At Discover Africa Group, we welcome guest posts, so we decided to draw up a few guidelines to better help your chances of seeing your article appear on one of our travel websites (which we would love).

General Direction

  • We’re looking for useful content that our readers will appreciate.
  • Use personal experience examples wherever you can to better illustrate an area of expertise.
  • We’re looking for new content that hasn’t been on the web before.
  • Please don’t violate any copyright laws. Let’s play nice.
  • We’re not a fan of promotional articles.

Preferred Southern Africa Article Themes

We love content that surrounds the specific locations and destinations we deal with.

  • If you’re able to contribute the following based on them – great!
  • Personal road trip experience stories 
  • Travel route reviews 
  • Destination reviews
  • Travel tips and tricks 
  • Camping or caravanning advice 
  • Travel How-To guides
