Where to go in Africa as a Digital Nomad?

Always on the hunt for new places to explore in Africa, we handpick our favourite locations to create our off-the-beaten-path curated “AfricaNomads Route”. We think that Africa has some of the best locations for Digital Nomads to live: from the white sand beaches to pristine wilderness and everything in between. We love to immerse ourselves in different cultures and learn from them. We have lived in several areas of the East and South of this amazing continent, but we always want to see more. That's why we're planning to create the “AfricaNomads Route” that will take us to other similarly unique destinations across the continent. Stay tuned for our calendar, coming soon. And if you have a suggestion for where we should go next, let us know in the questionnaire below!
