About

ESCAPADES is all about travel. We offer inspiration and advice on where to go, how to get there and what to experience.

Although our ambit is broad (from luxury lodges to rickety ferries — in Africa as well as far beyond that), we’re particularly drawn to travel experiences that have a positive impact on communities and the environment and involve forging cross-cultural connections and understanding.

We believe travel has the power to change minds, hearts and lives. It’s an opportunity for discovery and learning — as much about ourselves as about the people we meet along the way.

ESCAPADES is edited by Alexander Matthews, a freelance writer and editor based in South Africa. If you’d like to get in touch, drop him a line.
