About this trip

Escape to the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar. Located in East Africa, in the Indian Ocean this is a getaway that will blow you away. If this is your first visit to the beautiful continent of Africa or your umpteenth time, well what an introduction to something you’ve never experienced - a true gem awaits! From the deep vibrant culture, to the incredibly friendly people, to the crystal blue ocean (it is in the same ocean as the Maldives), delicious food and the abundance of fun exploring to be had…You may want to become an island babe and stay by the end of the trip.

When I first visited Zanzibar, I instantly was in awe, I never experienced such paradise in all of the places in the world I have been to. Water so clear you can see your future! The hospitality is unmatched. This is a trip to truly let go, relax, explore and be surrounded by like minded women all gathered for the love of travel, good vibes and cute pics 🥰

Not only will you make friends who you’ll keep in touch with, you’ll have the ease of learning and exploring a new destination without the hassle of planning and navigating - I got you!

If you came here from my Instagram then you know a little about me already. I am Nessa, British Nigerian and a bit of a nomad. I have visited 44 countries, lived in 5 different countries and speak 2.5 languages (working on that half language!). I started sharing my travel experiences in depth, over 8 years ago and since then I have created a travel community of women who I feel so connected to. I launched group trips as a way to share the experiences and love with others! I hope to see you soon on one of my trips 💛


Nessa is an incredible host. She is excellent under pressure and has the agility to pivot quickly. Beyond that, her spirit is very welcoming to all and is a great source for travel information. I would highly recommend traveling with her! She will take very good care of you.

Went on a trip to Italy with Nessa and 9 other ladies. I had an amazing time with the group. The accommodations were beautiful and all the ladies got along so well together. I’m already looking for the next location I’ll be taking with Nessa.

I had an amazing time on this group trip to Italy! Nessa is such an amazing host, she made sure that we are able to see the “tourist sites” but also experience authentic Italian places where there weren’t as many tourists. Accommodation was excellent, Nessa was super flexible with the itinerary, so if we wanted to do something else, she was always open to suggestions. I met so many incredible people on this trip and created memories that I’ll never forget! I’m looking forward to the next trip!

This trip was the most incredible 2 weeks! The itinerary was well planned with a good range of cultural activities, day trips, rest/relaxation days, and also was flexible enough to accommodate some extra requests we had. The hotel was stunning, the group of women were lovely and Nessa was a very attentive+organised host. It made the trip even more enjoyable and stress free not having to do any of the planning. It was my first group trip but definitely won’t be my last! Thank you Nessa 😊

As a black woman who previously had reservations around traveling abroad alone, I’m so so glad I pushed myself to travel to Tanzania– Zanzibar with Nessa was a trip of a lifetime! I had the misfortune of my airline losing my luggage. And I was PANICKED, okay? But Nessa helped me the whole way. She took me into town to get enough clothes and toiletries for a couple of nights until my luggage eventually arrived. Other ladies in the group were also incredibly kind and loaned me items as well. What could have put a damper on my entire trip ended up only being a tiny moment. I can’t overstate how refreshing everything was: the sisterhood, the culture, the vibes, the beauty of the island ✨ And now that I have one solo trip under my belt, I’m ready for the next one 💪🏾 Highly recommend one of her group trips if you can snag one!
