Africa is a beautiful continent with great people and offers countless destinations worth exploring for people who are travel enthusiasts. With over 1.2 billion people, Africa is the second most populous continent. However, there is little information detailing the travel destinations.

The Explore Africa Campaign aims to bridge the content gap that currently exists with respect to notable landmark areas. This would be accomplished by engaging with travel and tourism professionals who will provide their knowledge on landmark locations and tourist destinations. They would recruit and engage new wikimedians who will create and enhance content about travel destinations.
