This Is The Only Tour You’ll Need On Your Next Trip To The Motherland

For those of us in the African diaspora, a trip to Mama Africa is very often a spiritual journeya homecoming of sorts. Planning a trip of that emotional magnitude can be daunting, but it’s not impossible…especially with the right help.

That’s where Landtours, Ltd. comes in.

Landtours is a premier full-service travel company based in Accra, Ghana. The company operates throughout West Africa and is committed to providing quality cultural experiences for visitors. So if you find yourself getting “stuck” as you try to plan a real immersive experience in the motherland, Landtours will allow you to break away from the crowded tourist scene and have authentic interactions with the people and traditions that make Africa “home.”

In Ghana, the importance of tourism to national development was established at an early stage of the young country’s history. Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president, advocated strongly for free movement and engagement between African countries. Dr. Nkrumah once said that “It is clear that we must find an African solution to our problems, and that this can only be found in African unity.”

Just like the founding fathers and mothers of African Unity imagined, the future of tourism in Africa lies in the ability of the continent to band together and drive real progress. We should be inspired by the Pan African vision of tourism for Africans by Africans. It’s tourism with a purpose, and that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

And you’re not limited to exploring Ghana. Landtours offers tours within seven areas in West Africa. Those areas include: Ghana, Togo, Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Senegal, Gambia, and Sao Tome. The company hosts day and weekend tours as well as more in-depth tours that last up to 21 days or more. With the ability to mix-and-match different country experiences, Landtours offers fully customizable tours that can be tailored precisely to your interest.

You can experience a Ghanaian Village for a day. With this experience, you will venture to a beautiful village located on the lower course of the splendid Volta River in the Volta Region. There you will be given a traditional African name and welcomed with joyous singing, dancing and celebration as a member of the village. You will work alongside the natives to help with one of the revenue sharing activities special to that village.

If you are looking for a full immersion of the culture, then you may want to try out one of the longer experiences. With the Ghana, Togo and Benin Tour, you will be welcomed and treated like a local. Within the 12 days you will: take a city tour of Accra, visit the Cape Coast, Elmina Castles, and slave dungeons. On this tour, you will also explore the historic royal Ashanti Kingdom and be given the chance to meet with a traditional chief.

Whether it’s your first time or your 15th, there’s always something new and interesting to discover in West Africa. With these tours, you’re guaranteed to have an experience you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life.
