Ghana Cultural Tour
Akwaaba! Welcome to Ghana, “The Gateway and Heart of West Africa.” We invite you to join us on an unforgettable journey into a land rich in history, tradition and culture – a land whose people are noted for their warmth, friendliness and hospitality. Ghana’s history spans almost 2000 years, to the riches of the ancient Ghanaian Empire.
Abundant trade in gold, ivory, salt and kola nuts between Ghana and other African nations eventually drew Europeans to the shores of West Africa and to the country known as the Gold Coast. From the legendary Ashanti Kingdom to the vibrant streets of Accra, you will find virgin beaches, bustling markets, and historical sites steeped in sad, inhumane histories.
In Ghana, you will appreciate exquisite arts and crafts and experience cultural drumming and dancing that will touch your very soul with its intensity. Come, relax and enjoy Ghana’s culture, beauty and warmth.
