U.S. travel entrepreneur Cherae Robinson recently sat down to talk with our sister site, AFKInsider, and offered a slew of helpful tips on how to travel Africa better and smarter.
For example, if you want to travel Africa like a jetsetter but expensive flights are holding you back, stay up late and you might find that US$400 fare to Zanzibar, or that $130 round trip fare to Kenya.
In the video below, Robinson smashes stereotypes about African travel, and offers travelers tips and experiences that go beyond safaris and the tired old African travel itineraries.
She offers TastemakersAfrica tours, which span local traditions and global ambitions — art strolls, indie music haunts, eco- friendly retreats and hidden spas. You can also try out her Tastemakers app on her website.
Forbes named Robinson one of 10 Emerging Women Entrepreneurs To Watch In Africa. Her efforts also gained her recognition from the U.N. Foundation, which named her one of 10 Women to Watch”” for her work expanding tourism to Africa and working to change outsider perceptions of Africa.
