Zafigo is all about empowering women to live their best lives.

Born from a love for travel in 2014, our name was coined from, “Safely, I go.” We have since grown into a safe space and global community for women with the aim to nurture a love for discovery!

Welcome to our Zafigo community, a community that inspires, encourages, and empowers women to explore the world on their own or with friends. I hope this finds you all safe and well. It seems incredible how far we’ve come since we began in 2014. Not only have we developed our website to provide you with as much information on the many places to go and how to get there but we’ve also adapted ourselves to the ‘new normal’ that we are all facing today.

While we wait for the travel and tourism industry to recover, we at Zafigo aim to keep your holiday dreams alive with stories and tips to inspire you and suggestions for ways to discover your own country. We also have plans for some exciting events to connect with the Zafigo community, They’ll be fun and informative, and hopefully a great way to meet other women with the same travel dreams as you.

Thank you again for joining us. See you soon!

What We Do

When we’re not busy seeking new experiences and travelling the world, we’re here writing about it.

Creative Content

There’s never a dull moment at Zafigo. We have thousands of articles covering everything from travel news and city guides to inspirational interviews and lifestyle features.


We love throwing parties! From casual gatherings on ChickChat to weekend-long ZafigoX events, Hello Zafigo online sessions, and workshops. There’s always something happening at Zafigo.


We’re more than just adventure seekers, we’re knowledge seekers too! BRB Busy Reading Books is a podcast hosted by Marina Mahathir that explores the world through books.

Life has a funny way of taking you places; one such place it’s taken me to is Zafigo. After a short hiatus from publishing, I was excited to find myself in the industry once more. This time, it’s with a group of talented, passionate, and creative individuals. As a team, we believe that travel should be a source of inspiration and connection for all, and through our stories, we hope to encourage readers to pursue their own adventures and make meaningful connections.
