Thursday, December 26th
We have arrived...and it’s HOT lol! After the long plane ride to the motherland, we’ll have our personal drivers pick you up from the airport and take you to our hotel. Once you’ve chilled a bit (aka passed out lol) join us at our welcome dinner where you can meet the other guests and commune over a delicious meal!
Arrive in Ghana
Friday, December 27th
Today we’ll be visiting some of Ghana’s most recognized sites and gaining a deeper understanding of the country’s rich history. We’ll start at 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 we’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.

Make sure you wear comfy shoes because we’ll be hittin’ the bustling streets of Accra to do some shopping. Once you’ve picked up a couple of dope finds and an outfit or two...we’re off to Afrochella! You will get your ENTIRE life here vibing to live performances, tasting delicious food from around the continent, connecting with other festival goers and most importantly...celebrating your blackness!
Rest up, kings & queens.We know Afrochella probably wore you out (in the best possible way lol) so today we’re layin’ low. Once you’re ready to get up and moving, we’ll hit up a Ghana tie dye & Kente making experience where you’ll learn about its origin and how it’s made. Poppin’, right?

We’ll be leaving the city of Accra to head to the Cape Coast...and we’re not gonna lie...today will be filled with lots of emotion. You’ll have the opportunity to visit the castle where many Africans were held before being forced onto boats leaving for slavery in the Americas and Caribbean. For many of us, it will be a surreal, yet necessary, moment stepping foot in places our ancestors once dwelled. Following our trip to the castle, we will stop by the Kakum Walkway. This will give you a chance to decompress from the day’s activities...and snap that dope shot for the Gram *emoji eyes*

Y’all know we couldn’t come to Ghana without tasting one of West Africa’s staple dishes, right? Today we’ll head to one of the best Accra markets to pick up fresh ingredients for our Jollof Making Class! After, we’ll burn off some of those calories practicing your Shaku Shaku in an afrobeat dance class. We’ll end the night with fireworks to celebrate the new year!
