Together we’ll explore bustling markets, cook authentic food with locals, visit a local village and school, and receive our African name at a traditional naming ceremony. We’ll also dive into the emotional history of the West African slave trade, take African dance and drum lessons, trek to hidden waterfalls, enjoy a peaceful boat ride the river, and escape to beautiful beaches together. So let’s dip away to Ghana and see Accra like never before!
