Tour to Ghana, Togo, Benin: Festivals and Traditions (2019)

From £3030 for 12 days
Trip Overview

Our fantastic cultural odyssey takes us to the most remote regions of Ghana, Togo and Benin to discover lost tribal worlds guided by ancient spirits. Along the coast, in the heart of voodoo country, we visit practitioners, watch trance-dances and learn about the great influence voodoo spirits still have on people. Heading inland through northern savannah, we discover the Taneka tribe on a rocky mountain, then the Tamberma with their fairy-tale clay castles before finally encountering the Ashanti kingdom of Kumasi. We end our tour exploring the former Slave Coast with its haunting European forts. Indeed, this is one of the most complete and spectacular tours in West Africa. This offers a great experience combined with the choice of good accommodation, perfect for travelers who want to get acquainted with this incredible region.
