Our local experienced event and programme coordinators in addition to our award-winning tour leaders are carefully selected and receive regular training. Having so many local guides experts in all the flora, fauna history and culture of West Africa enables us to offer a wider portfolio of tour itineraries whilst ensuring the quality of service. Professional, personable, fun, and knowledgeable guides add so much more to your clients’ experience during their time with us.

Local DMC with a Real Sense of Purpose

Ashanti would like to think most international tour operators that send groups to West Africa care about the locations they visit and about having a positive impact during their time here.

Booking with a responsible travel company goes a long way to achieving this. Many companies state they benefit locals and conservation when they do extraordinarily little and are more focused on their profit margins. Ashanti are West Africa’s leading travel company putting their profits back into building schools, protecting wildlife, rainforest, biodiversity and connecting communities to the conservation of their environment through community development initiatives connected to eco-tourism.

Multi Country Tours

We Offset Your Trips Carbon Footprint

We plant 3 indigenous forest tree species for every tour participant that travels with us.

The main aim for this project is carbon offsetting - guests choosing to travel with us would offset their flights to/from Ghana by more than 15 times if the trees live to their expected lifespan. This is based on projected carbon dioxide generated on a return flight for the average guest (approximately 900kg/1980 lbs). The average tropical tree can absorb approximately 48lbs of carbon per year (when mature) and in Ghana it takes 30-50 years for a tropical tree species to grow to maturity, with an average life expectancy of 200-300 years. If the trees we plant for each guest are continued to be protected, then we are confident that we will be making a big difference in carbon offsetting: 3 trees planted would each absorb approximately 10,080 lbs of carbon, totalling 30,240 lbs/13,745 kg for all 3 trees (per guest).
