Rewriting Africa’s narrative

African Independent magazine is a pioneering resource content publication, with its own news website, that seeks to change the narrative of the African continent by presenting the true and deeper stories driving the African sphere.

African Independent magazine has a strong focus on technology, business and investment in Africa, in addition to covering the lifestyles of the biggest industry champions on the continent.

We are focusing on positive stories coming out of Africa and thereby seeking to rewrite the continent’s narrative.

We strive for fair and balanced African stories that dig deeper into the continent’s socio-economic landscape, with a fine balance within the African political context.


African Independent is a bi-monthly, 64-page glossy format magazine, and is published in the middle of the month, with six issues in total per annum.


Copies of the magazine are available at select Pick 'n Pay, Exclusive Books and Spar stores. As well as at the airport lounges at the three major airports in South Africa (O.R. Tambo International, King Shaka International and Cape Town International), and African airports and major hotels in the following countries: Botswana, Kenya, Mozambique, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.


Saarah Survé is the editor of African Independent magazine.
