Top 10 African Travel Blogs
Siergiej Miloczkin and Hanna Oksanen contributed to this post.
This week’s Top 10 has gone international! Using Cision’s media database and enlisting the help of our colleagues in Europe, we compiled this list of African travel blogs based on Cision’s proprietary research. We then ranked the blogs by comment count during the month of September, as well as number of inbound links. Active social presence was also taken into account. Please note that we focused on independent blogs, excluding those run by larger brands or agencies.
1. Cape Town My Love – Karisa Nicholls, South Africa
2. The Travel Manual – Vaughan & Lauren McShane, South Africa
I doubt my #GoPro tastes as good as those plants Mrs Ellie. Morning walking sessions with a herd of Elephants at #ElephantNaturePark in Chiang Mai, Thailand. If you haven’t heard of this sanctuary (and it truly is a sanctuary) then please look them up on the interwebs and get involved in protecting Southeast Asian elephants from working in the tourism sector. The abuse they endure before they’re “tame” is horrendous. Here they are so well looked after by Lek and the volunteers from all over the world that it is like a true elephant heaven.

4. The Incidental Tourist – Dawn Jorgensen, South Africa
5. Maroc Mama – Amanda Mouttaki, Morocco
It’s Monday. You’re back at work. Let’s take a vacation shall we? This is the port of Essaouira. Men still go out each morning in these blue wooden boats to fish the Atlantic coastal waters. When they return you can go right up to the boats to buy whatever they’ve brought in. Now that’s fresh! #essaouira #mogador #morocco #fishing #natgeo #lp #instadaily #instatbn #igersmorocco #travel #escape #eatlocal #foodie #chef #everydaymorocco #scoopsmondayescape #LiveTravelChannel A photo posted by Amanda Mouttaki (@marocmama) on
