Most of us think we’ve been there done that when it comes to travelling in our own country. But the truth is, there are so many amazing new experiences to be had. All you need is an open mind and you can see a whole new side of Southern Africa that will surprise you. After all, when it comes to travel, it’s often the unexpected experiences that are the best ones.

With this in mind, we invited five bloggers to step out of their comfort zones and offer us an open mind. Each blogger will be going with Open Africa on a self-drive five-day trip somewhere in Southern Africa. But the destination is secret to them. Follow them on as they pack their bags and gear up for some amazing and unexpected experiences.

Open Africa is a social enterprise that establishes tourism routes offering travellers authentic experiences while generating income for local businesses in rural Africa.
