JANUARY 23 – FEBRUARY 4, 2019

Ghana, located on the West Coast of Africa with the Atlantic ocean to the South, is one of Africa’s most rewarding and exciting travel destinations. Although a relatively small country, it’s landscape is widely varied, from lush forests in the South, rolling highlands to the East, Savannah to the North and picturesque beaches all along the coast. Ghana is a perfect destination for those who have never visited Africa or those wanting something different from the countries and cultures of East Africa. The first country in Africa to receive independence in 1957, its development has been steady and government democratic. Ghana’s population is English speaking for the most part, and always welcoming to visitors from abroad. As its tourism industry has not yet reached its full potential, visitors will not feel as though they are part of a mass tourism wheel.

Our Ultimate Ghana Tour takes participants throughout the country with visits to some of the most spectacular sites the country has to offer. Accommodations are provided at some of Ghana’s most luxurious resorts and hotels.
