Want to travel to Africa but feel a little worried? In this video two solo female travellers who went backpacking around the continent share their best tips!
I, Sabina, am at the beginning of a five month journey around Africa. I’ll be travelling to Ethiopia, Uganda, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, South Africa and Madagascar.

She also runs the wonderful channel Backpacking Africa for Beginners where she shares tonnes of useful tips.
