All too often, traveling while Black means keeping your guard up. You’re not sure you can trust your surroundings because of how some people in the world view and treat people with our ethnic and cultural background.
Melanated Travel aims to deliver experiences where you can let go and truly feel the connection and joy that travelling should represent for all people.
We founded our company to serve the needs of Black travelers because -- as Black travelers ourselves -- we understand that Black travel at its core is stepping out into the world while bringing your full self.
Melanated Travel allows you to do that - plus take a break from all the planning and worrying.
Taking a trip with Melanated Travel means you’ll be greeted everywhere like family -- because we are family. We offer a range of travel experiences from Budget & Bougie to Black Luxe in our signature destinations such as Cuba, Kenya, Brazil, Guatemala, and more.
We take the time to get to know your travel style, your wants and needs, and your budget; we capture these as the backdrop of every moment of planning your trip. Your travel experience is then tailor-made from our network of trusted, curated lodgings, restaurants, night clubs, local guides, and activities.
Our team has nearly 30 years of experience bringing Black travel dreams to life. So, pack your bags for a place you’ve never been, with people you’ve never met, and wake up somewhere new with all of the comforts of home. #mindofblacktravel #wegotyou #youdeserveabreak #melanatedtravel #notnewtothis
