Have you always longed to visit the Motherland? Well, don’t miss this opportunity to do just that!

We welcome you to experience the excitement of one of Africa’s most vibrant countries – Ghana, West Africa. Every two years, “Panafest” – Ghana’s Pan-African Theatre Festival – brings together a diverse assembly of people ranging from political leaders, eminent personalities and intellectuals, to entrepreneurs, investors, philanthropists, and vacationers – to celebrate the history, culture, and unity of Ghanaian people. Central to the celebration are major international performing and visual artists from across Africa. Additionally, this tour will allow you to explore Ghana’s rich history, culture and traditions through lectures by experts and excursions to such major points of interest as Kakum Canopy Walkway; Aburi Botanical Gardens; Kwame Nkrumah Memorial; W.E.B. Dubois Center for Pan African Studies; Nzulezo Stilt Village, universities, galleries, museums, cultural centers and open-air markets. You will observe the crafting of wood carving, drum making, kente cloth weaving, and adinkra wax printing. Most of all, you will never forget your visits to the forts, castles, and dungeons that enslaved our ancestors in Elmina and Cape Coast.
