I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
I really really had a very great time at the lodge. The place itself is just paradise and I find it very difficult to say what I liked best about it! (more)Astrid Seidel
The best vacation I've ever been on! Great for solo travelers. I was looked after the whole way from the airport to Dzita and back again. Having my own private guide was brilliant and all the activities were amazing. I experienced the real Ghana. (more)Lesley Boyle
Every part of this wonderful vacation was memorable! One of, if not the best vacation that I have ever had. (more)Beth Macnab
The most memorable part was probably walking around the busy streets of areas like Accra Old Town, Osu and the centres of Cape Coast and Elmina. There is always something to look at amongst the crowds and you feel safe and are not unduly bothered. Particularly enjoyable was a visit to a local high-life band’s concert in Cape Coast. And we were very interested in a couple of meetings we had with academics about Ghanaian culture and history.
We only went for... (more)Chris Pountain
We loved all of it but highlights would include seeing how different life in Ghana is from ours; chatting to the people, especially the children; trekking along the beautiful coastline; watching the baby turtles make their way to the sea; seeing the beautiful old ruins of the former days; and seeing the cocoa farms...
It gave us a great insight into life in Ghana.
Allow more time for travel around than you would think!

Many interesting experiences - Shai Hills reserve, cocoa farm, kente cloth & adinkra, elmina fort. Purpose for me was to re-visit my childhood beach at Busua which will stay with me for another 53 years - finding the family of people in a photo from 1962 was very special.
Loved seeing the countryside, the flora & fauna, and meeting local people.
I don't think anyone else would book this vacation as it was a personal journey for me, but I would advise both travelers... (more)Maggie Bligh
The festival for the local king in Kumasi on day 11 was a highlight. Another highlight was a visit to a village of semi nomadic people on day 9. They had a sort of water festival that day. Around 100 women in color full dresses carried a jar of water on their head, singing, and emptied the water in front of their chief. Visit to the slave forts and to several markets were very interesting.
Do not have high expectations about hotels or restaurants, but... (more)Annie Krefting
We experienced many memorable events but the Voodoo Festival in Ouidah, Benin was the most exciting. It was very colorful and spontaneous. Numerous people went into trances and engaged in wild dances.
Don't hesitate to go. It will surpass your expectations. Don't worry about security. It felt very safe. But be ready for heat and humidity.
Local people obviously benefited a little from the money we spent and it's possible that... (more)Frank Keen
Traveling through the Somba country and seeing their fortified Tata houses - simply amazing!
Just go ahead and book it as the itinerary covers so much of West African culture, with particular insights into voodoo practices and life inside remote tribal villages.
I do feel that local people benefited from our visits, particularly vendors selling local handicrafts.
I had one of my most eye-opening trips - and I... (more)Mark Langer
