14 Days of trekking through paradise, staying each night in lovely beach front Eco-lodges
This unique tour offered by no-one else is a great way to get to see so much of what makes Ghana amazing. On this tour you will walk or hike through a rural coastal area of Ghana staying each night in lovely beach side eco-lodges. During the day there will be time to acquaint yourself with your surroundings in each area, whether it be exploring castles, taking a canoe crocodile safari, learning to surf, learning to cook, drumming, and exploring rubber plantations and rain forest reserves. You will also connect with friendly fishing villages where all the children will want you to be their new friend.
The Cape Three Points area of Ghana is in the far Western Region, where the beaches are endless and clean and the people welcoming and kind. This complex of capes forms the most southern area of Ghana along the Sea of Guinea and the Atlantic Ocean. This area is special because of the opportunity it provides visitors to get to know the area and do so by hiking between communities. There is a complex of heritage trails in the area that go back hundreds of years used by the Ahanta people in the area to travel between their communities. Today the trails still exist and wind their way through Coconut Groves, Rubber Plantations, thickets of Bamboo and butterflies. Until recently a trip like this was not really possible for the casual visitor though because of the lack of accommodations within walking distance of each other. Now there are a number of great Ecolodges that make this trip not only possible but truly unforgettable.
