Blending Chess With Experiential Tourism We bring people from all walks of life, ages, and backgrounds together
in some of Africa's most beautiful settings to share a common
bond and passion for the game of chess.

Checkmate for Leisure

TCA offers a pleasant opportunity to blend the game of chess with a reason to vacation and travel to Africa’s most exotic destinations while also supporting socio-economic empowerment through community-based tourism. We advocate for sustainable tourism, which serves the demands of today’s tourists, the tourism industry, and host communities without jeopardizing future generations’ ability to fulfill their own requirements.

In our quest of sport leisure, we try to achieve the following objectives:

SDG 15

Make the most efficient use of natural resources when conducting our recreational chess events, while simultaneously conserving vital ecological processes and contributing to the preservation of natural heritage and biodiversity.

SDG 16

Respecting the socio-cultural authenticity of host communities, preserving their built and living cultural heritage, and contributing to intercultural understanding and tolerance.

SDG 1, 8 & 10

Assuring long-term economic viability, delivering equitable socio-economic benefits to all stakeholders, including steady employment and income-earning possibilities, as well as social services to host communities, and contributing to poverty reduction

How it Works

  • Every quarter, we conduct a four-day international chess tournament at a specially chosen exotic tourism site in Africa.
  • We invite like-minded chess enthusiasts from all around the world to come and play in the various categories of basic, intermediate, and advanced chess.
  • We collaborate closely with the local population and initiate community-based activities that promote sustainable development principles and values.

Joining our chess leisure community is a terrific chance to experience some of Africa’s most beautiful holiday destinations while also connecting with a lot of other like-minded people who share your passion for chess. By registering formally with us, you may ensure that your stay at the destination will be less expensive, reducing also the demand for preparations an individual must undertake ahead of time.
