Planning 2023 travel without a companion? Find your people in a Black travel group
No companion necessary—if you have your documents together, go ahead and book a vacation with one of these top Black travel groups for a great escape!
Is travel topping your list of resolutions for 2023, but you foresee rolling solo? Among the best things to come out of the social media era are Black travel groups. For generations prior, Black leisure travel abroad seemed elusive—sure, celebrities traveled for their jobs, military personnel was actively based all over the world, and there were ample opportunities to study abroad. However, the picture wasn’t as clear for Black travelers who wanted to travel for leisure, luxury, and fun. Social media threw open the door for the Black diaspora to explore their curiosity about other countries without media bias—and to engage with Black travel groups as a means to get out there and explore in person.
These days, Black travel groups are spaces for Black travelers and aspiring travelers to connect, whether through Facebook, travel agencies, travel blogs, or IRL meetup spaces. We’ve all heard (or experienced) cautionary tales where folks start planning a trip, and in the end, only the planner with the most intention makes the journey after everyone else drops out. By contrast, the best aspect of Black travel groups is a mutual intention, education, like-mindedness, and seriousness about global exploration.
