Terrific-Travel Instagram Accounts to Follow

For those that don’t constantly travel or don’t get to travel at all – we can still dream. And browsing through Instagram Travel Accounts has become one of my favourite pastimes.

The following Terrific-Travel Instagram Accounts range from Travel Bloggers and Photographers to Hotels and Tourism Boards.


Meet South Africa

@meetsouthafrica – South Africa’s Tourism account: South African Tourism is the tourism marketing arm of the South African government. Simply put, our job is to promote the country domestically and internationally, whether for leisure, business or events tourism. South African Tourism has made great strides in introducing and marketing South Africa not only to our own people but also, since the dawn of our democracy in 1994, to the world.

#MeetSouthAfrica by going through Simon's Town and stopping at Boulders Beach for an unforgettable experience. This beach is one of the safest and cleanest beaches in South Africa and this is because it falls under the Table Mountain National Park Marine Protected Area. Boulders Beach is perfect for those seeking a beach experience but because we know that you won't come for the sand and water but for the amazing Penguins. This beach is known for the cute penguins that roam around the beach. It is also advisable to visit the beach in summer, this is the right time to see the penguins in action. #MeetSouthAfrica and explore Boulders Beach together with the amazing penguins. Thanks for this incredible image @carla.erin #MeetSouthAfrica #Travel #Travelgram #TravelSouthAfrica #SouthAfrica #ExploreSouthAfrica #WesternCape #ThisIsSouthAfrica

This Wednesday we are taking it back to our We Are Travel Girls Getaway in Malawi. In particular the time we spent on the beautiful, idyllic Mumbo Island. Pure tranquility! This island is pure rustic luxury, with no cell service or electricity it was an amazing opportunity to relax, connect with the group and experience Malawi in a way most never experience. But don't just take our word for it – in fact Mumbo Island was named one of the top 100 places to stay in the world by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine – watch the video to see why!⠀ ⠀ ✧✧✧✧✧⠀ ⠀ We will be doing this all again later this year in October with our @travelgirlsgetaways Safari & Charity Expedition to Malawi and we'd love for you to join us for this amazing getaway.

  1. I love the earthpix account and I have followed it for years. Besides it, I think that ispiring Instagram accounts are really personal. For years I have followed IG local Japanese accounts before heading for Japan and preparing my travel there.

  2. I know and have seen most of them on IG and even on twitter too. They have stunning photos and videos of exotic locales.

  3. I’m following several of these myself! Beautiful photography paired with dreamy locations are always so inspiring! Love the ones you’re suggesting to follow!! Cheers 🥂

  4. Really awesome suggestions, especially when there are so many travel accounts out there and you don’t know who to follow for quality content! Thanks, will be going through through their accounts at leisure.

  5. That’s really some amazing photos and Instagram accounts:) I love floboniface’s account. If you don’t know it you should definitely check it out:)

  6. These are great instagram profiles, but of course yours is the best! This is a fun post to read.

  7. Wow, these are great suggestions, Yeshi. Their photos look amazing, there’s so much to learn from them about framing and setting up a branded filter to edit the photos so that their colors pop. Also cool to check out their caption-writing style.
