To appease my wanderlust at times when I’m not out exploring the world, I follow a number of travel pages on Instagram.
However, I found that a lot of the pages I was following only showed one type of traveller.
I rarely, if ever saw someone who looked like me. Someone that I could relate to.
That’s why I think it’s so important for black people to follow black travel Instagram pages. Although we may not (or rarely) be included in the mainstream pages, we have been able to create our own mainstream.
Today there are so many pages sharing beautiful and inspiring pictures of black men, women and families travelling.
Because, yes we out here living our travel dreams too! 💁🏾♀️
So, I’ve put together a list of ten black travel Instagram pages that you need to follow to keep your wanderlust alive:
Travel is the New Club doesn’t only share beautiful travel pictures, but they also have a great sense of humour.
To be featured, use their hashtag #travelisthenewclub
2) Travel Noire
Travel Noire is one of the first black travel Instagram pages that I followed. It’s been very exciting and inspiring to witness the phenominal growth of this brand.
Soul Society is another page that is helping to connect black travellers and they also have a podcast featuring special guests.
