About this trip

 Cheryce and Dori are inviting you to join them for a New Year tour of Ghana. Just beyond the Return, the “Gateway” to West Africa awaits you! The tour begins in Accra where you will visit the W.E.B. DuBois Center for Pan Africanism and Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum. 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). Visit Akosombo, just at the border of the Volta Region. 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 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.
