The Kangela Travel Story

Kangela (also Khangela)
Meaning: to search / look for / to seek
Used widely in Southern and East Africa.

The Kangela Travel Blog is aimed primarily at a slightly more mature travel fanatic. Folks who are financially secure, have the time and financial means to travel and are looking to experience the world in style and comfort. So you won't find much here on backpacker establishments and the like, but rather a more upmarket range of experiences, establishments and travel experiences.

With that being said, we hope that travellers of all ages will find value or something of interest.

Safe travels.
