About this trip

Join us as we journey to The most African city in the world - Bahia for a celebration of culture 

Combined with Rio De Janeiro- perhaps the most beautiful city in the world! This cultural trip is rich in history and Carnival fun!!!


We are taking you to the places that aren't represented in the travel brochures and mainstream media.  Salvador is the most representative city of Africa  home to the largest population of the diaspora outside of the continent. Deeply rooted and proudly connected to its West African history- Salvador symbolizes the revival of the “Yoruba” culture, an ethnolinguistic group hailing from Western Africa which arrived in Brazil on board the slave-ships of imperial times.


With over 80% of the population from African background we will explore the most Afro-based population in the world outside of Africa. In Brazil we  immerse in culture, cuisine, religion, music, dance, and art- derived straight from the Continent!


What makes this experience EPIC!!!

Our trip is highlighted around the most festive time of the year- CARNIVAL! We invite you to

connect to your ancestry, enjoy the beautiful beaches of Rio, get mesmerized by the rhythms of the drums. This will be a trip of a lifetime!


Our 8 day, 7 night trip is packed full of adventure and culture. This trip is powered by Black Travelers the premier Afro Brazil Experts curated with a emphasis on the African diaspora, customs, music and ceremonies of local communities and beyond.


We look forward to hosting your trip to Brazil!!!

I had a great time. It was pretty comprehensive and we explored so many regions of Ghana within the week long trip. The tour guides were nice and informative. Ghana is a beautiful safe country and all that take this trip will enjoy the richness of the culture.
