East Africa tourism news update – There is a lot more to read about us out there


I am often asked about where my readers can find more material, and more specific details of what is going on across Eastern Africa, and my answer, with few variations, is almost always the same:

Access on the web such publications as KenyaBuzz, a weekly guide outlining a rich variety of where to go, what to do, what to attend, were to travel to, where to eat out, what superb options for self catering holidays are available across the country, especially the coast and what sporting and cultural events take place over the following week or month. Visit them via www.kenyabuzz.com

For Uganda and Rwanda it is The Eye, available every two months in Uganda in print and on the web and every three months in Rwanda, again in print – for free – and on the web. Details here are available via www.theeye.co.ug and www.theeye.co.rw – often including main features articles by yours truly.

And then, yes there is more still to read and get all salivating over where to visit next … the web publication of Travel News Kenya via www.travelnewskenya.travel and the Africa Travel Magazine’s ‘Shamwari’ web editions featuring updates between the ‘must read’ print editions of Travel Zambia, Travel Namibia, Travel Zimbabwe and of course the main magazine Travel Africa. These superb magazines are available for subscription too as nothing beats sitting in a hammock, at least not for me, and leafing through these magazines and gobbling up news from Africa’s tourism and conservation scenes, appreciating the stories and pictures and even enjoying the commercials and adverts, so good and well designed are many of those.

Their main web portal can be found via www.travelafricamag.com from where links lead to the other editions.

What’s left to say – COME VISIT, there is no time like the present.
