Ghana holidays

Colourful, handwoven kente cloth is richly layered, deeply traditional, and has strong associations with tribal chiefs and kings. In short, it’s the perfect symbol for Ghana. In this little West African nation, you can meet a village chief, track wild elephants, bask on a tropical beach, learn to dance or drum and participate in Ashanti festivities, but Ghana holidays are really about the little things: the warmth and hospitality of the people, and sinking into “Ghana time”.

Cultural history holiday in Ghana
Visiting compounds and seeing the real Ghana. Great to meet the locals and see how they lived. Also: river safari with the hippos; tree top rainforest walk; learning about the slave trade .... and much more. (more)Nicholas Wilson
The best part of the holiday was visiting Wechiau, a rural village in northern part of Ghana; our driver cooked a meal for us on open fire, the whole Lobi tribal community got together and danced for us. (more)Amy Sakai
What part of my holiday wasn't memorable or exciting?? If I had to pick something, I would have to say hanging out with the Lobi villagers around Wechiau. They were all so kind and generous and had great senses of humour. I also loved the Kakum canopy walk, despite a mild fear of heights. (more)Amy Lippincott
From £750 - £1299 excluding flights
Ghana holidays, eco lodge with village tour
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 holiday I've ever been on! Great for solo travellers. 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 holiday was memorable! One of, if not the best holiday that I have ever had. (more)Beth Macnab
From £280 excluding flights
Ghana, Togo and Benin cultural holiday
Memorable parts? Travelling through the Somba country and seeing their fortified Tata houses - simply amazing! Tips? 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. Local benefits? I do feel that local people benefited from our visits, particularly vendors selling local handicrafts. Overall rating? I had one of my most eye-opening trips - and I... (more)Mark Langer

Ghana cultural tours
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? We only went for... (more)Chris Pountain

Ghana coastal trekking holiday, Cape Three Points
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? Allow more time for travel around than you would think! Local benefits? Our holiday definitely... (more)Margot Cronin

Ghana cultural, wildlife & nature tour
Memorable parts? 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. Tips? I don't think anyone else would book this holiday as it was a personal journey for me, but I would advise both travellers... (more)Maggie Bligh

West African history tour in Ghana
Memorable parts? I went to Ghana wanting to explore more of its history, and, as a black person to better understand the European slave trade and the place from which so many of our ancestors were shipped away to the Americas and continuing subjugation. The visit to the places in which enslaved people were chained and held was both harrowing and absorbing. Visiting the burial ground of Kwame Nkrumah and seeing the places from which Ghana's independence was launched was moving; learning more... (more)Josephine Kwhali
From £750 excluding flights
Ghana wildlife safari
Our holiday was interesting, we saw a big part of the country in 10 days and several animal sanctuaries which was our main target (monkeys, hippos, elephants). (more)Marita Vihervaara
Getting right up close to the elephants on a foot safari in Mole National Park and sleeping under the stars in a remote village in the hippo sanctuary was the most memorable part. (more)Paul Watts
