Bey Thenga is a young South African social entrepreneur who is adventuring across Africa, using only public transport, to forge a new backpacking route that is accessible to all Africans while establishing new partnerships, businesses and social projects that benefit communities along the route.

He is presently traveling via the imperialist and entrepreneur Cecil Rhodes's Cape to Cairo route #UnderstandingAfrica and mapping a new backpackers route; a one of its own kind. His key strength is intense research and analysis which will benefit him as he travels across Africa, from Cape to Cairo, to understand its cultures, traditions, challenges and what puts Africa where it is today. His detailed mapping of affordable, but safe public transport, community based tourism projects, guest houses and backpackers across Africa will be a traveling guide for all avid travellers across Africa.

Bey is certified as a Specialist by South African Tourism on "Cultures & Lifestyles" and "Lap of Luxury".
