For many African-Americans it seemed like traveling there was off-limits but now, not so much. Timelines are filled with travelers that have gone and seen the homeland that hosts the rich heritage that many want to indulge in and since 2019 is the “Year of Return,” acknowledging the first slave ship departure 400 years ago. Ghana features high on the list as it hosts a huge event called Panafest. Tanzania was another popular country that travelers want to visit. Although the east African country has some very strict LGBTQ laws, there are plenty of things to do. Take a trip to the Serengeti National Park where tourists can visit all types of wildlife or prepare to hike up Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. South Africa has been on many travelers’ radars for a while now because of their lavish beaches and AfroPunk being hosted there. Morocco is filled with exotic gardens and beautiful mosques; it’s a prime location for romance and to explore spirituality.
