Founders of Black Packers Movement Bongani Masilela and Tumi Mpakanyane share tips on visas, money, accommodation and transport.

Are you thinking of taking the plunge and going on an adventure in Africa?

Founders of Black Packers Movement Bongani Masilela and Tumi Mpakanyane have some tips and tricks on how to navigate your way through the continent.

Whenever you are going to visit a number of countries, make sure they are in the same region and also make sure they are in the same political organisation type body. For example, for us travelling through East FArica was much easier because they have a single visa regime system where if you apply for an East African visa you can travel without hassles.

For airlines, Kenya Airlines is the most affordable.

I think countries like Rwanda and Ethiopia are probably a safer bet for people travelling in smaller groups or travelling alone especially for women, safety is something to plan around.
