TRAVEL AFRICA is the only international magazine dedicated to the promotion of travel to Africa, celebrating its diverse attractions, wildlife and culture, while offering practical travel advice and inspiration.

Published since 1997, TRAVEL AFRICA is produced quarterly and distributed in print via newsstands and specialist outlets in the UK, USA, South Africa and in 35 other countries. This includes in airport lounges and select office blocks in the City of London, through lodges and camps across Africa, and on all Safarilink flights. The top 3000 donors to African Wildlife Foundation are sent copies.

TRAVEL AFRICA is a high quality, substantive read of around 160-176 pages, drawing on top travel writers, photographers and experts across the continent. Each issue has at least 10 features, and dedicated sections on conservation and safari planning.

Additional content is published on travelafricamag.com, and through a monthly online magazine, 'Travel Africa Extra'. The magazine is also available through Zinio.com and the Travel Africa magazine App on all mobile platforms (see your App store or pocketmags.com).

We also have an online travel directory, to help readers easily find reliable companies they can travel with. Visit www.safariplanner.co.uk for more information.

TRAVEL AFRICA reaches a highly targetted audience of confirmed African travellers. 88% of readers are actively planning a trip to Africa in the next two years (61% in the next year), and with the number of people they travel with and amount spent per trip, the magazine influences approx £36m worth of African travel each year.

We work closely with our partners to develop campaigns to promote them through advertising, editorial, online directory and social media.

TRAVEL AFRICA is published in the UK by Gecko Publishing Ltd, which also produces ZiNG CARIBBEAN (the LIAT inflight magazine) and has published Msafiri, Paa Tanzania, Kenya Yetu, Skyhost, Travel Zambia, Travel Namibia and other titles. Our full portfolio of titles, current and past, can be seen at www.ta-emags.com
