Travel Africa for good

An African safari is a bucket list item for many. No doubt. The problem being: will there still be safaris to go on in years to come? Amazing African animals to see? With endangered species on the rise, and desperately decreasing numbers of some of the most magical beasts known to man, if African safaris […] The post Travel Africa for good appeared first on A Luxury Travel Blog.

The origins and history of Nando’s

Ask any Brit what their favorite takeaway spot is and they’re sure to mention Nando’s. Ask them about the origins of Nando’s menu, and they’ll probably say Portugal. It’s a reasonable answer. Its logo is the Rooster of Barcelos, a famous Portuguese symbol. The food is seasoned with Portuguese spices and Portuguese bread rolls are among the restaurant’s many sides. However, to label Nando’s a product of Portugal isn’t strictly true. Nando’s was in fact born in Johannesburg, South Africa, makin...

Last year, 2019, was a year of political suspense in Europe, continued break-neck development in the Middle East and persistent hesitation in Africa.

NGO sending on birthright trip

Ta-Nehisi Coates mused, in his 2015 book, Between the World and Me, about the nature of the relationship between black Americans and travel. “It had never occurred to me to leave America — not even temporarily,” he says, elaborating that a friend of his “once said that he used to think of traveling as a pointless luxury, like blowing the rent check on a pink suit.” Black Americans still struggle to find access to the same avenues and institutions available to other Americans. We have been ba...
