About this trip

Please be sure to follow us on Instagram and join our Facebook community group: Jelani Women Travel

Jelani Women Travel is excited to offer its first travel experience since the start of the pandemic. Ghana has recently opened its borders to international air travel and we are looking forward to experiencing Ghana within the guidelines of new parameters. Please note this trip will be a new way of traveling and staying healthy. You will be provided with face coverings as they are mandatory to wear in public spaces. 

Travelers arriving in Ghana by air must present a negative COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test conducted by an accredited laboratory in the country of origin not more than 72 hours prior to departure.

Upon arrival, each traveler must undergo a COVID-19 test conducted at the airport. This test carries a $150 fee to be paid by the traveler, and results will generally be available within 30 minutes. Travelers who test negative for COVID-19 will be allowed to enter Ghana with no quarantine requirement. Those who test positive for COVID-19 will complete arrival procedures with the help of airport health officials before transfer to Ga East Municipal Hospital for clinical assessment and management.

Travelers exiting Ghana will undergo temperature screening prior to departure and will be required to comply with the COVID-19 testing requirements of their destination.
Ghana’s normal visa requirements are in effect.  

Upon payment of your deposit, there will be an option to purchase travel insurance through WeTravel. You do not have to use this particular company but travel insurance with a minimum coverage of $200,000 is mandatory.

Important: Remember to arrive in Accra (ACC) by 5PM on Dec 26, 2020 and depart anytime on Jan 2, 2021 for Ghana only. Currently Togo and Benin are not open to US Passport holders but that may change.  

Please note: There are non-stop flights from the US to Ghana including Delta Airlines. If you are connecting through another country, be sure to check with your airline to ensure the country will allow you as a US passport holder to transfer.

-Detailed itinerary

The trip was absolutely AMAZING! Jelani Women far exceeding my expectations. Everything from the itinerary to the food to the group of ladies on the trip was extraordinary. I would encourage everyone to take the journey home with Jelani Women Travel; you will not regret it.

Man!! I had such a great time on this trip. Due to COVID, we had to make some modifications to the trip, but everything turned out great. The beginning of the trip was packed with activities, so when we got the chance to just relax by the pool in the sun for a couple of days, we took advantage. I'd definitely recommend planning a trip with Jelani Women or having them curate a personal trip for you. Well worth it.

My children and I had a great time! We enjoyed the sights, eating all the good Senegalese food, meeting amazing people and making new connections!

Ghana was AMAZING!!!!! The people, the food, the shopping, the music, and the vibes were everything! Afrochella brought tons of people from the diaspora to Ghana to celebrate. Ashley curated an epic return to the motherland for us first-timers. We did a drum lesson, experienced a naming ceremony, learned to cook a traditional Ghanian meal and went to the Cape Coast. I'm so glad I decided to go on this trip. I will never forget it.

Senegal & The Gambia was my third Jelani Women Travel trip, and it did not disappoint. Senegalese food is delicious. I didn't taste anything that I didn't like everything was good. I'm glad I got a chance to meet and interact with the local Senegalese and Gambian people. The people are very friendly. I felt at home. Seeing the Door of No return on Goree Island, going to the top of the Renaissance Monument, walking with the lions, and seeing the Pink Lake in person were all some of my top adventures on the trip. We also had an awesome knowledgeable tour guide who helped to make sure we wanted and worried for nothing while in Senegal and The Gambia. The trip was a great time, the women I met on the trip were amazing. I was proud to be around such beautiful, intelligence, and successful black women
