Question about using 'that' with a comma before it, instead of 'and' in a sentence.


Hi, I'm writing a book, and I try to eliminate 'and' where I can. Is using 'that', as I have done below, accepted when writing prose?


'I told him about my American friends, that we planned to travel to Africa together, to the Ivory Coast.'


Thank you!
