Year of Return
December 26, 2019 - January 3, 2020
Why Ghana? Well, if you haven’t heard, 2019 marks the 400th anniversary since the first slave ship left the coast of Ghana for the Transatlantic Slave Trade. President Nana Akufo-Addo is calling 2019 the Year of Return and is inviting us home to see with our own two eyes what Ghana has to offer.
See what Ghana has in store for you.
Experience Ghanaian Culture
We know you’re like us and will want to get hands-on experience exploring Ghana’s rich culture. You’ll get a chance to learn about and try your hand at making Ghana’s unique kente cloth and traditional tie dye textiles.
And you know we couldn’t head to West Africa and not experience making Ghanaian jollof. If you’re not team #GhanaianJollof before the trip, you’ll definitely be after.
Lastly, after enjoying some fire jollof, you’ll burn off those calories practicing your Shaku Shaku in an afrobeat dance class.
Turn Up At Afrochella
You will get your ENTIRE life at Afrochella vibing to live performances, tasting delicious food from around the continent, connecting with other festival goers and most importantly...celebrating your blackness!
Rest & Relax
Hotels can make or break a trip. We know from experience. It’s where you come back at the end of a long day to unwind and recap on all the adventures the day held.
With that said, we’ve arranged for us to stay at Accra’s Fiesta Residences. A hotel and residence with modern design and touches of luxury. We’ll have access to Fiesta Residences’ outdoor pool, gym, restaurants, and on-site spa.
You’ll be visiting some of Ghana’s most recognized sites and gaining a deeper understanding of the country’s rich history. You’ll get to visit the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum to learn more about the prominent leader who some scholars call the "genesis" of the actual History Of Ghana. From there, we’ll head to Independence Square where you’ll be able to see some of the incredible monuments that were erected to commemorate Ghana’s struggle for independence. Lastly, we’ll visit the Dubois Center which was the home, library and final resting place of American-born crusader for social justice, William Edward Burghardt DuBois.
