Sankofa Travel: Ghana Tours

 Embrace your heritage with the trip of a lifetime

About: In Ghana, Adinkra symbols--originally created by the Akan people--are used to express complex ideas, concepts, and morals. So it is with “Sankofa,” usually illustrated as a bird turning back towards its own tail. This popular symbol, it’s meaning usually summarized as “go back and get it,” reminds us of the importance of revisiting and learning from our pasts. With this trip, you will be given the opportunity to bridge the past and your present, and reconnect with your history, by embracing Ghana’s culture, lifestyle, cuisine, and landscape.

Why this Trip? Ghana has been proclaimed as the next popular tourist destination. With its star power (notables such as Bozema St. John and Boris Kodjoe claim Ghanaian ancestry), hospitality, and beautiful beaches, a trip to Ghana is just as fulfilling as any Caribbean vacation. Part of our “Rise Above” community program, the goal of this trip is to not only offer you rest, relaxation, and exposure to the motherland, it is to enlighten your mind, body, and soul about Ghana’s rich culture, and to offer you the opportunity to connect to your history.
