Experience PANAFEST with Gateway

As a follow up to the "2022 Royal Experience Tour," His Royal Majesty, Daasebre Kwebu Ewusi VII, ruler of the Central Region in Ghana will escort our group to PANAFEST, which is held in his region. His Royal Majesty will also lead our delegation to the Akwasidae traditional festival held at the neighboring Kumasi Kingdom Palace. During this tour, you will experience the largest open air market in Ghana, beaches, traditional villages, the Slave River, sacred shrines, the former slave castle at Cape Coast, a rain forest canopy walking tour, and the ProFarm's Citrus Bluffs project site.

The Pan African Historical Festival (PANAFEST) is the most celebrated Pan African Festival in the world. Inspired back in 1992, by the late great Pan Africanist Efua Sutherland, PANAFEST has become a landmark festival in Ghana which gives Africans on the Continent and in the Diaspora a platform to address the most traumatic interruption that ever occurred in the natural evolution of African societies which among other traumas profoundly eroded the self-confidence and freedom for self-determination of a whole people.

The Akwasidae Festival is celebrated by the Ashanti people and chiefs in Ashanti, as well as the Ashanti diaspora. The festival is celebrated on a Sunday, once every six weeks.

*Cancellation Policy

- Initial deposit amount, non refundable, which covers VISA and room reservations.

- Up to 60 days before tour starts: 100% of installment payments (not including initial deposit) are refunded.

- At 30 days before tour starts: 50% of tour installment payments will be refunded (because the mode of transportation(coach, coaster, or van) and costs would've been finalized and committed to. If we refund this amount to a canceling party, the difference in vehicle rental cost will then need to be made up by everyone else, and that is not fair to the group.)

- At 15 days before tour starts: 100% of tour payments would've been made and CANT be refunded. This is why travel insurance is essential.
