We are Charlie’s Travels: a young, Dutch travel agency (scale-up) aiming to show travellers the real, diverse Africa! This is only possible because of our very skilled and passionate team members: a group of Africa-enthusiasts living across the continent. We have Angels in Nairobi, Durban, Uganda, Tanzania, and the Netherlands.
