Finding Black Travel Experiences is HARD

Have you ever been travelling and enjoying a country but you have a moment where you suddenly feel disconnected. You notice the African contribution has been minimized or removed. We get it! For you it’s more than just a trip...it's about belonging and connecting with your roots.


We recognize the absence of our people and our stories in tourism. It's time to change this. What's at stake is more than just missing out on unique Afro-cultural experiences; it's missing the chance to deepen your understanding, create meaningful connections and celebrate your heritage.

Afro-centric means to “focus on or be influenced by Africa or cultures of African origin”.

Our itineraries are focused on highlighting the way the African diaspora has been able to preserve the strong African culture around the world while creating their own. Through activities on our itineraries, including trying local food, listening to different types of music and hearing their stories… you will see firsthand how connected we still are. 

Our tours are designed from scratch. We take Black people to Black countries and communities.  We’ve gone into places, to meet with locals and seek out experiences specifically for you. We offer group travel for people of African descent to bond with each other. Including fellow Escapaders and the cousins we meet along the way. Our goal is to deepen cultural connections in a celebratory and prideful way.

Meet the Co-Founders

It hasn't been a direct path getting to Experience Escapades. We often reflected on our own travels while listening to the concerns and questions of friends. And at the end of these conversations, we realized their travels didn't always bring the fulfillment they expected. So, we strive to change this, specifically for Black people.

What if we told you, we’ve created a way for Black people to travel together, to Black places solely for the purpose of celebrating Afro-culture. Our multi-day, group trips are more than just sightseeing; it's about connecting, celebrating, and belonging. Every part of our journey, from the interactive experiences to the carefully chosen destinations, is designed to honor and elevate our Afro-heritage.

Welcome to Experience Escapades, where every adventure is a soulful celebration of our roots!
