Reviews for Ghana, Togo and Benin holiday, gold and magic


review 30 Aug 2016

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

The festival for the local king in Kumasi on day 11 was a highlight. Another highlight was a visit to a village of semi nomadic people on day 9. They had a sort of water festival that day. Around 100 women in color full dresses carried a jar of water on their head, singing, and emptied the water in front of their chief. Visit to the slave forts and to several markets were very interesting.

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

Do not have high expectations about hotels or restaurants, but be prepared for a lot of experience and adventure.

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

Hard to say. As we stayed in local hotels and had a local guide and driver, we contributed to give jobs to several people.

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

A very good trip, which I can recommend.
