Real sustainable tourism in Africa
We believe that tourism should leave more than footprints, should help nature, should help the people who live there. That tourism should inspire, teach and let visitors experience what Africa is really like. Not touristic Africa, but the real undiscovered continent that is Africa. We believe in Real sustainable tourism in Africa. Organised by Real people. Offering you Real experiences.
Our Africa is the Africa of endless horizons, stunning landscapes and the richest wildlife ecosystems on Earth. It’s where we dream of the last frontier, of unique places and remote regions where only a lucky few dare to thread.
It is also the Africa of wildly different people, people who will receive you with open arms in their homes, their villages and towns and who will share their lifestyle with you. It’s the Africa where tourists help maintain the environment, help locals grow and develop and are welcomed as honoured guests, not as money-machines. It’s the Africa where your visit impacts the environment in a positive way and helps maintain it for future generations. This is real sustainable tourism, this is Tales from Africa Travel, this is all about you and what you want.

It doesn’t get more real than this
Via Kurisa Moya Nature Lodge, a must see for bird lovers and peace seekers, we travelled to Umlani Bushcamp in the Greater Kruger wildlife area. Tales from Africa had found a truly unique location, an authentic old safari lodge, which we had completely to ourselves – including our own game drive vehicle and catering. Completely off-grid but what a super ambience with wood fire and oil lamps. It doesn’t get more real than this!
Tales from Africa listened carefully to our wishes and customized our tour as we wanted it, with great value for money. They’ll arrange all for you and you will see unique landscapes and experiences. And you’ll also have real meetings with real people from various South African communities. In short, a great experience that whetted our appetite for more. Once Covid-19 is over, we’ll travel back as quickly as we can.
