Ghana is a country with many different cultures and traditions. It is the land of the once dominant Ashanti Kingdom! It is also the land of the GA who were the original settlers in Accra. The KROBO who migrated from Nigeria as well as The MUSI from the north who are also located in Burkina Faso and many in between. The coast of Ghana and Cote D’Ivoire was once referred to as the “Gold Coast.” Once word got out about the gold in Africa, many European nations traveled to Africa in search of fortune. As history tells us, they started as traders of goods, then they became traders of humans in what would be the largest forced migration of humans in history!!

There were at least 32 forts/castles in Ghana’s coast. The first castle built in Ghana was Elmina in the year 1412. It was built by the Portuguese who initially used the castle as a trading post for gold and other natural resources. 

His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, President of Ghana declared 2019 the year of return in commemoration of the landing of the first Africans on English speaking North American soil, Port Comfort, Virginia.

There were record numbers of Africans from the Diaspora who traveled to Ghana and other African countries in 2019. We believe the narrative that Africa is not welcoming to Africans in the Diaspora was dispelled. The cat is out of the bag…. It’s time to reclaim your heritage!!

This tour will focus on the Panafest event which brings hundreds of Africans from the Diaspora to take part in this healing, commemorative event. The tour will also include sites in Accra, Kumasi and Cape Coast. A group of first time land owners from the Diaspora will accompany this tour with the goal of visiting their land. Everyone is welcome!!!
