I am an entrepreneurial anthropologist who cannot decide if she loves nature or people more. With this dilemma in mind, three and a half years ago, I founded Safarisource. We are a platform connecting local guides across Africa to international travelers.
As the sharing economy develops, the opportunities for cutting out the middle-man seem endless. After Lyft and Uber revolutionised personal transport, BlaBlaCar challenged public transportation and Airbnb overthrew our concept of monetising our own properties, Safarisource attempts to do the same thing with safaris. Launched at the INDABA tourism trade fair in South Africa on May 16, safarisource.com connects tourists with local African tour operators.
