OUR JOURNEY SO FAR

When Tapiwa Ndlovu, a Zimbabwean student who had been living in the USA for 4 years visited Cape Town for 6 months in 2017, he wanted to be culturally immersed in the Cape Town culture as he explored. He yearned for authentic and amazing travel experiences, besides just visiting famous landmarks like Table Mountain. He struggled to find locals that would provide him with that. Imagine if he could get someone to give him a cooking lesson on how to make a Malayan dish or spent a day exploring Cape Town with a local? This experience sparked a revolutionary approach to tourism, and together with Ayyoob Abrahams, they started Kumba Africa in May 2018.

Inspired by their love for technology and the enthusiasm to enjoy life to the fullest, our founders decided to change how travelers experience Africa. For years, traveling to Africa has been a painful and long process for most travelers who have no idea about what to expect in Africa. On the other hand, Kumba wants to encourage more Africans to travel within the continent. Many have resorted to either not going or simply choosing generic holiday packages. Travelers crave authenticity, simplicity and convenience, and Kumba Africa provides that.
