Join Black Travel Worldwide as we head to Ghana for Beyond the Return. Return to the motherland and dive into her rich history while bringing in the holidays in a melanin rich country. With this package, we combine an educational and immersive experience with the ultimate #blackgirlmagic #blackboyjoy turn up lituation.
It's the best of both worlds.
WELCOME TO GHANA!
An air conditioned vehicle will be waiting for us at the airport to take us straight to our private villa. Once everyone is settled in, our Ghana trip commences with a Christmas Eve party. Get to know your fellow travelers and prepare yourself for an EPIC 10 days in Ghana.
Wander through the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, Independence Square and W.E.B. DuBois Centre to learn about the Pan African culture, the history of Gold Coast and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. In the afternoon we visit the Arts Centre, where you can watch the production of weaving baskets and other handcrafts.
After a day of exploring, we spend the night together celebrating Christmas with a Christmas dinner/ Secret Santa.
Today, we show out! The experience we've all been waiting for. Put on your best African print/ African inspired clothing and we make our way to AFROCHELLA to celebrate Afro culture.
For those of us who are still pumped from Afrochella, we venture out to experience Ghana's nightlife
Today is for you to do as you please.
Ghana nightlife Part 2!
Visit the Kakum National Park, which is one of the famous national parks in Ghana. Enjoy the view from the Canopy Walkway over 7 bridges & tree tops at 40m height. Stop at Elmina and watch the busy and colorful fishing harbor! Continue to Cape Coast Castle, which was used to hold slaves before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas, especially the Caribbean.
Start your day with a guided walking tour through Jamestown and watch the busy and colourful fishing harbour. Wander around the Makola Market and learn about Ghanaian cooking ingredients and spices! Later we participate in a Ghanaian cooking class. After learning about local cuisine we enjoy a local meal together!
First we visit the Assin Manso Slave River. Then we visit a typical Ghanaian village close to Cape Coast. Be welcomed by the elders of the village and watch a typical cultural performance by the women and children of the village. You will be guided to the vegetable farm and the cocoa plantation, which is the main source of income for the village population. Get a taste of the typical village life in Ghana while fetching water from the nearby river. Visit the school project and say good bye to your new family before we continue our way back to Accra.
Today is for you to do as you please.
After a day to ourselves, we bring in the New Year as a squad!
Now that we rang in the New Year properly, it's time to relax and enjoy a day at Krokobite beach. End off our last day with a themed farewell dinner. One last night of turn -up before we head back home.
Our group will enjoy one last breakfast before we say goodbye to our home for the last 10 days. Take in some last minute sightseeing or shopping before our private transport takes us to the airport for our flight home.

Visas: Citizens from United States of America are required to obtain a visa prior to arrival. If you are not from the U.S, please ensure whether you need a visa or if you are visa exempt. Click here to find additional details specific to your country.
Vaccinations: All visitors to Ghana are required to show their yellow fever vaccination certificate on arrival. If you are unable to get one in your home country, you can get a vaccination shot in the airport at a surcharge. However, this is a last resort, as there is some uncertainty with taking this method. We'd rather you not risk your trip and money, so it'd be best to try and get it in your home country first. Click here to find a list of clinics where you can get your shot, as well as other vaccinations you can get prior to traveling to Ghana. If you are allergic to the vaccine or can't get it for other medical reasons, you should be able to provide a waiver from your doctor. We recommend going to your primary care physician first before you get any vaccinations.

A negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of the departure date is required for ALL travelers, no exception. If you begin to feel sick after a test is taken but before the departure date, please notify us immediately.
Travel Insurance is mandatory for EVERY traveler, no exception. Due to the unstable nature of travel at the moment, Black Travel Worldwide is making it a requirement to purchase travel insurance, at the time of booking, for ALL of our trips. We want to ensure all of our travelers are protected and covered in the case of emergency. If there is anything Covid has taught us, it's better to be safe than sorry.
We can provide you with travel insurance or you can get it on your own and submit proof of purchase. If the credit card you use to purchase the trip provides you with travel insurance, you'd simply have to submit proof.
Payment & Refunds
A minimum deposit of $150 is required at time of booking until May 1st. After May 1st, the deposit amount will be increased. Registration will remain open until completely sold out. After that point a waiting list will be created for those interested, in case of drop outs. If you submit a registration form without a deposit, your spot WILL NOT be reserved.

Once you receive your invoice for the month you will have 7 days from the date the invoice was sent to make the payment, or else your spot will be forfeited.

If the new price is higher than the original price and as a result, you chose to opt out of the trip, we will allow a refund to be processed.
Black Travel Worldwide highly recommends purchasing cancel for any reason travel insurance at time of deposit.
