Get Paid To Explore Your Backyard

Hello Africa Travel is looking for content creators to join our community of travel scouts.

How does the Travel Scout Program work?

  • A travel scout travels to verify a Hello Africa Travel listing and tell the story of Hello Africa Travel through the content they create and memories they make. Assignments could include exploring a heritage site, joining a multi-day group trip or just exploring your backyard. The travel scout is responsible for providing content that captures the listing and assignment brief. Your content will help to set expectations for travellers who may want to visit in the future.

How much do travel scouts get paid?

  • As a Travel Scout, you have full control of your own earnings! Upload 15-20 photos and a review, and you’ll get paid R 750.00 - R 1 000.00 per assignment. There is no maximum for assignments a travel scout can claim, though we ask that travel scouts only claim as many assignments as they can commit to completing thoughtfully. This is not a full-time position. Travel Scouts are independent contractors.

Where can I see assignments?

  • We have assignments available in South Africa, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Zambia and new ones get added every month. All available assignments can be seen on the assignment dashboard. If you're an approved travel scout, you can claim any of these assignments.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I applied! When will I know if I’m approved?

    We cannot guarantee how quickly you will hear back about your application (we’re a small team!), but we usually get to all applications within three weeks. We do follow up with all applicants, whether approved or otherwise. If you’re approved, you’ll receive an onboarding email with more details and can claim assignments right away!

  • How much content do I have to take per assignment?

    We ask that, at minimum, Travel Scouts take content specific to the assignment they’ve booked.

  • Do you cover travel expenses?

    We do not cover any travel expenses at this time. You have to get yourself to the assignment's starting point.
