Experience Africa Like A Local With NuTravel Africa

About Us



Are you planning a trip to Africa to work, volunteer or to enjoy a relaxing vacation? Then sign up with us today.

NuTravel Africa aims to help you make the most of your trip, by connecting you to locals (called buddies) to help you make the most of your stay.


Buddies live, breathe and love their local cities. They'll plan fun things to do - so you don't have to. They'll meet up with you, show you around, help you feel safe and make sure you have a great time. 


Experience Africa like you never have before, through the eyes of the local.
We will launch in East Africa Africa in 2024, with plans to expand to the South and West later in the year. 

Whatever type of trip you’re dreaming of, we’ve got you covered.

Buddies regularly organise group activities which you're welcome to join. It's a great way to meet people and see famous landmarks.

Personalised Activites

You can also book a personalised activity with a buddy: like shopping, watching a local show, afternoon drinks or beach fun.

Get Around Safely

If there are a few 'must sees' you'd like to experience but don't want to go on your own, simply book a buddy to go along with you.

Meet some of our local buddies


Meet Chimemwe


Meet Peter


Meet Zione

Fancy a relaxed hike sometime?

Chimemwe lives in Zomba and knows the best hiking routes up the Zomba plateau for the best views of Southern Malawi. She loves to cook and often invites her friends round for dinner.

How good's your football?

Peter has lived in Lilongwe for most of his life and claims to know everyone! He'll happily invite you to join a game of football with his mates. They usually go for a few drinks afterwards if you're up for that too.

Boat trip anyone?

 Zione lives in Blantyre and recently graduated from university. She can take you boat riding, fishing or help you bargain for the best prices when you go shopping.
