Africa / Kenya

With international travel reopening, more destinations prepare to open their borders. Africa is ready to welcome back travelers by sharing new reasons why people should visit in 2022. Go2Africa is pleased to share new openings and private experiences travelers can look forward to. With an entire team of African-born and -raised specialists, visitors are in good hands. Whether visiting for the first time or planning to go off the beaten path, travelers can start planning with confidence.


New Hotel Openings

There are six notable new hotels slated to open throughout Africa in 2022. Here are three to look forward to:


Sanctuary Tambarare is located in the shadow of Mount Kenya. Visitors can see the Big Five animals roam across Ol Pejeta Conservancy.


Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts is opening a new IIha Caldeira property in Mozambique. Guests can partake in whale-watching, kayaking, scuba diving and exploring the islands within the archipelago.


The Homestead is set to launch in early 2022 on Nambiti Private Game Reserve in South Africa. Nambiti is regarded as one of South Africa’s most ambitious conservation initiatives and one of the few reserves known for spotting lions, leopards, buffalos, elephants and rhinos.


2022 Travel Trends

Private Experiences

A focus on the outdoors, exclusive safari homes, personal chefs and private guides make Africa a desirable and safe destination in 2022. Go2Africa organizes exclusive, one-of-a-kind tailored trips that allow travelers to personalize their experiences.


Travel Bubbles at African Bush Camps

African Bush Camps recently launched exclusive-use and private guided safaris for their camps across Botswana, Zambia and Zimbabwe, known as “Travel Bubbles.” These give travelers the opportunity to explore safely and avoid other travelers if needed.


Remote Workcation Experience in the Seychelles

Swap out your home office for an exotic island escape where you can enjoy a blend of vacation and work. The program is for professionals interested in a nomadic lifestyle, allowing them to work from the Seychelles for up to one year.


Escape to The Galapagos of Africa: São Tomé and Príncipe

As the second-smallest economy in Africa, São Tomé and Príncipe cover two islands and several uninhabited islets in the Gulf of Guinea. It is a true escape from the modern world and the perfect destination for eco-tourists looking to explore “Lost Worlds,” with stunning beaches, chances to explore the jungle and snorkeling.
