About this trip

Did you know every year in Accra there is a well known festival to celebrate art, music, and dance in the form of performance both formal and informal.

The festival targets exchanges between scores of local and international artists and patrons by creating and appreciating art together. 

Welcome to The Ghana Experience and CHALE WOTE

This was my 1st international travel since the pandemic started. As I'm sure you can imagine, I was experiencing a lot of anxiety. But when I tell you that CJ and Craig made this experience phenomenal...BELIEVE IT!!! I've never traveled with a large group of strangers. I now consider this group my extended family and I'm looking forward to future travel with this awesome group of amazing humans. Thanks Craig and CJ for getting my 2022 off to a beautiful start. You guys are the BEST!!! Darniece - St. Louis, MO

This was an amazing trip! From the prep before the trip to my arrival at the hotel and all the in between, this trip was so well organized. As a woman who travels alone, I felt at ease knowing CJ and Craig were looking out for me every step of the way. My main purpose was to see this beautiful country and experience the history  and culture in village of Palenque; however I left with so much more. We are living in a time where there is a heightened need for self care and genuine connection. I left Cartagena with forever friends/family. Thank you Travel Junkees! I can't wait for the next trip.

I had a better than expected time! Craig & CJ were extremely accommodating, concerned, and worked hard to ensure every guest had an incredible experience. I’m excited about the new relationships I formed and look forward to traveling again with my traveling family. A few observations I’d like to offer is that a printed agenda would be very helpful moving forward; also, I’d like to see dedicated personal/shopping time added to the agenda. More importantly, I’d like to encourage you to consider getting some help; I believe an executive assistant is needed to take some of the weight off you guys. Y’all were doing way too much(in my opinion). Overall, I had a super great time and look forward to my next trip with Traveljunkees and Journey with CJ. Great job guys.
