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.
