Our tailor-made package tours are designed for you to take a hassle-free vacation, because we allow you to put your feet up and relax while we take care of all the little details before and during the tour, saving you lots of time and money.

Multi – Country Tours

Why visit only Ghana when you can visit two or more countries in West Africa? At Sunset African Tours we take advantage of the proximity of Togo and Benin to Ghana, to offer multiple destination tours. Lome, Togo’s capital is three (3) hours drive from Accra; and Cotonou, capital of Benin, is another two and half (2 1/2) hours drive from Lome. So we combine tours to Ghana with Togo and Benin for those who want to experience more than Ghana. Thus on that one flight to any of the three capitals, you can enjoy the amazing sites, culture, history, and people of not only Ghana but also of Togo and Benin.

            Ghana, Togo & Benin | Ancient Kingdoms of West Africa | 13 nights/14 days

            This journey brings you close to some indigenous tribes in rural settlements that have stuck to their traditional ways of doing things. We start from Accra, Ghana’s capital inhabited by the Ga tribe, through to the Central Region and visit a Posuban Military Shrine where the Asafo companies (Fanti Traditional soldiers) prepare spiritually for war. We then travel north through the forest belt to Kumasi, capital of the once very powerful Ashanti Empire, continue to Techiman, where history says the Akans first settled after the fall of the Ghana Empire. In the wooded grasslands of northern Ghana we will travel through Tamale, Bolgatanga and Sirigu; a town with unique colourful and abstract paintings on their mud houses

            Cross over into the northern part of Togo to Bassar, originally known for iron making, and to Sokode to witness men dance on hot flaming charcoal. Cross a second border ie the Togo-Benin into Benin, and into the lands of the Taberma and Somba people, who built their fortress-like homes very close to each other in the 18th century to protect themselves. You will also come across the very isolated Taneka tribe on a cliff top with round and cone-like roof homes. Travel south to the royal palaces of Abomey, capital of the former powerful Dahomey Empire. As you continue the journey southwards, you will begin to notice a strong presence of the Voodoo religion until you arrive in Ouidah, Benin’s capital of the Voodoo religion. You will get a firsthand experience of a Voodoo ceremony and witness Zangbeto, a spiritual masks dance. Experience an intriguing hotel night in Ganvie, a village of 18,000 people in the middle of Lake Nokoue.

            Again cross the Benin-Togo border over to the south of Togo and to the fetish market where you will find the most bizarre ingredients for magic potions. Our adventure finally ends back in Accra.
