After our welcome dinner in the epicenter of Nairobi’s urban life, we'll head to Kenya's Swahili coast. Specifically, Lamu, the oldest and best-preserved Swahili settlement in East Africa, retaining its traditional functions. This UNESCO World Heritage site has a rich history and culture that fills every street. We'll be hosted in the nearby Shela Village in a luxury multi-storey villa with a full staff and personal chef, where we’ll enjoy the freshest food you’ve ever tasted (we promise).

"My maiden adventure to Ghana was fantastic and Girls Trip Tours was outstanding in their effort in arranging our comfort, well being, and enjoyment. I am accustomed to luxury travel and was impressed by how well this young entrepreneur, Eyitemi, set out with purpose and forethought to create extraordinary experiences and weave in women's empowerment and positivity about the Motherland."

Ask me anything

I'm Temi! i created girls trip to connect women of the diaspora to the African continent in an impactful way through well-curated travel experiences. Leave me a message if you're interested in this trip.

Girls Trip Kenya 2019, we stayed here!


Girls trip was the time of my life! At first I was a bit intimidated by the high cost. However, during the trip with our personal photographer, the endless meals, and all-day driver made every moment perfect. I loved the mentoring aspect of the trip and still keep in touch with some of the girls. This was my first time in West Africa and it made me so excited to return. There was so much inspiration, self-love, and joy surrounding this trip. Temi was a great host and it was even more exciting to get to meet the local influencers."

"There's nothing else like Girls Trip out there. When people ask me why I went to Ghana, the best simple explanation I can come up with is "tourism." But that doesn't even begin to do the trip justice. You are not simply a passive tourist on this trip. You are an active participant in a global sisterhood. You forever become linked to women of all ages from multiple African countries and the diaspora that are all working in some way or another to inspire and lift one another up. I am in awe of my experience and it will shape my life for decades to come."
