Digital Nomads in Africa

With 2,200+ members from across Africa, and around the world, we have the biggest community dedicated to digital nomads in Africa. Get the latest honest, up-to-date, local knowledge, connect with fellow nomads, find the best coworking spaces and tour companies – and much more.  

The Best Coworking Spaces in Africa for Digital Nomads

Africa is full of fantastic coworking spaces, from Cairo to Cape Town to Conakry.

However, most don’t suit digital nomads. They’re more focused on corporate clients or social impact initiatives. If you’re looking for community, events, and group activities – you might be disappointed. 

So, I compiled a list of the best coworking spaces in Africa for digital nomads. To create the list, I asked our African digital nomad community for their top picks, and used my experience working remotely on the continent since 2016. 

Without further ado, here are the best coworking spaces in every region of Africa – tailored to nomads.

Each location lives up to the brand’s reputation for modern, comfortable, well-maintained spaces focusing on community. They’re also incredibly cheap compared to some rivals. 

If you just need a shared desk for the day and don’t want to spend too much money, WeWork is a great choice.

A beautiful coworking club in Lusaka’s most popular boutique hotel. I spent a day working here, and enjoyed jumping between the indoor workspaces, outdoor lounge and pool, and cafe. The decor is a delightful mix of traditional African and contemporary touches, with plenty of quiet workspaces and meeting rooms.

The staff is super friendly, and the hotel’s restaurant has a fascinating menu. Try the crocodile, if you’re so inclined. 

Honestly, The Works was the highlight of my trip to Lusaka – which was otherwise unremarkable. 

East Africa

17. Hive Colab, Kampala

I worked from Hive Colab all the way back in 2016. It was my first time in Africa, managing a backpacker hostel for 6 months. I would come to Hive Collab when I needed a break or more reliable internet. 

I honestly can’t believe it’s still open, and don’t know what to expect these days. But when I worked there, it was simple, functional, friendly, and safe in a convenient location. 

18. Circular Design Hub, Kampala

Circular Design Hub Kampala offers a collaborative coworking environment for diverse professionals, from entrepreneurs to tech startups. 

Emphasizing the economic value of creativity and ‘design thinking,’ it’s a comfortable workspace for independent startups and consultants, promoting sharing, engagement, and collaboration between members.

The location is a bit far from central Kampala, but easily accessible with an Uber. There’s an in-house cafe, with a gym and shopping mall closeby. So, once you arrive in the morning, you can easily stay in the area all day.


19. BlueSpace, Addis Ababa

BlueSpace is a modern coworking space in Addis Ababa’s popular “downtown” area, Bole. It’s comfortable, brightly lit, and has everything you need for a productive day. 

My favorite thing about BlueSpace is the daily coffee ceremony. Everyone is invited to stop working and join a traditional coffee break with your coworkers. You sit in a big circle and chat aimlessly for as long as you choose, then return to work. Amazing!
