INNOVATION AWARDS

To celebrate this year’s Innovation Awards winners, our tribe dusted themselves with a touch of gold and gathered at The Ritz’s Shimmy Beach Club.

Our shortlist displayed the most inspiring, bold and unexpected achievements in high-end African travel – and whilst every member of our community is a winner in our eyes, the below brands stood out against the rest and were declared victors, as voted for by our tribe of African travel brands, buyers and press.
