Join in on our inaugural annual trip to Ghana.
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.
By booking you adhere to all the terms and conditions of Melanin Travel Tribe, LLC - www.melanintraveltribe.com
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.
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.
Passports must be valid for at least 6 months, and contain at least one blank page for entry into Ghana.
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.
Welcome to the motherland. Today, everyone arrives to Ghana for what will be a spirited week of culture, food and experiences.
Check into your room and rest up. Dive into the pool if so inclined.
Later this evening, we enjoy our themed welcome dinner that is filled with Ghanian delicacies and cocktails.
