Called the “sexy, dope way to experience Africa” by Fusion and heralded as an innovator by AFAR, Conde Nast Traveler, CNN, and more Tastemakers Africa offers unique tours created and hosted by artists, creators, and makers in Africa and beyond. We help you connect with people in authentic ways whether you are exploring nightlife with a DJ, learning food traditions from a chef, or experiencing living history with an icon.
Our goal is to build a world in which we value people on equal standing no matter where they are born or the color of their skin. We put a premium on culture, especially that created by people of African descent whether they are based on the continent or living in the diaspora - we are the keepers of the cool. Currently in Accra, Cape Town, Dakar, and Johannesburg and quickly expanding worldwide, Tastemakers is building community, fueling passions, and creating sustainable change in a way that values both the visitor and the person who calls Africa home.
Our travelers represent the Diaspora in all its forms - and come with us to the Continent from all around the world. Our community of members convene (digitally and IRL) in three languages, on five continents, and over hundreds of events per year - from member pods, to speaker series, to member-only concerts. And our team supports the entire operation from offices in New York, London, and Accra. We're a group of globetrotting creatives, technologists, and operators that think there is unlimited strength in community and there is nothing more exciting than the next challenge we have to solve.
