Overview
An educative and enjoyable African Heritage experience showcasing your rich and colorful cultural identity that still lives on and plays a vital role in everyday life for your people. A traditional naming ceremony will be arranged in your honor where you finally receive your true African name that you would have received from your ancestors. The name given to you is correct as it is connected to the day of the week you were born on so you can be confident in its authenticity. Retracing the steps your forefathers were forced to make, gaining in-depth knowledge of what happened and seeing first-hand the edifices and now silent monuments that remain to this day is an important part of your journey. Visiting ancient traditional communities to learn the foundations of your culture, on the flipside also experiencing modern day Africa and seeing how this culture brings so much to the younger generation and the growth of the nation. Ashanti African Tours are locally owned and Ghana based.

Wanting to book a trip with Ashanti? Do not hesitate, do it now! We recently returned from a 57 day private tour with Ashanti. Most of the trip was with a driver and bird/mammal watching guide and about 2 weeks with a driver-guide only. We cannot recommend the company and it’s guides and drivers highly enough. They made sure the trip went smoothly and comfortably and that we found most of the species we had dreamed of. The bird guides are the best I have ever experienced. We had 3 different guides during our trip which was just perfect. All of them were excellent. For Mammal spotting in the forest no one has better eyes than Andrew, Ashanti’s Mammal specialist. Kojo drove for us for the majority of the trip. For two weeks he acted as driver-guide too. He is a one in a million person and I highly recommend him for any trip, especially if you don’t need a birding guide for the whole time. Kojo knows all the birding sites and was very helpful in finding the most special and sought after species in the north. He made our trip the fantastic success that it was. It’s not an easy task to “entertain” clients for that length of time. We loved the security of Ashanti having a back up for all eventualities (even though we didn’t need it). This would not be the case with with some smaller companies.

Ashanti Africa is well run and employs outstanding widlife guides. We had a couple of disasters on our short trip, so it says something for Ashanti that they still get 5 stars. Our car broke down, but they sorted it. Our hotel was not ready for guests, but they did their bit to sort things out.

We were only in Ghana for a short time but mum and I wanted to see cape coast & Kakum National park. African Ashanti Tours was highly recommended in my Brandt Guide book so I contacted the website and quickly received a quote for a private day tour. Our tour guide Oscar arrived at our accommodation bang on time and also contacted us the day before to ensure the location was correct. We did everything on the itinerary (and more!). As this was a private tour we were even able to fit in a pit stop at my mums old secondary school for a photo. Oscar kindly took some wonderful photos of us in the canopy at Kakum on my phone. We also stopped at a stingless bee sanctuary and tasted some honey. This was a day trip of a lifetime.
