Building schools, protecting rainforest, having a sustainable positive impact locally
Ashanti would like to think most travellers care about the locations they visit and about having a positive impact during their time in each destination.
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 Ghana’s only travel company putting their profits back into the communities we visit building schools and establishing youth training programmes for locals that did not have the opportunity for an education.

We Offset Your Trips Carbon Footprint
We plant 3 indigenous forest tree species for every guest 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).
