Re-Authoring  tourism on the African continent

"Honest Travel was born from the desire to re-author tourism on the African continent. 


The African continent is not only rich in minerals but also rich in history and culture. How this message is portrayed in the travel industry is one we strongly disagree with. We are not here to show you hungry kids and slums. Rather, we are here to showcase the beauty and the potential of the African continent through experiences that will have you thinking differently about our communities and places on this continent.


We here to connect people and places around the continent, with our goal of making travel affordable and accessible to everyone.


It's about time the tourism industry stopped selling poverty to the world.


We are more than just a tour company we are a MOVEMENT on a mission to re-author tourism through unique experiences" - Franck Leya, Co-Founder
