Have no idea where to start with a trip to Africa ?

Don't be overwhelmed with planning your:

  • accommodation
  • transportation
  • activities immunizations
  • visa applications 
  • restaurants 
  • tour guides

in an unfamiliar and new destination. 

Now is the time to finally check visiting the Continent off your bucketlist. ✅

We get it- You want a travel company you can trust.

We're here to make the process easy, smooth, organized, and life changing for every person that wants to return home to the Motherland.

"If I had planned the trip based on what I found and researched on the internet, I would have done like half of what you planned for us on our Ghana experience.

Rinsha @rinshaprofit

Certified Africa made my first trip to Africa seamless. I had an experience I would not have been able to plan on my own and it included people that were truly warm, welcoming and inspiring.

Meah @thereelmeah

Testimonials

This trip blew me away. I was excited to visit Africa for the first time and specifically Ghana but I never expected to be so inspired and moved. The Certified Africa founders were ingenious in curating a trip that addressed the many desires people of African-descent may have when journeying back to their homeland. From the traditional ceremonies to the tourism to the exceptional business investment event, I felt honored to be exposed to every facet of Ghanaian culture and welcomed fully. It was more than a trip but an experience that I will cherish for a lifetime.

AMAZING!!!! It exceeded all of my expectations. First class trip all the way…from the airplane to checking back in for the flight. All of the hosts were phenomenal and very helpful.

Tametra Tracy-@tracy_life_wellness

There are not even enough words to describe the amazing trip my Husband and I had with Certified Africa here in Ghana. They answered all our questions and concerns ahead of time and provided all the necessary information for travel to Africa. Once on the ground they gave us days full of culture and love from the Certified Africa staff and the local people of Ghana. If you want to experience Ghana not just Accra. Book with Certified Africa. Thank you again Nii and Kristin and Team for all your hard work. No detail was left out.

Felicia Parsons_ @eklectic_afro

Certified Africa provided more than a trip, it was the experience of a lifetime! We met wonderful people, every day was educational, inspirational and just plain fun. Nii, Kristin and their team were so professional but at the same time, they felt like family. I would travel with Certified Africa every vacation if I could. Thank you for showing us Ghana and making The Year of the Return an unforgettable experience.


Kamara Cooper

Absolutely the BEST trip ever!! Certified Africa thought of everything. Without any reservation, I highly recommend anyone going to Ghana who needs a tour company to choose Certified Africa. 


Joan Passley

I had a great time. Certified Africa did not disappoint and I enjoyed the excursions, parties and fellow travelers that I met. I was able to challenge myself at Kakum Park and the hike to umbrella rock and also learned the history of Ghana thanks to the Certified Africa staff. This was the trip of a lifetime!


Stana Fields

Many of the staff members including the owners were attentive, welcoming, and went above and beyond to make it a great experience for everyone.

I enjoyed my time in Ghana, the experience was phenomenal and one to remember.  The Certified Africa team cares about each attendee, operates with integrity, and will go the extra mile to ensure everyone has a great time.

Lakeisha Matthews

I am so happy that I traveled to Ghana with Certified Africa. I honestly wouldn’t want to travel with another travel group. The coordinators, the travel guides, the experience. Everything was more than I could’ve wished and I felt like I left Ghana with an experience I couldn’t have even imagined.

Tenisha Brown

My experience was special and one that I will always cherish. It should be every black persons goal to set foot on the Motherland at least once... For me, I hope to many times. It was great to have Certified Africa there to facilitate this experience. They did a remarkable job and only added to the amazing time that just being in Ghana brought me.  

Anika Boyce

While on this trip it allowed me to experience and achieve milestones that I never thought to do on my own. Such as crossing the bridge at Kakum Park and hiking up a mountain. It allowed me to embrace my fears and to step out of my comfort zone which was very exhilarating. Thank you for this experience.

Toya Parker

Amazing! Wonderful! Every detail was well planned to make sure the guests had an amazing time. The staff of Certified Africa made us feel like family. Ghana just maybe my favorite African country because of all we saw.

Tawan Parsons

I had a great time on the Year of Return NYE trip to Ghana with Certified Africa! The cultural experiences, learning about Ghana and exposure to doing business in Ghana made it a unique and wonderful experience!

Adrienne Reddick

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and highly recommend you all to anyone that asks. The local experience was priceless!

Enka Robinson

This experience charged my battery to go the height which seemed only imaginable. I left feeling inspired, motivated and an advocate for Black people to take their money to Ghana or any other African country to do business.

Precious McPhee

Certified Africa did an amazing job curating this trip from the welcome dinner down to the personal touches like the special ceremony we were able to be apart of. The staff was amazing in the attention they gave to our group needs. If you are thinking about visiting the country for the first time. I would highly recommend this group.

Troy Martin

I really enjoyed my expedience and throughly loved my time there! Thank you all so much for all the amazing work you did.

Cassie Angu- @thehooddoula

Ghana reminded me of home (Dominican Republic), but even more so it reminded me of how beautiful black people are and how rich in culture we are as a whole.

Rosanna Hernandez

Certified Africa helped my husband and I achieve something we thought was difficult or impossible and that is travel to the Motherland!  Certified Africa held workshops with detailed instructions and steps to get our VISAs, flight tips, the trip itinerary and much more.  They literally covered every question before we asked them.  After the workshop we needed a question clarified and we were able to replay the recording and find the answers.  Certified Africa responded quickly to any questions we had during our preparation for our trip via email and via their app.  We received valuable information on flights, and expected cost that enabled us to budget well and smartly for our trip.  We also received a travel package that offered Twi lessons which will enhance our communication with the local community on our trip.  Certified Africa is very professional and has excellent customer service.  We feel like we are talking with family.  We are so happy we chose Certified Africa to host our first trip to Africa, not just because they provided us with so much valuable information and with essential tools to prepare us for our trip, but because their hospitality is like none other. We can't wait to host more trips with them!!!
