Reviews for Cultural & wildlife holiday in Ghana


review 19 Jul 2022

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The Eastern area of Ghana is the prettiest and most interesting area of the country. Loved the scenery. Highly recommended to visit. Well worth visiting the CedŪ bead factory that is tucked away. My driver didnít seem to know where it was but thankfully I had a guide book with me that helped us locate it!

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

I just did a 2 night/3 day tour since I had already explored the rest of Ghana. I canít really recommend the travel agency since they got my dates wrong, changed the itinerary totally without letting me know which resulted in us back tracking and generally didnít seem to know the area well in which I was touring. There didnít seem to be a lot of communication between the driver/guide and the agency. I was meant to be kayaking on day 2 but the kayak agent said they had no reservation for me. The agency made no effort to solve this and so I was unable to go kayaking. I had booked solely with this agency to have a stress free few days but ended up trying to solve itinerary issues with the driver. I probably would have taken a couple of extra days to enjoy the mountains and waterfalls in that area as well as visit the highest settlement.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Stayed at a local resort near Wili waterfalls and used a couple of local guides to visit the monkey sanctuary and the falls.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Despite some problems with the itinerary I did manage to get to see most of the things that I wanted to do. Loved this part of Ghana but I wouldnít use this particular travel agency. 5 stars for the places I saw but just 2 stars for the agency.
