There are a lot of questions that I get over and over, so I’ve put them all below. In these posts, I’ve tried to cover of as much ‘general’ Africa travel info as possible.

Can you help me plan my Africa trip?

At the moment I am super busy planning my tours so I sadly don’t have time to help everyone plan their trips, however I wrote this post specifically to help you plan your dream trip to Africa! it covers absolutely everything from start to finish.

Can I travel with you?

Yes you can! Join one one of my tours to Africa! I currently have trip running to Kenya, Tanzania & Zanzibar and Uganda, Rwanda & the DRC.

Want a recommendation for places to stay in Africa or which safari companies to use?

I have a list of companies that I use all the time and that I highly recommend over on my Africa Travel Resources page. On here you’ll also find various helpful sites, books and apps to help you plan your Africa trip!

Do you have any Africa travel tips for me?

I have millions! However, this is a really hard question to answer because it really depends where you are going! Plus, it would take me hours to answer all of the emails I get asking this, so…I wrote a post with all my general Africa travel tips! I hope it helps!

I’ve never travelled in Africa before and I’m a bit nervous, do you have any words of advice or encouragement?

Feeling nervous is natural, I was scared too the first time I went. But I soon found out that Africa is an amazing place to travel! I wrote the below post to help ease you in!

How much money will I need for travel in Africa?

This is a very big question. It really depends on your travel style and where you go! I have some advice on budgeting in this post, however, in the below two posts, I list absolutely everything I spent. This will vary for everyone, but you can at least get an idea of what it might cost if you do it my way and then adjust according to your own travel style.

Is Africa ok for a solo female traveller?

This is one of my earlier posts and needs a bit of updating, however, I still stand by the sentiment. Yes absolutely, Africa is a great place for a solo female traveller!

What should I pack for backpacking in Africa?

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need to be head to toe in khaki for your entire Africa trip, neither do you need zip off trousers. that being said, it’s good to be prepared! Here
