OurAfrica.Travel - Professional Partners - South Africa

OurAfrica.Travel is a virtual travel trade show that brings Africa, the Indian Ocean Islands and the Middle East to the Global Travel Trade. 

Now in it's third year, after two successful shows, we feel there will continue to be a place for a good virtual show which is affordable, inclusive, more eco-friendly than a physical show, and will complement the already established physical shows. OurAfrica.Travel will become a feature on the global travel trade event calendar going forward. 

OurAfrica.Travel originally launched in 2020 to fill the void left by the cancellation of so many trade shows and saw a collaboration between Rudi Wagenaar, Storm Napier, Allie Hunt and the African travel community, who together, reignited, reconnected and reinvigorated our industry at a time when we all needed it most. Our mission was to reconnect Africa to the world – inclusively as an industry, #strongertogether and most importantly, affordably. At the time the best way to do this was virtually, and this will now continue to be a part of our ‘new normal’ in the ‘new world’.
