Secure your spot with a $100 deposit. We prefer payments in Zelle or PayPal. To keep on track and make the cost of the trip more manageable, monthly payments will be set for March 15, April 15, May 15, June 15, and a final payment on July 15.
We have opted not to include airfare in the cost of the trip due to the less than competitive offers we received. The prices were higher due to administrative fees charged for group planning. Instead, we will work with travelers to find group discounts. We also understand that some travelers may have frequent flyer miles or credits from previous flights that may have been canceled during the worldwide lockdowns. In addition, for travelers who want to stay longer, having the flexibility to book separately or adjust flights is ideal.
We have not included meals for a number of reasons. In my experience, its better to choose your own food. There will be travelers who want to be adventurous and try Ghanaian food. Then there will be travelers who want to stick with the familiar. To prevent disappointment and wasting money, we will choose restaurants with a variety of options such as vegan, vegetarian, continental, and local Ghanaian dishes. Food is affordable. Dinner and drinks should cost no more than $12 USD. For those who want to eat local, the cost is even less at $5 USD for a filling meal and bottled water.
Weekly Communication & Trip Preparation
Each week you will receive an email with important information and education regarding the trip. We will walk you through every stage of the process, from securing your Visas to obtaining Covid tests for flights. All of your questions will be answered and by the time we take flight you will be prepared for a full and life-changing experience.
Please register right away. We will begin weekly communication regarding the trip on March 15.
HOMOWO is just one of the many cultural experiences we will have. The Homowo Festival is a month long celebration of the harvest mainly celebrated by the Ga people in the Greater Accra area of Ghana. The festival is not necessarily held at one specific time but is usually held near August. Homowo is translated to mean “hooting at hunger” or sometimes “shame to hunger.” As the story goes, when the Ga people first came to the area, there was a severe famine for a number of years. Eventually, the Ga people fasted and prayed, then began farming and had an excellent crop.
CHALE WOTE is a street art festival held every August in Accra. Chale Wote attracts some of the world’s best Black artists to Ghana for a celebration of art appreciation in the form of an open-air street gallery. Enjoy everything from live paintings to spoken word to murals and music, no art form is left unexplored. The week-long festival is held in historic Jamestown.
