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.
