About Us

Tingu is a platform for travel in Africa, connecting local hosts to travellers that want to join group trips.  Knowledgeable local hosts will take you on a curated trip in your own country, or another African country. Originally started as a travel blog in 2017 focusing on African travel, Tingu has evolved into an online marketplace that empowers locals to showcase the beauty of their own continent, in a way that is accessible to the everyday person wanting to travel Africa. It’s time we travelled our own backyards, so join a trip and let’s explore!
