Let's do it again!
Kenya and Tanzania the repeat
You are invited to get away for the breath in the fresh air that comes with going to places with Black faces.
East Africa is more than wildlife and the image of poverty shown by western media. Most tourists go to East Africa for the animals, we are going for the people and culture.

June 14th to 22th 2022, you are invited to join us in Kenya and Tanzania.
Bustling and full of life, Nairobi is the colorful capital Kenya. From its vast national park and, amazing museums, rich local cultures, shopping, vibrant open-air nightlife and a progressive multicultural streets scene, Nairobi will not disappoint.
Dar es Salaam (Place of Peace), Two-hundred years ago, it was regarded as the center of the East African slave trade. Today, it is known for its famous spice plantations, history, and diverse culture. Nightlife often centers around the joy of eating and socializing, never too far from a relaxing sea breeze. Dar es Salaam (Dar') is the former capital of Tanzania and the largest city in all of East Africa and the fastest growing. Residents of Dar es Salaam are generally more well-off than rural residents. Dar es Salaam has a poverty rate of only 4.1 percent, compared to 33.3 percent in rural Tanzania. According to a 2013 report by Oxford Economics, no African city will lift more residents into the middle class by 2030 than Dar es Salaam. The future the mega-city is looking bright.
Zanzibar, the semi-autonomous I archipelago off the mainland coast of Tanzania with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters is a melting pot of African and Indian influences. Some consider Zanzibar the the heart of Swahili culture and tradition. Two-hundred years ago, it was regarded as the center of the East African slave trade. Today, it is known for its famous spice plantations, history (Stone Town being the capital) and diverse culture. Nightlife often centers around the joy of eating and socializing, never too far from a relaxing sea breeze.
We may have a new name and new look but all of our tours will still have that Fleace Weaver and BlackGirlTravel magic.
As always, expect to be wowed!.
