the Mission

Girls Trip seeks to facilitate solo female travel in Africa by curating an ecosystem of local and expatriate women who can host or guide female travelers exploring their locales.

Travelers can engage our ecosystem during curated trips or on self-scheduled trips planned using our platform.

the Vision

Girls Trip helps female travelers explore Africa on their own terms, and in exchange, leverages their expertise to impact the next generation of female leaders across the continent through our mentorship program.

Our mentorship program provides high achieving girls around Africa access to life-changing opportunities including interships, business grants, and scholarships.
