RIO DE JANEIRO
SALVADOR DA BAHIA
MARCH 12-20, 2022
Partnering with Black Traveler, I present to you a South American adventure to Salvador da Bahia, Iguazu Falls, and Rio de Janeiro. With this trip, you will get a chance to explore two cities and one of the seven natural wonders of the world.
Africa meets South America right in Bahia. We will start our journey discovering African roots in Bahia through religion, music, and dance. We will also spend time visiting the main cultural and
historical sites, including hidden places that only locals know. We can't leave town without a dance lesson and a great performance!
RIO DE JANEIRO
Let's start with an African culture and city tour for a true Rio welcome. We will be sure to explore all the major spots like Christ the Redeemer, Selaron Steps, Santa Teresa, and Sugar Loaf Cable Car. Of course, free time to explore the many beaches and neighborhoods. Don't miss out on the optional samba lessons!
