about us

Kidu, a new
way of traveling.
founder & lead editor
Lena Johansson
With a work background in travel business, cultural anthropology and with a passion for traveling, an idea of inspiring to a more responsible and conscious way of exploring the world with the welfare of people, cultures and nature in mind. Tourism is tearing the resources of our planet but we should not and will not stop traveling. We can travel more conciously and with less climate footprint.

We all have our own wishes what we want our trip to be like. That´s why we tailor trips for solo travelers, couples, families, and small groups. When we travel slow and mindfully, when we immerse into the culture,  when we connect, we get a deeper and more authentic travel experience. This is what we want to make possible.

Are You the one we are looking for?


To meet
like equals
We believe it is possible to connect human values, equality and traveling. We do not compromise these values. Through meetings on an equal level and in a mutual interest we can develop an understanding for each other across borders and cultures. Exploring the world showing respect for animals, nature, and for each other is essential to us.

Our Social Impact
A part of the profit of sold trips is donated to Ni Hekima Pekee Organization (NIHEP) and their support work with children and young women in Mwanza, Tanzania.
