African Instagram

Photographers posting their photos from the brilliant continent are dispelling myths and shattering misconceptions by filling their travel Instagram accounts with inspiring images and stories from previously mostly inaccessible regions.

From colorful street fashion to vast landscapes and glimpses of daily life in bustling cities and remote villages, we are shown that Africa offers much more than the safaris it has become synonymous with. This new draw card seductively entices people to want more places and people, providing a taste that will prompt further exploration of the areas so honestly presented.

Here are 10 African travel Instagrammers to follow, from South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zanzibar and Angola, plus a collaborative look at Africa, for good measure.

10 Instagram travel accounts in Africa

1.Ghana – Prince Gyasi

Ghanaian Prince Gyasi noted that he enjoyed observing and following a photographer who worked in a studio located in Makola Market, Accra, the capital of Ghana, where he was introduced to photography. In the years that followed, he also developed an interest in painting. This love of painting and photography has given him a unique style that is instantly recognizable – a form of visual art that is essentially a blend of painting and photography.

2. Southern Africa – Solly Levi

Solly Levi’s photographs show the marvelous beauty of the African continent. Based in the UK and raised in the Congo, his animal imagery is transcendent and his style is distinct. Many of Solly’s photos are taken from a low angle, which gives a different perspective and isolates his subject. He also uses a drone to create stunning aerial landscapes and completely different views of animal life. Look for their photography workshops if you want to learn some of these skills.

One of my absolute favorites! Emma is an incredibly talented photographer, writer and content curator, with a deep appreciation of art, food, culture and film. His photographs highlight architecture, decoration and design and his trips to some of the most famous lodges offer a sense of freedom that only travel can bring. As if you were there. Everything about Emma and her work inspires me!
