Ghana promises to be a  week to network, relax, immerse in culture.  We will of course have some luxury accommodations, with some meals included.  


Also, it goes without saying that we will be enjoying the night life, daily.  


So , with that said - are you ready ?!?!?


NOTE: Travel insurance is mandatory for every MTT experience.  Click here to purchase.    

TERMS & CONDITIONS

By booking you adhere to all the terms and conditions of Melanin Travel Tribe, LLC - www.melanintraveltribe.com

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Due to the nature of costs and contractual obligations, Ghana payments are non-refundable if cancelled less than 90 days in advance.  


Please ensure that you have travel insurance to be able to reimbursed for cancellations after this time.   It is recommended that you purchase travel insurance, no less than 30days after your initial payment for this trip.

IMPORTANT FAQs & ANSWERS

VISA REQUIREMENTS:

You will need  visa to enter Ghana and you can only obtain this via the embassy in Houston or Washington, DC.  It is your responsibility to secure your visa, and it is recommended that you do so no less than 30days after your initial deposit for this trip.  Visa applications can take up to 21 business days for completion and you must mail your passport in with the application.  There is an option for an expedited process, please see the embassy website for details.


PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS:

Passports must be valid for at least 6 months, and contain at least one blank page for entry into Ghana.


VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS:

As of this posting, the only vaccines required for entry are COVID19 and Yellow Fever.   Again both are  MANDATORY.


Once you receive your Yellow Fever (YF) vaccination, you will receive a card as proof of vaccination.  Please keep this secured and handy as you will need it in order to be allowed entry into Ghana.


As of this posting, the CDC notes that YF vaccination doses are in short supply, so it is recommended that you obtain this as soon as possible.  YF is typically a covered (travel) vaccine, but you can check with your insurance company.  


If you are unable to get vaccinated due to medical reasons, please consult with your medical provider for any clearance and necessary paperwork. It is solely your responsibility to obtain all pertinent and legal proof of vaccine exemptions and have them ready for inspection in the US & Ghana, as needed.  

 

ROOMS & ROOMATES:

Rooms are either double occupancy (2 beds to a room) or single occupancy (1 bed to a room).  


Roommates can be assigned if one is needed or you may comment in the blank section of your booking, if you have someone identified.  For comfort, we primarily book double occupancy as a maximum.   


However, if you wish to add a 3rd or 4th person to your room, you may do so at an additional cost, via special requests.  Please note extra beds will not be added to rooms under any circumstances, and anyone being added to your room will be sharing a bed with another guest. 


Triple and Quad room requests are only for KNOWN individuals and will not be done for "strangers" - i.e. 3 or 4 people who do not know each other, will not be authorized to share a room and beds.


FINALIZED ITINERARY & DETAILS:

All noted inclusions are deemed final, best as possible.  However the world changes daily.  In the event that any edits need to be made to accommodations, experiences, etc., replacements will always be of similar caliber.  The itinerary that is deemed 100% final will be provided 30days before departure.

I love experiencing different cities. With that being said, I had a great time while visiting San Francisco and other surrounding cities. I enjoyed the tours, the food,, the company, and all of the other activities I took part in outside of the itinerary. I also loved the hotel we stayed in. San Francisco is a beautiful city. This trip was very well organized. Kudos

This was my first trip with the Melanin Travel Tribe and it was awesome! The tours, the sights, the food...oh the food! I loved the fact that we had set activities during the day but were free to do what we'd like afterwards. The sisterhood was felt while on this trip. The only thing I wish was having more time to enjoy San Francisco! I'm very grateful for the experience and can't wait to travel again with this tribe!

We had a great time, taking tours, seeing the local sights, learning about the city’s history and eating AMAZING food! Our hotel was very nice and in a great location for eating and shopping as well. I really enjoyed the whole trip.

We had a great time! Barcelona and Morocco are must visits. There were plenty of activities and something for everyone on the trip. The riad/hotel in Morocco was special as we had our own rooms. It shows the level of detail and added luxury given on the trip. Everyone on the trip was open minded and absolutely lovely. Great travel partners. This was my 2nd international trip after Covid and getting tested, flights, etc was easy to navigate. Thanks for a fantastic and memorable experience.

Such an Amazing trip! All the activities were terrific, from the lunch at the Effiel Tower, boat ride on the Seine River, and tour of the French Rivera. And although we had so much to do, I appreciate the downtime built into the itinerary, which made this trip relaxing. Also, the hotels were clean, comfortable, and centrally located. Highly recommend traveling MelaninTravelTribe.

I went on the San Fran &amp; Napa Valley Summer Soirée trip. With absolute pleasure, I write this recommendation for Sas, who coordinated the trip, including the excursions, transfers to and from the tours, and hotel reservations. As Sas, as your host, I am sure  she will be able to attain the highest level of customer satisfaction and make sure your trip experience is amazing.
