About this trip

December in Ghana is legendary.  Hailed as the Gateway to Africa, the holidays in Ghana are jam packed with cultural events from the North to the South.  It's when the Diaspora comes home to enjoy activities that display the heartbeat of Africa  - its music, art, food and culture.  December is also the time when Afrochella takes place.  This annual festival celebration aims to tell the story of Africa through food, culture, music and fashion.  It is a festival aimed at reconnecting the Diaspora to Ghana.  Our tours are uniquely a combination of culture and tradition.  Party, yes, but imparting the culture and tradition are a must.  Your tour will be hosted expertly guided by the founder of HIM Tours, Daniel Okoe Okpoti, a tourism professional with more than 20 years experience guiding people around Ghana.  A native of Ghana, Daniel is also an expert trader and jewelry designer. On this side of the water, the US tour coordinator will handle all pre-trip planning  to make traveling to Africa easy.

Itinerary

The History
Welcome to the Motherland

Welcome to the Motherland.  We will begin the day with the Accra City Tour.  We will visit the Kwame Nkrumah Museum and Park to see the life and works of the great Pan-Africanist who led Ghana to independence from British Colonial rule to become Ghana’s first President. From there we will continue to the Black Star Square, commissioned by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the place where most major events are held in Ghana, including Independence Day celebration held on March 6.  We will end the city tour with a visit to the W.E.B. DuBois Center, one of Ghana’s most famous expats. After lunch we will check into our hotel rooms and our next stop will be DeBlessing Organization to donate our school supplies.  Yes, before "turning up" we will ground ourselves in the history of the first country on the African continent to free itself from colonial rule.  We will return to our hotel to relax, refresh, and get ready for a late dinner and nightlife.

HIM Tours Ghana
I traveled to Ghana for the first time in 2019 during the historic Year of Return. I loved Ghana so much that I visited three more times that year. The history, the culture, and the people captivated me so much that I joined HIM Tours Ghana as the U.S. Coordinator to help bring more people home. I am veteran homeschool educator and lifelong learner. I am passionate about helping others to make the pilgrimage back home to the Motherland and especially through a Ghanaian-founded tour company.
