About this trip

12 DAYS IN GHANA!!! Just beyond the Return, the “Gateway” to West Africa awaits you! The tour begins in Accra where you can rest and get acclimated to being in the Motherland or take the option to visit the Afrochella Music Festival. We will visit the W.E.B. DuBois Center for Pan Africanism and Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum. Then bring in the New Year with an epic celebration! After we have rested, we will travel east for Elmina to see where the struggle of the African American began. Experience the dungeons that were designed to steal hope, but today we celebrate at the Door of Return. Head north, stop to hear the echoes of the ancestors at Assin Manso (the River of the Last Bath; for those captured by the slave trappers). We will continue North to Kumasi to visit the Ashanti Kingdom to purchase authentic kente cloth. Then, head to the Eastern Region's beautiful Aburi Botanical Garden to see and learn of the healing properties of the land. We will round the tour out with a farewell ceremony like no other back in Accra, visit the beaches and return to the USA with a new perspective on life! 

Note: Prices are quoted as double occupancy. Single upgrades are not available. This itinerary is subject to change. 

SANKOFA Tour of Ghana

The Sankofa Tour is more than just a trip or vacation, it is fun in the sun, mixed with history, culture and conversations that will provoke a fresh new light on the world, your community and yourself. Bishop Lance Davis, the Executive Minister of the Evangelical Covenant Church has traveled to Ghana, West Africa for over 20 years. Now, through Sankofa US, he has designed a tour that will bring a unique experience to travelers and enhance their perspective of themselves and of Ghana, West Africa!


Sankofa is the ancient Adinkra Symbol of a bird flying forward, yet looking back with a fruit in its mouth. We call this trip the Sankofa Tour because as we make forward progress in our lives, it is important that we look back to the place that connects us to the root of our being, all while bringing something to the table and leaving with something of value - good fruit.

I am LaNiece Thomas-Flagg, the travel coordinator for Sankofa US. Bishop Lance Davis has organized trips to Ghana, West Africa since 2002. I have been on board since 2010 planning trips for MTV host, Dometi Pongo; Chicago's Life Coach, Linal Harris, of Inspirational Perspective, and several others with the most recent being the illustrious Dr. Chip Johnson; well known throughout Chicago for his gifts in music and education. It is our joy to bring a unique, inspirational, educational, fun and exciting vacation to the diaspora!


I had a great time and enjoyed the food people and Ghana trip. I would love to go back again. We lost a day in Country due to weather which was a bummer. Thankfully we did not have to carry bags and we had the excellent service staff and Bishop made this trip extra special by taking care of our outing while in Country.

This was the most amazing trip that I have ever taken in my life! It was full of both history and so much fun. The people that I met are new friends that I will have for a lifetime. I am so grateful for this life-changing experience that Sankofa US provided from the beginning to the end of the trip. The staff was so helpful and nurturing, the adventures were great, and the opportunities to see multiple cities in Ghana were scheduled perfectly. This is a trip that you don't want to miss. It is very affordable and the two weeks we spent there did not feel like enough, because everything was so amazing!
