Want to visit Africa

like to have a good time with new people

enjoy eating local foods

Have stamina

We’d absolutely love to have you! But, if your ideal vacation involves a lot of relaxation on the beach daily and sleeping in this experience is not for you. Although, we will be seeing and doing it all during our time in Ghana, so if you are looking for a slow paced trip this is likely not your jam.
