Introducing the Tour Guide Africa Series

We’re excited to announce the Tour Guide Africa (TGAFrica) blog series. This is a weekly/bi-weekly group of interviews with local tour guides and operators who are powering the African tourism industry. They share more about themselves, their businesses, tourist destinations in Africa, insider travel knowledge, travel tips, and hacks – all from the other side of the tourism ‘line’.

Tour Guide Africa - The Afriktrip Blog

In-depth discussions with the African tours and activities Powerhouse.

TGAFrica series provides an insight into the lives of local tour guides in Africa. It’s about people who are the engine that drives the African tourism industry, the local experts who help travelers learn more about a place, culture and history. Tour guides or tour operators are like gatekeepers to a destination. They are your access to authentic travel experiences. There is no better way to gain insight than from people on the ground who really know their stuff

As one of the innovative travel companies in Africa, Afriktrip is constantly speaking and partnering with local tour guides and companies doing amazing work all over Africa. TGAFrica lets us hit record and share everything we’re learning! With every series episode, we’re excited to put you in the same room with the people at the frontlines of African tourism.
