Tastemakers Africa’s motto is “travel Africa, skip mediocre.” While images of travel in Africa are often limited to safaris and camel rides, this company designs itineraries that focus on interacting with the local people and culture through art, music, and cuisine. This black travel group hosts tours of cities like Lagos, Dakar, and Accra. The group also hosts authentic activities curated and led by locals.
Cherae Robinson started the company to change the often-negative perceptions of the continent. Her former NGO job frequently led her to African countries, but her journeys were often met with fear and skepticism from those at home. But upon seeing people’s positive interest in response to the photos and stories she brought back with her, she saw an opportunity to transform the narrative by inviting people to experience some of the lesser known aspects of African life. Soon after, the Tastemakers brand was born, and it has since grown into a global community with offices around the world.
