Overview of Ghana:

On the 6th March 1957, Ghana became the first sub-Saharan African country to gain independence, and with that ushering a wave of independence across the continent. From botanical gardens and wildlife, to  entrepreneurship hubs of locally artisans, to natural resources and pan-African histories, each of Ghana's 16 regions provides a unique experience.

Starting at Accra, the undisputed gateway to Ghana, provides a warm embrace to kick off your adventures - a voyage of discovery of history and various cultures, languages and food. Yet a must-do escape from the Capital city, to a number of the other regions provides further opportunities for unique and diverse, culturally immersive experiences.

Overview of the Travel Adventure:

1. Explore the highlights of Accra, including James Town, Kwame Nkrumah National Park, Makola market and the Arts Centre.
2. Escape the busy streets with a retreat to Aburi or Legon Botanical Gardens. 
3. Venture off the beaten track to Boti Falls and Koforidua Bead Market.
4. Take a historical journey through Cape Coast, Elmina Castle and Kakum National Park.
5. Visit the land of Kings and Queens, the Ashanti Region, exploring its capital Kumasi, and the kente weaving village of Bonwire.
6. Fly to visit Northern Ghana, the land of shea butter in Tamale and home of the famous basket-weaving community in Bolgatanga.
7. Sail on one of the largest man-made lakes in the world, Lake Volta.
8. Attend the world-famous Afrochella Festival (December only).
9. Attend selected events hosted by the famous AkwaabaUK (December only).

What is the Talking Drums Travel Adventure?

It is a travel tour of like-minded individuals, coming together to explore Africa and beyond! Talking Drums curates trips for small groups, and as much as possible, procures goods and services from local businesses, to contribute to the local economy. 

We aim to immerse ourselves in each experience, and empower you to undertake your own travel adventures responsibly, whilst having a positive impact across Africa and beyond. Solo travellers are warmly welcome.

With a Talking Drums Travel Adventure, you will be travelling with a purpose. With a focus on having a positive impact, we align our services to the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, where possible, we source our goods and services from local businesses, and also donate a proceed of profits to initiatives that benefit the local communities to where we travel.

We also donate a portion of the proceeds of our travel adventures to a local community initiative in the country we visit.

Who else will be joining the Travel Adventure?

We offer the Travel Adventures to a maximum of ten travellers per travel group trip, to enable a deeply immersive experience.

By the end of the trip, we hope you leave as a community and group of friends.

How did you develop the itinerary?

We believe in travelling with a purpose, in cultural immersions, getting off the beaten track and positive impacts.

Therefore each itinerary has been carefully curated based on over 10 years experience solo travelling across the continent, and multiple trips to the Travel Adventure destinations. We have sourced the best accommodation and experiences, enabling them to be the most diversified and competitively priced, and providing an affordable yet luxurious experience.

Do I have to pay the cost all at once?

You have the option to pay the total cost at the time of booking or the deposit of £300.

If you choose the deposit option, you can make additional payments on an ongoing basis.
