Description of Cultural & wildlife vacation in Ghana
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetThis tour exposes you to some conservation sites in Ghana.We make sure that we do not leave any thing permanent behind as traces of our tour but rather carry all the litter along as a measure of ensuring environmental cleanliness.At Kakum National Park, we support the local conservation effort by the entrance fees we pay at the park.The fees we pay enhances the effort of the people to conserve the wild life and the park for generations. We want to experience the local environment at it raw so we do not allow our clients on the trip to leave the communities with any flora or fauna - all that you can take is photography.
As a practice of responsible travel, we also encourage our clients to be energy efficient users. All lighting systems in our overnight rooms has to be put off before departure as a measure of conserving energy.We give clients on this trip the opportunity to suggest innovative ways of conserving energy to our local accommodation providers.
PeopleMuch of African tours are about the people and their culture.Responsible traveling is important to us.We travel in groups with experience tour guides who have the local connection.Our site fees are paid to the local people who are the managers of the various places we visit.Not only do we create jobs for the local people through tourism but we as well encourage them to maintain their culture and customs for generations unborn.
We do not patronize accommodation facilities that do not belong to the local people.We enhance our local connections with the local people by eating their delicious local food.By doing so, we leave some money in those commuities we visit.
On day 7, clients are given the oppotunity to purchase the popular Ghanaian kente cloth at Adanwomanse kente weaving village.The kente cloth weavers earn their living from the proceeds of the cloth.They are therefore empowered economically when you buy their cloths.Additionally, all the entrance fees we pay on this trip go directly to the local people who are managers of those sites.This is therefore one of our ways of fighting poverty through tourism.
