Girls Trip is a transformative travel experience focused on female empowerment. We host trips to various African destinations with the goal of empowering future female leaders through mentorship, while taking in the sites and dining around town with high profile business women and local industry leaders.

Our uniquely curated travel experiences allow women from all over the world to safely explore an African city with confidence and purpose. Think of it as ‘Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants’ with less soul-searching and more self-actualization.

Join us in one of our 2020 destinations!
