The Republic of Ghana is a country in West Africa whose southern border is located on the Gulf of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean.  With an area of almost 100,000 square miles, the landscape varies from coastal savannahs to tropical rain forests and supports diverse wildlife, impressive waterfalls, caves, mountains, rivers, and lakes.  The country is rich in history and tradition; its many castles and forts are listed collectively as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

With Lakani, take an unforgettable expedition-like journey across Ghana, visiting historic and beautiful castles, and colorful local markets; exploring natural wonders; and becoming immersed in the rhythms, rituals, dances, and Royal ceremonies that define the traditions of this extraordinary land.

Begin in the capital city of Accra, deemed one of the world’s greatest places to explore in 2021 by Time Magazine.  Drive along the coast to Elmina Castle, the oldest European building in Africa, built by the Portuguese in the 15th century.  Travel inland to the Kakum National Park, home to the longest and highest rope bridge in the world.  Visit Cape Coast Castle, built by the Swedish in 1653.  Journey to Kumasi, the spiritual capital of the old Ashanti Kingdom, once one of the most powerful nations in Africa, and home to the special Akwasidae Festival.  Then continue to Akosombo on the edge of the Volta River, where the crafting of glass beads and a special ceremony await.
