African Ancestry Family Reunions®
Create An Unforgettable Reconnection
African Ancestry Family Reunions in Ghana are specially curated all-inclusive birthright journeys. Now that your genetic ancestry has been found in Ghana, join us for an authentic, culturally immersive experience back home.
As you consider traveling with African Ancestry, here are a few things to prepare you for your journey to Ghana. Ghana is Africa’s first country to gain independence from colonial rule on March 6, 1957, and it’s first President, Kwame Nkrumah, is known as the father of Pan Africanism. Our Ghanaian African Ancestry family members belong to the Akan, Ewe, Ashanti, Ga, and Fante ethnic groups. Ghana is also known as the Gold Coast, the Black Star State, and the Gateway to Africa. And in 2009, Ghana granted citizenship to 126 people of the African Diaspora.
We have worked in partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, local communities, businesses and cultural organizations, to create an unforgettable reconnection to your family’s roots. This journey goes far and beyond your average tourist trip! We will learn our histories and give back to our brothers and sisters in Ghana with lots of love, laughter and respect.
"As an adoptee, it was important that I find my identity.
Discovering that I am of the Mafa people of the Extreme North of Cameroon; then visiting and placing my feet on the soil of my ancestor grandmother’s homeland, fills me with pride and makes me feel more connected to myself."
Wendi Cherry, Masa, Mafa and Kotoko people of Cameroon
"My experience traveling to the land of my Ancestors has been a life-changing experience but knowing that my paternal ancestors came from among the Temne people of Sierra Leone gave me a location and a people that I can return to, that alone gave me a personal experience that made me feel like I never left."
Foday Conteh Kunda, Temne people of Sierra Leone
"For me visiting Africa was purposeful reclamation;
there I was welcomed to reclaim an extremely important part of who I am–Balanta, those who resist!"
Eddie Meeks, Balanta people of Guinea-Bissau
