Come and be part of beautiful Cultural Festivals of Ghana


Akwaaba - means Welcome to Ghana, 'The gateway and Heart of West Africa'. Join us on an unforgettable journey into a land rich in history, tradition and culture - a land whose people are noted for their warmth, friendliness and hospitality. From the legendary Ashanti Kingdom of gold to the vibrant streets of Accra, Ghana's capital, you will see unspoilt virgin beaches, historical sites steeped in sad, inhumane histories, bustling markets overflowing with exquisite arts and crafts. You will experience cultural drumming and dancing that will touch your very soul in its intensity. Ghana's history stretches almost 2000 years, to the riches of the ancient Ghana Empire. Abundant trade in gold, ivory, salt and kola nuts existed between Ghana and other African states and this eventually led Europeans to the shores of Africa and to the country known as the Gold Coast. Come, relax and enjoy Ghana's culture, beauty and warmth.

Akwasidae Festival

Participate in the Akwasidae festival. The Akwasidae is a religious festival of the Asante's which is celebrated every six(6) weeks or 42 days. On that day the Asante king comes out of the palace on a palanquin adorned in gold ornaments to receive the homage of his sub-chiefs and people. It is a very colorful ceremony that lasts the whole day and it is held at the Manhyia palace which is the Asantehene's residence. The celebration marks a period of stock taking and fervent assessment of events in the life of the Ashanti's. It serves as a period to propitiate the ancestors through whom the Ashanti Unity gains its grounds.

These and many other interesting places will be visited throughout the duration of this tour.
