Although information in the publication can be used by travellers and tour operators, content is also visually stimulating and tastefully laid-out, utilizing the best photography and design. This means the publication can be kept as a source of reference and used for planning day trips and other activities whilst in Africa for almost ANYBODY!

- COVID19 UPDATES
Now, more than ever, our aim is to promote tourism & travel as we look forward to the re-emergence of the tourism and travel industry in a post-COVID-19 world. We have aptly christened this phase ‘UNLOCKING AFRICA!’ and we are super pumped to walk with you into this potentially ground-breaking new era in the tourism industry.
“The word unlock or unlocking is the opposite word for Lockdown, our new theme is representing how Africa Is coming out of the COVID crisis and also how we as Nomad Africa will be ‘Unlocking’ new opportunities that have arisen in the ‘new normal”, says John Akinribido, CEO and co-founder of 2414 Ltd. “In each new category we will be seeking to showcase what different people, businesses, cultures are doing to ‘unlock’ themselves as we restore Africa and the industry to an even greater ‘normal’.”
Watch this space!
Advertisers will also now benefit from featuring alongside original, niche content delivered daily and on a larger scale by an established and trusted brand.
New, ultra-modern digital features are in the pipeline to be unveiled on the online platforms over the next 3 months, with each new feature being communicated in a special mailer to subscribers and promoted online. Each month, these new features and exclusive content, which agents can keep for reference, will be printed and bound into special editions, and distributed to our valued subscribers.
