December in Ghana 1 2023 (Banner (Landscape)).png

Accra, Ghana

December 2 - 9, 2023

There's no better place to spend December than in Ghana

Want to join in the December in Ghana craze but you need more cultural immersion and connection to the continent mixed in with all that partying? Then this trip is for you!


We will visit W.E.B DuBois Center, Independence Square, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and other notable Accra sites. We'll journey to Cape Coast and visit the infamous slave dungeons and Assin Manso, where enslaved Africans took their last bath before heading to the dungeons to await ships to the Americas. All this will be combined with a taste of the inexplicable beauty of Ghana and it's people, food and rich culture. It's sure to be a life-changing experience.

Details, Please

This 8-day/7-night Ghana experience is perfect for both the first time visitor as well as someone who has been before but has yet to experience a December in Ghana. On your first day in Accra you will be greeted at the airport by our friendly and welcoming transfer partners. The evening will be your official "Akwaaba" Welcome Dinner experience.

Day two will be an enlightening and inspiring City Tour of Accra which includes some lesser known sites along with all the iconic monuments and buildings in the capital city. Don't get too tired, because the night awaits us! We'll spend our evening enjoying some of the famous Accra nightlife!


Day three takes us to the capital of the Ashanti region: Kumasi. Day five will include a city tour of Kumasi and a visit to local craft villages where we learn the process of kente-weaving and the meanings behind the traditional Adinkra symbols used by the Ghanaian people. The next day we'll take a tour of Kumasi and visit one of Africa's largest indoor/outdoor markets-Kejetia Market.

Day five takes us to Cape Coast where we will trace the steps of our ancestors at Assin Manso River, where enslaved Africans would take their final bath before being transferred to the coast and await ships to carry them to the Americas. We will then visit one of the infamous dungeons, Cape Coast Castle where you can step through the "Door of No Return." Day six completes the picture of our ancestors with a visit to Elmina Castle. After seeing both castles you can see the differences in the design and structure of such edifices. 

Your time in Cape Coast wouldn't be complete without a trip to Kakum National Park for a walk across the canopies, high above the forest. You'll also enjoy a cooking lesson and naming ceremony for those who would like to complete the "Sankofa" journey with a new Ghanaian name and welcome to the family by village elders.

This journey promises to change you and encourage you to tell others about the incredible experience you've had in the Motherland. While it might be your first time, it's guaranteed not to be the last!
