Discover Africa's best on a new upmarket African travel show on EbonyLife

Is Africa worth travelling…? We certainly think so! EbonyLife TV has teamed up with Wakanow, a one stop travel portal, to produce an upmarket travel show, designed for the African traveller, highlighting the continent’s top tourist destinations. The 30 minute, 12-part series premieres on EbonyLife TV (165) on Saturday 7 May at 20:30 CAT.

What sets this travel series apart? We explore our own backyard the way the African traveller would experience their ideal vacation. Each episode features a Nigerian personality who meets a local host and together they explore the country’s top-end attractions, rich history, authentic treasures, culinary delights and some unexpected gems. Whether it’s visiting the world’s biggest Basilica in Cote d’Ivoire, walking with cheetahs in Zambia, sugar tastings in Mauritius, Nigeria’s party scene or cruising The River Gambia - the show has something special for everyone.

The featured destinations include: Kenya, Seychelles, Mauritius, Tanzania, Zambia, Rwanda, Ghana, The Gambia, Senegal, Ethiopia, Cote d’Ivoire, Nigeria.

Speaking on the partnership between EbonyLife TV and Wakanow, EbonyLife TV CEO Mo Abudu said, “It is an honour to be partnering with an organisation who have become the bridge between the traveller and the destination, they are becoming the one stop travel shop for Africans at home and in the diaspora.”

Wakanow MD Obinna Ekezie expressed his delight: “The DestinationsAfrica show points out that Wakanow is poised to become a key player, in not only Africa but the world, with an undying passion to change the way people travel. The program is an avenue to showcase the best of what Africa has to offer as well as the added value of getting well-priced travel packages made possible by the very extensive partnership that Wakanow has with Airlines, Hotels partners and tourism stakeholders in Africa.”

Travelling opens our eyes to a world much bigger than ourselves. When we explore other cultures, we find that the things that make us similar are greater than the things that make us different.
