We’ve been home for a while now and usually this it’s the time of year when my mom and I begin planning a vacation but that’s out the window now. I’ve been getting my fix from travel bloggers. So here’s 5 black female travel bloggers who make me want to travel.
So let’s virtually travel, why don’t we?
Lee Litumbe ( Spirited Pursuit)
I only recently found Lee, on Pinterest and boy oh boy do I love her. She says, the lack of representation of Africa as a travel location is her reason for doing this. In her words : “Africa needs more Africans to tell the world her story”. Lee quit her corporate finance job and moved back to Africa and begun traveling the continent, inspiring!. Lee also has published a few guides to discovering different African countries. My favorite is her Quick Guide to Discovering Gorée Island, Senegal.

I came across Ndapanda on Twitter, on a thread showing of the best lodges in Namibia, so I found her blog and I was hooked. Ndapanda loves Africa and it’s evident in her photos and from how she speaks and writes about Africa. She also loves a good bottle of Merlot and that makes here even more so my kind of girl.
That’s all folks. I hope you enjoyed traveling virtually with these amazing women, like I have.
