Community Guidelines: Backpacking Africa and Mzungu Tribe
What Backpacking Africa for Beginners Thinks is Cool:
Backpacking Africa for Beginners is all about promoting travel, especially rugged and budget travel, to African countries. We want you to feel excited, inspired, and empowered for the trip of your dreams.
What Backpacking Africa Does Not Think is Cool:
Discriminatory Speech. We don’t like comments about or against groups of people based on: race, ethnic origin, religion, nationality, disability, gender, age, or sexual orientation. We will not hesitate to delete all content or users who promote such kinds of comments.
Name Calling. We’re all beginners here. So remember what your teachers said in school, “There’s no such thing as a stupid question” and treat everyone kindly no matter how innocent or what you perceive as naive their comments may be.
Saying Shit You Don’t Know. Saying Africa is too dangerous to travel without ever traveling there is not the kind of stuff we want to see posted. If it’s a legitamate concern, then yes please voice all your worries. That’s actually what we’re here for. Or if you did have a negative experience, we want to hear that too. We can work through it together. But if you just want to voice your strong unfounded opinion for no reason, then we think that just makes you a dick.
Deceiving or Fraudulent Links. If it’s not a real like, don’t post it. This includes giving links misleading descriptions, putting the wrong “source” field in a post, setting misleading click-through links on images, or embedding links to interstitial or pop-up ads.
Spam. No one likes spam. Seriously. So don’t do it. Act like a human, and don’t add any link or other “spammy” things to comments on blogs, forums, etc.
If you are not following our guidelines, we hold the right to delete your content and/or block you. And that’s sad for everyone! So write what you can say in front of your grandma, and most likely you’ll be just fine.
