In terms of global travel, a relatively high proportion of people visit cities on their holidays: New York, Paris, London, Barcelona, Venice, Sydney and Dubai are among those that instantly come to mind, but the list is long.Of course, these great cities have much to offer: dramatic skylines, famous monuments, prestigious museums and galleries, bound together by myriad restaurants, nightlife and a vibrant arts scene. Often there is an intrinsic character about them, an energy, a deep sense of history or a bold statement of grandeur. There’s enough to appeal to our wide range of interests to make them destinations in their own right, rather than places to pass through en route elsewhere.It strikes me that Africa has very few cities you would visit solely.

1 IAIN HARRISCape Town, p28“I have lived in different parts of Cape Town since I was 11, and have been exposed to many different ways of experiencing and engaging with the city. In 2005 I started Coffeebeans Routes, seeking to use tourism as a canvas for stories. We started experimenting with music tours, taking people to visit musicians in their homes. Nobody was asking for this kind of experience, but we figured that if these interesting opportunities were available, people would eventually find them. Our Cape Town Jazz Safari is now one of the most popular cultural experiences in the country. Coffeebeans grew to find ways to tell many different stories, and the city has a neverending supply.”2 AMELIA BROWNAmazing spaces, p106“I find telling stories about design in Africa endlessly…
