of the continent, by rethinking its image far from the usual stereotypes and without denying its problems. Visit Africa is all about putting forth Africa’s assets and opportunities.

Concept of Visit Africa

 

Visit Africa publishes stories of a community of travelers who have visited the continent and who share their trips, their favorite places/things and their encounters. Moreover, residents in various countries make us discover their daily lives through the column “Tell us about …”
