Explore Ghana and its rich history, including its part in the Trans-Atlantic slave trade, on this fun and educational 8-day trip exploring some of the most amazing parts of the country. Visit the UNESCO-Heritage-listed slave castles of Cape Coast and Elmina, take a tour of the capital city, visit a few fascinating forts and enjoy the stunning beach views, all while learning more about our human past and the profound effects of colonization and slavery across the world.

The tour begins from the nation’s capital of Ghana, where we have an in-depth tour of Accra. Then we leave the big city behind and explore all the way along the coastal region where you can tour the infamous castles known for temporarily housing slaves, before returning to Accra for the final day.
