Snapchat is the perfect platform for travellers to sharing quick raw videos of experiences as they happen. The app has changed so much recently and if you still think its for sending people pictures they definitely don’t want to see then you have an awesome surprise waiting for you if you decide to download it.
I am not going to go into all the details of how snapchat works in this post so just believe me and get it on your phone asap to follow some ultra cool people that will give you serious wanderlust!
Before I start my list of 8 travel snapchat accounts you have to follow let me introduce my own one ( because obviously you need to follow me as well 😛 ) My username is CAMPSBAYGIRL which is the same as my instagram handle and you can add me by scanning the code above or CLICKING THIS LINK.
I snap a lot of sunsets, mountains and pretty epic views! I also tend to snap my cats when I am home and some behind the scenes goodies. Thats enough about me though, just go follow and find out what I get up to here in Cape Town, South Africa as well as the rest of the world.

Mike is a travel and lifestyle blogger and photographer that also happens to be my boyfriend so I might be a bit biased! He travels quite a bit and goes on some amazing adventures that he always tries to capture on his camera as well as snapchat. At the moment he is in Kenya and about to start an epic adventure into Ethiopia with a South African adventure legend and Humanitarian, Kingsley Holgate.
USERNAME – BDESTINATIONS
You probably follow Beautifuldestinations on instagram and if you want to see what the team behind the account get up to ( let me give you a hint… LOTS OF TRAVELING! ) then you need to go ade these guys right away. Showing us some super gorgeous locations all over the world but also keeping a fun element to it.
USERNAME – CHRISBURKARD
I don’t know about you but I am obsessed with the amazing photos Chris Burkard takes. His photos will make anyone pack up there bags and travel the world! If thats not an option then you can follow him on snapchat and at least get to experience some of the amazing places he travels to.
USERNAME – TRAVELBREAK
I first followed Stephanie on Twitter and I absolutely love all of her accounts. She runs the highly successful site Travel Break and is always going to awesome places and eating amazing food!
USERNAME – THEBLONDEABROAD
I am lucky enough to have met Kiersten when she was visiting Cape Town earlier this year and she is such a sweetheart. She definitely has fun with her snapchat, showing off outfits and exotic locations but also keeping it real with funny behind the scenes snaps. She also has a youtube channel so go follow her there as well if you feel like her snaps are just not enough!
USERNAME – LESLEYMURPH
Lesley from The Road Les Traveled was one of the first travel bloggers I really started following and I quickly fell in love with her gorgeous photos. Her snapchat reflects her personality and gives you a bit more of the person behind the pretty instagram pictures which is great!
USERNAME – EKETERINA.EKAT
This girl gives me some serious island envy but thats one of the reasons you need to follow her snapchat. Do you want to see luxurious resorts in Seychelles, Maldives, Bali and more then give her a follow and you will soon be as addicted as I am.
USERNAMES – GYPSEA_LUST & DOYOUTRAVEL
Ok so I am giving you guys two for one over here just because I might have a slight digital crush on this traveling couple. The take unique photos around the world and their snapchat is as perfect as their instagram accounts. I feel like I cant even say anything else about these two, you jusu need to go follow them to see why they are my number one favorites at the moment!
