About Me

Hi there! My name is Tania Mukwamu and I was born in Kinshasa, in The Democratic Republic of Congo. At 17, I moved to Johannesburg South Africa where sI now live and run a Software development company with my husband Ruddy.

I caught the travel bug early on, watching both my parents travel the world for business and telling us stories of their adventures. My passion for travel was later on fuelled as I was fortunate enough to travel extensively for work.

Every week Kongo Travels takes you on a journey to discover this beautiful world we live in; but most importantly, it shares the travel notes of a young African traveler and let’s face it, things are not always easy. From tough visa applications, being asked to take a picture because you look “so different”, to the joys of finding an African restaurant in the middle of nowhere and eventually missing home.
