Unlimited access to Nomad Africa along with 5,000+ other digital magazines and premium stories
In this edition, we get to explore a new perspective on the way we travel. At what point do we draw the line when we visit a community, enter their homes and take pictures of them like we would an animal on safari? On page 64, we looked at both sides of the coin – “cultural immersion or poverty touting”. Much focus has been on Airbnb’s ability to become a new kind of online travel agency and a major disrupter to the traditional hotel industry, especially after a recent announcement from Airbnb that bookings in Nigeria have increased by 213% as of June 2018, with Ghana and Mozambique coming in second and third, what does this mean for hoteliers in Africa? Should hoteliers feel threatened by this? Check out more details on page 50. Mapaseka Sekgala – a new addition to our editorial team, had lots of fun exploring the Seychelles and Tsitsikamma. She bungee jumped from the world’s highest commercial bungee, giving details into her adventures on pages 20 and 35. In another special feature, Martin Chemhere, in his piece, looked at Ethiopia on the path to becoming the next China on page 62. Rwanda has rolled out the East African Community (EAC) electronic passport in an effort to boost faster border clearance. Check out more details on page 82. We have added a few more segments to your favourite magazine as requested by you our readers. Our ultimate goal at Nomad Africa is to change the narrative of the world’s perception of the African continent, showcase to the world what the beautiful continent has got to offer and in so doing, encourage more Africans to explore their own continent. This is a noble course which we can only achieve with your continuous support.
Borne from a passionate desire to dispel the negative perceptions which the world has held of the African Continent, and to replace it with a positive focus, Nomad Africa magazine celebrates life on the African continent. Covering stories from all countries and all cultures, it strives to include unique tourist attractions, business development, technology and investment opportunities as well as looking at the continent's cultural heritage. Nomad Africa inspires and breeds a conscious, knowledgeable generation of visionaries among our own, and influences positive perceptions and appreciation for the true worth of Africa worldwide.
