December in Ghana: For the Culture(d)

Ghana

December 27, 2021 - January 2, 2022

Dare to do December in Ghana differently

We believe life is to be LIVED to the fullest! And after you've had to cancel your entire 2020 calendar and even finding yourself hesitant to make any 2021 plans, you deserve a top-notch travel experience to bring in 2022 with style, culture, music and uniquely Afropolitan hospitality.

Are you well-traveled?

An epicurean?

A wine lover?

An afrobeats connoisseur?

An African culture aficionado

If you answered yes to any of those questions, then this Group Getaway is expertly curated just for YOU! 

Details, Please

This unique Ghana Group Getaway is not your typical tour of Ghana. When curating this trip our objective was to come up with the best, most authentic, and impactful experience possible for those with only one week to spend exploring the country. We're a bit biased, but we think we did a pretty darn good job! But don't take our word for it...keep reading.

 

After arrival you'll check-in to your upscale hotel accommodations and then we'll start the experience with our classic Akwaaba (Welcome) Dinner at a local restaurant known for high-end West African and Caribbean fusion cuisine. We'll welcome you as only the Oheneba Events & Travel team can and prepare you for a life-changing week ahead!

While in Accra you will visit some of the city's most iconic sites such as Independence Square, historic Jamestown, Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and W.E.B. DuBois and Pan African Center. There's some surprise stops along the way so be prepared for *anything*! In the evening, we'll enjoy tapas and a Ghanaian Chocolate & Wine Tasting event.

We believe in choices so you can decide where your tour takes you next. Will it be Kumasi-the center of Ghanaian heritage and traditions OR Cape Coast and Elmina-the bridge that connects Africans in the Diaspora? Have dinner with a local family or make your own Ghanaian meal during our Cooking Classes. Whichever you choose, rest assured your authentic cultural exchanges will be one of the highlights of your time with us.

We'll meet back in Accra just in time to ring in the new year in style! Boldly Black will be our private dining NYE experience that begins our evening out on the town. The whole city will be jumping and we'll make sure you're in the VIP line at the most sought-after events of the night.

The first day of the New Year starts with even more choices. Sleep in and enjoy the hotel amenities or take an Art & Shopping Tour around the city. We'll stop at some of Accra's most eclectic art galleries and unique retail shops. End the day with our exclusive African Fashion & Food Farewell Dinner and photoshoot.  On our final day, rest a while and then join us for Sunday Brunch before heading to the airport to catch your flight home. 

*Itinerary subject to change as music festival dates are announced. Stay tuned.
