Walk in the footsteps of your ancestors.

Get Ready for an Unforgettable Journey!

We can’t wait to get back to Ghana.  Don’t miss your chance for a transformational experience.

Our Ghana Homecoming Heritage Tour welcomes you back home to the motherland, celebrating culture, past and present, focusing on the positive news from this exceptional region of Africa.  We will learn of our ancestral past, explore the modern expressions of our culture, and experience the value of seeing ourselves reflected throughout the country.

We will retrace the steps of our ancestors as they were forced to leave these lands, visit ancient traditional communities to learn the foundations of our culture, and attend a traditional naming ceremony to finally recieve your true African name that you would have received from your ancestors.

We will enjoy the tastes, sights and music of Ghana.  Abound with business opportunity and relocation appeal, you will get all the details you need to take the next steps, if you so choose.


Our tour will feature museums, ancient and ancestral historical sites, African naming ceremony, cultural exploration, as well as a citizenship briefing, and residential tour.

Cape Coast

Assin Manso Slave River, Cape Coast Castle and Transfer to Elmina (2 Nights)

We will make an emotional stop at Assin Manso, a prominent town along the enslaved African trade route where so many of our ancestors from the northern parts of Ghana, Burkina Faso and Niger were marched bare foot in shackles heading towards the coast. The town surrounds the Ndonkor Nsuo (Slave River). This river is where enslaved Africans were checked for fitness and bathed before being transported to Cape Coast for shipment to the Americas.

Location:  Cape Coast, Ghana|  Hotel:  Coconut Grove Hotel  |  Meals Included:  Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Volta Region and Akosombo (2 Nights)

After visiting the historical sites we’ll need time to reflect and process our emotional responses.  The Volta region is the perfect place to relax and re-center.  The beautiful Royal Senchi Resort and Spa offers tranquility, nature, and an ideal setting for restoration.

Enjoy a relaxing spa treatment, boat excursions on the river or cocktails by the pool.  It’s an extra touch of luxury along the journey.
