Our wide portfolio of African Heritage Tours take you on an inclusive, reflective and intimate journey, reconnecting and returning you to your ancestral roots.
Ghana has an important significance when it comes to West African History, most especially the tragic slave trade era which took millions of Africans against their will to the Americas and beyond. This is evident with over 20 castles and fortifications still dotting the Ghanaian Coastline. With over 70% of all castles and fortifications along the entire West African coastline, from Cameroon to Senegal, being built in Ghana, there is a strong possibility that many of your ancestors passed through or came from Ghana. Your African brothers and sisters will offer you a traditional naming ceremony based on the day of the week you were born, a traditional practice here and a significant part of you returning home. Ghana has a vibrant cultural identity, this cultural diversity is evident with over 75 African dialects spoken in current day Ghana. European settlers were initially lured here by the trade in ivory and gold, but sadly this was soon to be replaced by the tragic trade in human cargo, bound for the rapidly increasing number of plantations in the Americas. Ghana was the main centre for exporting enslaved Africans and it was at a far greater rate than any other West African country. Our journey gives you an excellent opportunity to mix with locals and to interact with traditional rulers and your people as you return home.
