Ghana is not the country for mass tourism,
but it has a lot to offer for the curious tourist who wants to discover more of the world.
Ghana’s historical ties with the Netherlands go back a long way, although that is not always something to be proud of.
A visit to the slave fortresses in Cape Coast and Elmina provides strong impressions and gives a realistic picture of the situation of the slaves at the time.
When traveling through Ghana, this is one of the building blocks that should definitely be visited.
Below are more building blocks for a trip through Ghana.
It is up to the traveler to determine the choice of destinations and the mode of transport through Ghana.
Remember that there is a lot possible to suit everyone’s wishes and budget.

Why travel with “Okwan da ho” to Ghana?
Joa is an expert in organizing trips and likes to arrange the program for individuals and groups. It is also possible that a trip will be drawn up on the basis of a special theme. You can think of a culture trip, a nature trip, an art trip or a cocoa trip. This can be put together in consultation with Joa.
A guarantee in place: STO Garant
Whether STO Garant's guarantee applies to a particular (travel) offer made by Okwandaho is specified for that offer. The Guarantee Scheme specifies what the guarantee covers and which conditions apply. You can find the Guarantee Scheme on STO Garant's website (www.sto-garant.nl/en/downloads).
How it works
If STO Garant's guarantee applies to your booking, you do not pay the booking amount to Okwandaho but instead into the escrow account belonging to Stichting Derdengelden Certo Escrow, a payment services provider registered with De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) and the Dutch Authority for the Financial Markets (AFM). This trust account holds your payment in reserve until the trip booked has come to an end. The booking amount is then released to [company name] on the day after your trip ends. If Okwandaho should become financially insolvent before the end of your trip, STO Garant will implement the guarantee. The Guarantee Scheme details how you can make a claim under the guarantee in such cases.
