Africa Travel Week

I love the diverse culture found in Africa – Papy Luzala

What do you love most about Africa?

I’m always fascinated by the various cultures that I get to meet whenever I travel across Africa. Each city in Africa has a vibrant energy with truly welcoming people.

Where are you heading in 2021? What adventures await you?

In 2021, I look forward to more countries across Africa lifting up their travel restrictions and opening up their borders in order to welcome visitors in a safer manner, while still observing all health protocols. With that, I look forward to possibly visiting the magnificent Victoria Falls and experience the majestic water flows of the Zambezi river.

What is the favourite thing about your role in Africa Travel Week?

What I like about my role in ATW is that I always get to meet different and amazing people from all corners of Africa.

Based on your 5 senses, what are you looking forward to most during the Connect in the City Live in September?

During Connect in the City Live in September, I look forward to seeing clients from across Africa that I haven’t seen for a while, hearing stories of resilience on how people in the travel industry navigated the challenges brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic to the industry, touching the sea sand again and smelling its fresh waters from Cape Town’s splendid beaches.
