About Africa

Home Swap Africa - Home Swapping

Home Swapping

Home swapping in Africa is a fantastic way to experience the continent. As tourism isn’t built up in many countries in Africa, and it's not the cheapest area in the world to travel, home swapping can be a great alternative for accommodation options. Locals will be happy to see remote workers enjoying life and it is a great way to grow the tourism sector.

Home Swap Africa - Remote Work

Remote Work

Africa is a good place to work remotely, despite the poor infrastructure in some regions. Not only can you see some of the world's most amazing sights and save money on the cost of living, but it's also a world unlike any other. As remote workers help grow the tourism sector, many cities have adapted to make remote workers more comfortable. Co-working spaces are popping up in various countries, such as Nairobi Garage in Kenya, and AlMaqarr in Cairo, Egypt.
