Why travel with “Okwan da ho” to Ghana?

Because Henk & Joa lived and worked in Ghana in the 90s, they are familiar with many things that play a role in Ghana. Due to their involvement in an educational project, the farewell was not final in 1999, but they were regularly back in Ghana. If there was interest, they traveled with a group of people around Ghana to show them the beautiful places of Ghana and to experience encounters with people. Another facet is the cultural richness that Ghana offers and that comes up in many situations, such as the naming, the Adinkra symbols, the chieftancy, etc. If you are in Ghana you cannot ignore this culture and let yourself be enrich.Ghana has a lot to offer in many ways. Okwan da ho would like to give that depth to your journey by really meeting the people and the culture.
Theme trips


Everyone is different, so it is important to tailor the personal wishes for a trip through Ghana. But also as a group you have specific wishes what you want to do with each other. It is important that there is good communication with the person or with the group. That inventory is an important first step. This will be followed by a design for a travel program, tailored to the wishes of the applicant(s). If there is an agreement there will be a final proposal and the necessary reservations will be made.
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

In order to meet its statutory obligation to provide a guarantee, Okwandaho uses STO Garant, a guarantee scheme recognised by the Netherlands Authority for Consumers and Markets (ACM). You can check that this is the case by visiting STO Garant’s website and verifying that the organisation is listed as a participant ( You can find all information relating to STO Garant at

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 (

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.
