      What can you say about your dream trip.? A trip that you imagined would be full of culture, history, community, laughs, tears, and rejoices. That is exactly what you would say because that is exactly every base that was curatedly covered by KLA.. There are no words to describe how amazing the organization of this trip was because the words used above only scratch the surface. Are you ready for the trip of a lifetime? This trip is exactly that and beyond.

      Life- changing experience! I am beyond grateful to have made it on this trip. Not only was KLA thorough in ensuring that I had the best experience possible, the women (and gentleman) were the best travel partners ever. I will forever be a fan and am looking forward to exploring more of the continent with KLA (please expand!)

      My husband and I had the pleasure of traveling to Ghana in August 2022. It was an amazing experience! The hosts carefully curated an exciting agenda complete with good food, shopping, dancing, history lessons and so much more.

      This was hands down the best trip I’ve ever been on!! I’m usually the one in the crew having to plan everything so it was nice to just show up and have things in order. KLA curated the absolute best experience for us and it was clear from day one, that we would all bond as a family (and we did). The type of travelers you attract are open-minded, encouraging, funny, entertaining, and just overall “go with the flow” (a must in Ghana so if you’re a stickler for scheduling, this ain’t for you. We moved off vibes - much like my life haha). From the trip to Cape Coast to lounging around in the Volta region (one of my favorite days!), the detail and experience was top tier across the board. We felt safe, the restaurants were super cute, nightlife was a blast, and the hotel experience was top notch. I’ve been telling all of my friends to hop on the waitlist because I came back a better, transformed woman. Walking the sacred ground of my ancestors was an experience. I learned more about myself than I planned to and I feel connected to the continent in a way that I didn’t before. Thank you Mika, Davida, and the rest of the KLA crew. This is your purpose actively being fulfilled and it’s only going to get bigger and better from here! Thank you for sharing your beautiful country with us. I met so many amazing people, have so many memories and super cute gifts that make me smile every time I look at them. I can’t wait to come back!
