About Tastemakers Africa
What is our story?
Tastemakers Africa is the definitive guide for people who want to travel Africa and skip the mediocre. No long lists of suggestions or clunky websites, just the best of the best, presented beautifully on our website and mobile app. For the African creative, it’s a place where beautiful, interesting content about your ‘hood lets you share your world with people who are longing for some insight. For tour operators and guides it’s a place where you can put your best foot forward with innovative, premium experiences for a mobile audience. And for travelers, we offer epic ways to travel in Africa through our mobile app (TSTMKRS for iOS and Android), virtual concierge, and small group travel experiences.
Who do we work with?
We support local tour operators and curators who create authentic experiences with interesting stories. We only do special things. Things with heart. Things thought out by people committed to fundamentally creating a change in what people think “Africa” is. No lion hunting or weird poverty voyeurism (yes, that’s a thing) just amazing things to do wherever you travel in the continent. Sign up to be one of our elite suppliers at tastemakersafrica.com/partner, and we’ll be in touch. Interest has been overwhelming, so please bear with us!
Can’t I do this myself?
You could if you’re down to spend real time getting to know people in every African city, create new systems on quality assurance, and connect the dots where they’ve never been connected before. But enough with the technical talk – why would you want to? A bespoke experience in a digital environment from a brand you trust to always have the scoop – it’s what dreams (and epic vacays) are made of.
So you’re like Yelp for Africa?
Nope. Do you really need the stuff that sucks when you’re planning some R & R or trying to mix business and pleasure? We didn’t think so. We get straight to the point with the only things you should really consider.
Where is info on (fill in the city we don’t have tons of info on)?
We’re a young company that’s committed to the quality of our recommendations. If you’d like to submit something awesome – please sign up to be a contributor. We’re looking for curious people who like the “good life” to have some meaning to it. We’ll be on the lookout for the goodness you send our way.
