What is Africa With Us?
Africa With Us is your premier travel team for curated, all inclusive trips to the continent of Africa.
We provide one of a kind trips that will immerse you into the local culture through music, dance, fitness, food, community service and authentic cultural experiences. You learn interesting facts and history about the host country and have a fantastic, worry free time.
When you travel with Africa With Us, once you reserve your spot on one of our trips, we take care of everything else. When we say “all inclusive” we truly mean “all inclusive” with flight, food, accommodation, transport, activities…everything…all included.
We work with the Boards of Tourism for each country, local businesses that we have long standing relationships with and top tier vendors to ensure that each trip is safe, unique, fun and worry free.
Who is Africa With Us?
Africa With Us was created by a Ghanaian mother and daughter duo: Kukuwa Kyereboah-Nuamah, Founder of Kukuwa Fitness and Cassandra Nuamah, founder of Wellness with Coach Cass.
Their combined mission is to promote the fit and healthy lifestyle in order to make it contagious and do so through dance, fitness, and travel. But not just any kind of travel, it is travel African Style!
Kukuwa and Cass bring Africa to the people through music and dance in their African Dance Workout, Kukuwa Fitness. And they bring the people to Africa through specially created and fully curated all inclusive trips to Africa developed by Africa With Us.
Africa With Us began out of their deep rooted and pure desire to share more than the African music and dance in class, but to actually have people experience the beautiful continent of Africa first hand through authentic cultural experiences.
In addition, through the Africa With Us platform, we give back to each country we visit by volunteering for community service and supporting local businesses.
