At INSPIRED JOURNEYS we believe in Africa. Not just the parts everyone knows, but especially what we like to call UNCONVENTIONAL AFRICA. The blurry spots on the tourism maps that were either never accessible or forgotten after troubled times. Like Virunga National Park in the Congo (DRC), Dzanga Sangha National Park in Central African Republic (CAR), or Odzala in Congo (Brazaville). These are the places that still offer true authentic EXPERIENCES, and where as a traveler you can make a REAL IMPACT.

We ASPIRE TO INSPIRE our guests to experience something AUTHENTIC and EXCITING and whenever possible in a way that contributes to the COMMUNITIES and CONSERVATION of the areas they visit, by using service providers, hotels and lodges that reinvest their earnings in conservation and community support.

Have a browse around our website and drop us a line if you have any questions, we are looking forward to hearing from you, and to find out WHERE YOUR INSPIRATION WILL TAKE YOU!
