AFRICA, THE OTHER STORY

If there is one continent that is subject to stereotypes and clichés, it is Africa. Until recently, mainly sensational & disastrous reports reached living rooms all over the globe. With a reason, but these messages dictate only 1 side of generally complex stories and often a rather negative one. 

This continent is bursting with positive stories and a diversity so wide you cannot comprehend it from the comfort of your couch at home. This one-sided story and negative perspective needs to change and tourism is the perfect tool to help this cause. An industry that is stuck in clichés, in which travelers are being pushed into the same typical directions. A safari or beach lodge is nice, but what have you really seen and experienced on this continent? Yes, you have seen beautiful wildlife. But how many people have you really spoken to? What is the biggest eye-opener you encountered? Which foods did you try? In the end: what is the complete story that you bring back home from your travels in Africa? 

Together with you, our travelers and our partners, we want to paint a complete picture and let people also engage in the ‘other side of Africa’! How? By offering a refreshing and authentic way of traveling and by sharing our stories. Being on ground 24/7 in the destinations we specialize in, enables us to develop our own routes, expand our network daily and create the most special experiences, thus offering truly unique tailor made trips and we take responsibility as a company. 

ABOUT CHARLIE’S TRAVELS

We are Charlie’s Travels: a young, Dutch travel agency (scale-up) aiming to show travelers the real, diverse Africa!

We join forces to organize unforgettable, off-the-beaten track tours in Eastern and Southern Africa, especially appealing to those travelers who want to escape the standard tourist route and embark on a more authentic adventure!

STARTUP TO SCALE-UP!

Charlie’s Travels has grown from a sole trader to a travel scale-up with over 40 Angels spread across the continent in 2.5 years. Growth continues unabated and so do our ambitions. In 4 years we are:

– The #1 off-the-beaten track travel agency in Africa for the Dutch Market.

– We develop unique experiences & routes in all regions of the continent.

– We have an extensive work-lifestyle community for our team of dedicated Africa lovers in offices & villas from which we can live, work and keep exploring  in style.
