Home is not where we live. Home is where we belong.

African/Black people around the world are searching for their family connections. They are working to heal the traumas of history and gain new perspective regarding their ancestors and the multitude of accomplishments that have never come to light.
In America, many races know the stories that have been told regarding slavery and the brutalities of the time but many have never been able to tell the true story of their ancestors prior to what is written in the American History Books. The murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and many other black people throughout our immediate and past history has brought current day African/Black people to a new realization and to a new uprising and thirst for ancestorial knowledge. It has also spurred people of all races to search for destinations of true acceptance and equality.

I have never felt more of a belonging than I did in visiting Ghana and Kenya. The people of these African countries are warm and inviting and like Americans they have a story to tell.

During my journeys, there was a true moment when I realized that all I saw were others that looked just like me. Everything I saw, from the art on the walls to the business dressed entrants into the breakfast area of our hotel looked like me. A peace and comfort of belonging without pretense came over me and I truly was speechless and emotional.

Ghana and Kenya hold truly a special place in my heart after my visits and I feel that no matter your race, creed or color, you must experience the true continent of Africa and see its beauty and learn the stories based on facts and historical landmarks. I promise that you will be forever changed.

Join us for an amazing and immersive journey to Ghana where you will reconnect with the motherlands at a local level and be able to truly tell your story.

*This journey will be very immersive with much physical movement and often very emotional. This journey is not for the faint of heart.

“Akwaaba!” Denoting “welcome,” this word actually means “you’re welcome to this place” in various dialects of the Akan language.

Returning to Ghana, our ancestral home, Allows us to return our ancestors spirits to the motherland!

Many of our kinfolk were captured and enslaved and brought to the oldest European building in existence, the Elmina Castle. Merchants worked with raiders to forcibly take our African kinfolk and to sell them into slavery. Our kinfolk were shackled, bond, abused, starved, beaten and mutilated.

The dungeons of Elmina Castle were dark, damp, and reeked of death. Those that tried to escape were whipped, castrated, muzzled, placed in metal collars, feet cut off and/or hung. They were often kept in these dungeons for weeks and months and then when the ships arrived they were forced to exit through the infamous “doors of no return” never to return to their mother land but with our return, their spirits are returned through us!

Join us in returning our ancestor’s spirits back to the motherland!

General Ghana Information

Vaccinations and Medication

The basic vaccination/shot needed to enter the country is Yellow fever. Please ensure to take the shots and any other shots required of you or recommended by your doctor. Please try to bring your Malaria Medication and do take it as instructed to. Do come along with Mosquitoes or bugs spray and use it. Please refer to CDC.gov for additional vaccination recommendations.

Food, Drink and Cuisine

Water sources should generally be regarded as being potentially contaminated, and water used for drinking, brushing teeth or making ice should have first been boiled or otherwise sterilised. Inexpensive sachets and bottles of purified water are readily available throughout the country. Milk is unpasteurised and should be boiled. Powdered or tinned milk is available and is advised. Avoid dairy products which are likely to have been made from unboiled milk. Only eat well-cooked meat and fish. Vegetables should be cooked and fruit peeled.
International food is available in most large hotels and many restaurants serve a range of local traditional foods. Note: Most Ghanaian foods are Spicy. In Accra there are also restaurants serving Middle Eastern, Indian, South East Asian, French and pretty much every other international cuisine you can think of. The country’s largest concentration of eateries lies along and around the main drag through Osu – known locally as Oxford Street – where you could literally eat somewhere different every night for a month. Fast food outlets are also well represented in upmarket areas such as Osu and the Accra Mall.
Outside of Accra, a fair selection of cuisines is represented in the likes of Kumasi, Takoradi, Tema, Cape Coast and Elmina. The most popular international cuisine is Chinese, which seems to find its way onto even the most unimaginative hotel restaurant menus.
Alternatively, wherever you are in Ghana, local food can be eaten in small restaurants known as ‘chop bars’, where you will generally be served with rice or a local staple together with a portion of meat or vegetable stew. Almost as ubiquitous (except in a few small and very Islamic settlements in the north) are small local bars known endearingly as ‘spots’. These usually serve inexpensive chilled lager-style beers in 750ml bottles (brands include Beer and Club, all with an alcohol level of around 5%) as well as inexpensive draught beer (called bubra) in the south.
Tipping is permitted; it is not usually included in the bill.

Climate and Weather

Ghana has a typically tropical climate thanks to its proximity to the equator and low elevations – the entire country lies below 1,000m (3300ft). Daytime temperatures are high throughout the year, approaching or surpassing 30°C (86°F) on most days, and humidity is also very high, especially along the coast. Temperatures tend to drop to around 20°C (68°F) drop at night, more noticeably in the relatively dry north than the humid south. The most temperate part of Ghana is the highlands area flanking the Volta Basin, which is often pleasantly cool after dusk.
There are two rainy seasons: from March to July and from September to October. Rainfall is highest in the south, with some areas receiving in excess of 2,000mm each year, but the drier north more typically receives about 800mm annually. The capital Accra, together with the coast running east to Togo and Benin, lies within the Dahomey Gap, a tract of savannah that receives relatively little rain and divides the Upper Guinean forests (running westward from central Ghana) from the Lower Guinean forests (running southward from Nigeria southward to the Congo). A noteworthy climatic phenomenon is the Harmattan winds, which blow in from the northeast from December to March, bringing dust from the Sahara and reducing visibility to as little as 1km (0.6 miles).

Clothing and Dress

Light and loose is the way to go in this humid tropical climate. Bring light trousers or skirts made of a natural fabric such as cotton, combined with a stash of cotton T-shirts, and plenty of socks and underwear, also ideally must be made from natural fabrics to prevent fungal infections. Ghanaians are relatively relaxed about dress codes, but women should keep their shoulders covered and wear a skirt below the knees in the predominantly Muslim north. One sweater or sweatshirt should be adequate, since night time temperatures are seldom chilly. As for footwear, a good pair of walking shoes with solid ankle support is a must, Sneakers, but you’ll also want sandals. If you forget anything, don’t stress: there is a massive used-clothing industry in Ghana, and having new clothes made from local fabrics is quick and affordable.
