There’s a reason Stella went to Jamaica to get her groove back! The food, music, beaches, and “irie vibes” make this Caribbean isle a wonderful place to recharge after a hectic period.

2. Dominican Republic

4. Ghana

Everything about Ghana makes it a top destination for Black Americans. The people, the food, the history, the culture. There’s something to do every night in Accra, whether it be karaoke, learning to dance Kizomba, or enjoying a delicious dinner with friends. It’s also worth the three-hour drive to visit Cape Coast Castle, where many of our ancestors were enslaved and shipped to South America, the Caribbean and the United States. Ghana is known for being one of the safest and most welcoming west African countries. It has a has a murder rate much lower than the United States, and has the 3rd lowest homicide rate in Africa.

6. Paris, France

From the beaches of the Riviera to the cafes of Paris, there’s no better country to practice self-care. Whether you choose to get your sommelier on with a wine-tasting course in Bordeaux, castle hop in the Loire Valley, or simply get swept up in the romance and whimsy of the historical Alsace region, France is where you can relax, unwind, and make everything all about you

7. Brazil

Home to the largest African population outside of Africa, black women will feel at home immediately in Brazil. In addition to its beautiful beaches, iconic landmarks (that means Cristo Redentor or Christ the Redeemer, duh), Brazil is a beautiful mix of diversity that has created its native food, music and culture. Brazil can also be a gateway to see more of South America’s biggest attractions in other countries like Argentina, Peru, Patagonia and many more! Carnival anyone?

8. Japan

9. South Africa

 

South Africa has beautiful beaches, great restaurants, scenic safaris and so much more. But don’t mistake South Africa for just a pretty face. Apartheid officially ended in 1994, so the country is still undergoing a renovation of sorts. Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban are all so amazing, yet all so different so do careful research before you go so you can meet your particular vacation needs. South Africa has an underlying energy that is hard to explain but it’s so magnetic. You may never come home!

London maintains its position as the most popular destination since 2013, followed by Cape Town in second, Dubai in third and New York in fourth. Destinations like London and Dubai are naturally ever-popular among Nigerians as it is easy for them to get visas to these destinations. While destinations like New York is popular, a number of people appear to have been booking flights to Houston and Atlanta. Other top choices include Abu Dhabi, France, China and Istanbul.
“Nigerian travellers favourite destinations are the most popular due to sheer volume of flight bookings. London is a destination most Nigerian travellers visit mostly, for any vacation trip and the city itself is a popular attraction for families and couples; it is also a hub for travellers heading to other destinations outside the United Kingdom.” said Lilian Obinna-Igwe, Country Manager.

 

2. Dubai  300,000 visitors

Dubai takes the least time to get to by flight, just six hours, instead of 14 hours to other destinations.

Take the recent incidence of slave trade in Libya in which many Nigerians were the victims of such trade. Now ask yourself: what would make a citizen in a country that is neither a shithole, at war nor in ethnic cleansing pay good money good money to travel through the Sahara desert in hopes of making it to Europe through Libya? What would make so many people take that risk with less than 60 percent chances of survival? And then refuse to come back even after being rescued at the slave camps in Libya? What kind of disease creates such desperation, if the country was not a shithole.
