About Cousin Trips

Cousin Trips is a boutique tour operator and travel consultancy that specializes in creating memorable travel experiences to destinations in Africa and the United States.

Cousin Trips began as “Cousin’s Trip” an annual summer vacation Samimah coordinated for her nieces and nephews to visit popular and off the beaten path tourist spots. “The children had fun and learned valuable life lessons while on vacation.”

We pride ourselves on providing meaningful, cultural experiences that leave life-long lasting impressions in the hearts and minds of our travelers.

Today, Cousin Trips offers unique international and domestic destinations for youth and adults. “We’ve camped in the Smokey Mountains, did morning stretches on Myrtle Beach, and toured the Slave Dungeons in Ghana, West Africa!”

Samimah Aziz is the oldest of nine siblings, a Howard University graduate, a mother of two, a businesswoman and a cousin to dozens.

Samimah has managed several businesses in her lifetime. The first was her family owned Book Store where she coordinated annual Book Fairs in ten US cities. She was instrumental in opening a travel office in Ghana, West Africa where she coordinated tour and business group travel to Africa.
