10 Black Travel Influencers You Need To Follow On Instagram
Welcome back to the Preparture blog. This month, we’re celebrating Black History Month properly, and what better way to do that than to give you 10 of the best Black travel influencers to watch and follow in 2022. These women are travel connosseurs, and their content is on fire, so let’s see how they can inspire us to travel in the next year.
Gabby Beckford classes herself as a Gen-Z travel influencer and digital nomad, and with 54k followers in her pack, it’s easy to see where she can make big claims like that.
Beware, travel envy will occur as soon as you set eyes on Gabby’s Insta page, which is full to the brim with azure waters and skies, and architecture yellowing from the intensity of the sun. Tropical beach destinations are rife on this page, as well as tours around historic cities and plush jungles.
Follow @packslight to discover HOW and WHY to travel in 2022 – and let your dreams inspire you.
Ciara is a pro at female solo travel if that’s what inspires you. Much like Gabby, she’s here to show you the HOW and WHY for traveling in 2022. Get ready to feel inspired to run away immediately to somewhere hot and sunny, and to only wear your bikini or swimsuit the entire time.
Ciara started her journey in Houston, Texas, and it now trotting around London for some winter city fun. While we can’t imagine she’s getting much sunshine in the UK right now, we’re intrigued to discover her favorite spots and follow her along on her journey. Female solo travel is something we’re pretty passionate about, so we’re always keen to learn new things about how it can be done… especially when the journey looks like Ciara’s.
Ashlee is also currently in London Town, but her bio promises that next on her list is Jordan, Paris, and LA, and we’re here to see them ALL!

Shay’s enigmatic smile cuts through all her ‘gram photos. She’s a Cali native exploring the world whenever she can. And while our other Black travel influencers are mostly bright photos of aquamarine seas and skies, Shay’s approach is more down to earth, with darker tones running through her colour schemes. She mahnages to capture the beauty of the ocean, the forest, and the city in a different light, and we love her approach.
This account is full of inspiration for traveling the globe, and we love following her on her journey around the globe.
Our second Shay from the list escaped her 9-5 to travel the world, and she wants to show you how you could do it too.
