October TBD, 2021
A 8 Day, 7 Night experience that will show you the best of Mother Africa
Join Black Travel Fest in Kenya!
You’re invited to take a magical journey through one of Africa’s most prized tourist destinations. October TBD, 2021 we will be reconnecting with our African roots as we explore the best of Kenya. For eight days and seven nights, we will discover what draws millions of tourists to Kenya as we get a taste of city life in Nairobi, get up close and personal with cast from the Lion King with a two day safari in the Masai Mara, and turn up at one of Kenya’s most exclusive beach resorts in Diani Beach. Most importantly, we will develop deep and lasting connections with likeminded travelers. It will no doubt be the experience of a lifetime!
This 8 day, 7 night itinerary is sure to delight!
Take some time to settle into your accommodations while enjoying a bit of Kenyan hospitality. Just be sure to arrive well before 5pm if you’d like to attend our special welcome dinner event.
Hopefully you’ve saved plenty of room in your tummy for a carnivorous dining experience. There will be no judgement as you delight yourself with a variety of exotic and not so exotic grilled meats at one of Nairobi’s most famous restaurants. Just don’t eat too much because we’re headed for a night on the town with a bit of club hopping in Nairobi’s popular Westlands nightlife district.
Prepare for a day of up close and personal interaction with giraffes, elephants, and if you’re lucky a baby Rhino. We’ll get a somewhat early start as we visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage then we’re visiting the Giraffe Center for a once in a life time experience.
We’ll be enjoying a variety of traditional Kenyan foods at one of Nairobi’s most acclaimed restaurants, but don’t worry Kenyan cuisine is a delicious medley of everything you already love. You’ll also have the opportunity to experience a live band during this unique dining experience.
Take a roadtrip from Nairobi to the Masai Mara, with several interesting stops along the way including a short shopping break. Settle into your safari lodge and enjoy a late afternoon game drive where you’ll have your first opportunity to spot some of your favorite animals.
Let the mystery of the Masai Mara lure you in with a cozy bush dinner complete with a surprise performance.
Start your day with an early morning game drive. There’s truly nothing like watching all of the animals of the pridelands coming to life to start the day. We’ll be on a quest to see the entire cast from the Lion King, though it’s unlikely that we spot Rafiki. On this day you’ll also have the opportunity to visit a hippo lodge and chat with real Masai warriors.
Later in the evening we’ll enjoy a delicious dinner prepared by our chefs followed by a lively late night bonfire.
Today we’re headed to Diani Beach, Kenya’s most posh beach town, but first you’ll board BTF’s own soul plane for an exclusive melanated in-flight experience. Once we arrive in Diani, you’ll love the fine white sand and beautiful blue waters. You’ll check into your amazing all inclusive digs, and start living the high life.
You can enjoy a variety of offerings at the resort including nightly entertainment, an open air nightclub and more.
Take it easy while you enjoy a variety of activities around the resort during the day. We’ll also have a few very special activities available for your enjoyment (more details to come).
We’ll have a special themed event, and this year we will be dishing a prize to the best male and female costumes. So, be ready to bring your “A” game!
Are you ready to put on for the camera? Well today we’re gearing up for a unique BTF themed photo shoot. Then you’ll be taking the day at your own pace and enjoying all of the amenities your resort has to offer.
Dust off your finest African attire as we take part in a very special beachside gala, where we will enjoy local performances, grab every instagrammable moment, and turn all the way up.
Excited for your next journey?

This experience is
for you if you:
love the beach
enjoy eating local foods
want to meet new people
are open to new cultures
We’d absolutely love to have you! But, if your ideal vacation involves relaxing on the beach daily and sleeping in this experience is not for you. Although, we do incorporate individual exploration and relaxation time into our itineraries we do more than the average group.
