About this trip

Panafest is the Perfect time to visit Ghana! The biennial festival is observed every two years to celebrate people of Africa & African Decent. This is a beautiful homecoming celebrating heritage and culture!


The year of return marked 400 years since the arrival of the 1st recorded landing of a slave ship in Virginia, which launched the acceleration of the horrendous Middle Passage Trans-Atlantic Slave trade. The Green Book travel team is excited to lead a triumphant voyage, specifically for travelers of African Descent, welcoming you back HOME during one of the most preeminent festivals  of Ghana. “The Return” to the MOTHERLAND is here!


Our journey gives you an excellent opportunity to mix with locals and interact with traditional rulers and the people of this wonderful country. Immersing yourself in Ghana’s diverse culture and traditions is an experience that will live with you forever. We will be exploring Ghana's finest regions: Accra, Cape Coast & Kumasi- known for their rich and colorful culture, tradition and diversity.  This historic pilgrimage will be a Grand Homecoming! 


Our 11 day, 10 night trip is packed full of adventure and culture. You will be captivated by the legendary history and extraordinary culture and customs that are almost undiluted sprinkled in with a few extra surprises. The Return will be a trip of a lifetime. We look forward to hosting your journey!

This trip was amazing. The cultural immersion, the tours, and even the food exceeded expectations. The itenary was vast and gave me a lot to explore while in Sengal and The Gambia. From walking with lions to drinking cow milk with Fulani tribesmen, Africa never disappoints. Kennedy, my tour guide, delivered exceptional service and really eliminated any concerns I had prior to going on the trip, during the tail end of a pandemic. Her curations of different venues we stayed at, to her being my professional photographer for my epic pics... she does it all and really makes it a point to provide a great service. I'm looking forward to my next adventure abroad with Green Book Travel !!!

I had a great time. It was pretty comprehensive and we explored so many regions of Ghana within the week long trip. The tour guides were nice and informative. Ghana is a beautiful safe country and all that take this trip will enjoy the richness of the culture.

I had the absolute best time bringing in the New Year with Greenbook Travel in Ghana. I loved their attention to detail, quality itinerary and authentic cultural experiences. We were given ample time to connect with the locals, ask questions and participate in beautiful photoshoots to commemorate this incredible journey to the Continent.
