AFRICA'S CULTURES
YOUR INTEREST, OUR PASSION

At Trips by Greg, we connect you to Africa's people.  Her traditional elders and her young trendsetters. The music, the food, the art, the fashion.  First-hand, all-in, hands-on.

We work with experienced local guides proud to share their homelands with you, and handle your logistics before you even arrive. You only have to enjoy your African journey -- and start planning your next one.

Because once Africa gets into your soul, she will call you back.
