Journey Highlights

This fantastic new cultural odyssey takes us to the most remote regions of Ghana, Togo and Benin to discover lost tribal worlds guided by ancient spirits. Along the coast, in the heart of voodoo country, we visit voodoo practitioners, watch trance-dances and learn about the great influence voodoo spirits still have on people. Heading inland through savannah, we enter the Ashanti kingdom in Kumasi. The journey ends with an exploration of the former Slave Coast, with its haunting European forts and slave trade legacy. This is a fascinating journey to a surprising and undiscovered part of Africa which will leave you truly amazed.
