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 combined with the fun of Brazil!!!

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 Black Conciousness Day & Afropunk. We invite you to honor the legacy and resilience of Blackness, enjoy the beautiful beaches of Rio, get mesmerized by the rhythms of the drums. This will be a trip of a lifetime!

Our 10 day, 9 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 took the Roots Heritage Tour in Gambia with Green Book Travel and it was an AMAZING experience. My main guide Assam was so knowledgeable. The tour was very well coordinated from my hotel pickup to every stop throughout the day to the highlight of meeting Alex Haley and Kunta Kinteh's real life descendants. They pay attention to the smallest details to ensure your comfort throughout the day. As a solo traveler this meant a lot to me. Communication was great and timely throughout the booking process. They even remembered and recognized my birthday. :) Do yourself a favor and seek them out for your travels. It was truly a quality experience.

I had the absolute best time bringing in the New Year with Greenbook Travel in Ghana. I loved their attention to detail, quality itinerary and authentic cultural experiences. We were given ample time to connect with the locals, ask questions and participate in beautiful photoshoots to commemorate this incredible journey to the Continent.
