With a semi-fluid itinerary, I am attempting to visit over 15 African countries with the overwhelming desire to document and explore small towns, big cities and the beauty in-between.
There is no solid route mapped out, the plan is to make it up as I go along – from big cities to small towns, stopping to explore all the places you’ve heard of and the places you have not; to show the diversity and beauty of different destinations I will be visiting.
When I started thinking and planning this trip in late 2019, COVID-19 struck and life as we know it changed forever. At a crossroads of uncertainty, I decided to take a leap of faith and slowly travel across Africa to explore:
Where in Africa can I travel visa free as a Zimbabwean passport holder?
Do I need to vaccinate or not to enter these countries?
What is it like to work remotely in different African countries?
How COVID-19 has affected tourism and hospitality small and medium enterprises in the destinations I visit?
Learn who is currently travelling and what they spend their time doing on holiday
Explore tourism and hospitality investment opportunities.
I wanted to answer these questions in a creative and practical ways. I hope that this will not only contribute to my own personal journey, but also to become a shared resource of document and archiving places I visit.
