We're looking for stories about permaculture projects throughout Africa, on eco-friendly accommdation, on eco-travellers or wildlife and conservation. If here's any eco product you'd like to recommend we're open to hearing about that as well.

We're also looking for stories on Africa Travel! If you think you have a story that fits our website, please do get in touch with us.

As you can see from the website, we love images, so please do submit your best images as well.

  • Please include your author bio at the bottom of the article (in less than 75 words).
  • The suggested length for articles is between 500-750 words. Longer articles are also welcome where required.

Working together to make a difference

We are committed to spreading awareness about environmental issues and documenting a different side of Africa - one where people are making positive change from a grassroots level.

As such, we are looking to grow a talented team of contributors, so if you're interested in building a long-term relationship with a growing green-focused webiste, we'd be thrilled to have you join our team.

As the website grows, we're also looking at monetisation- which means we'll figure out ways to earn an income from the content we provide, and ultimately, employ a paid staff so that this website grows into THE authority on eco-travel in Africa.

Thank you for taking the time to learn about our site and we look forward to working with you.

Eco-travel & Lifestyles

Hi, my name is Melissa and I created this site together with photographer Christopher List to help spread awareness about green lifestyles and travel, so everyone can learn how easy it is to live in a sustainable way. Enjoy!

I wasn't sure what a permaculture design course was about, until I read through Melissa's fantastic blog! I've signed up and soon I'll be a PDC graduate too.

The link between personal responsibility and preserving our environment is becoming increasingly clear to me. Reading up on simple ways to be more eco-friendly in my life and travels has really helped me practice what I preach.

Dennis Howley - Namibia

I can't wait to follow Melissa and Chris' adventures in the Middle East and Africa. You guys inspire me!
