GHANA REPATRIATION & INVESTMENT TOUR :May 25-June 6, 2017
Everyone enjoys a full course meal, well how about a full course traveling opportunity on the Journey of a Lifetime to Ghana.
Africa for the Africans, a black-owned Atlanta based international business enterprise, specializing in tours to Africa and investment services helps individuals do just that. A new 12- day tour covering four regions in Ghana will take place, May 25-June 6, 2017.
“This Journey to the motherland is inspired by the works of Marcus Garvey to reconnect our people to the land and our ancestors,” Bomani Tyehimba, Director of Africa for the Africans Tours said, “We must pick up the flag and continue the works that was laid out by great visionaries like Marcus Garvey, he added.”
Africa for the Africans Tours & Investments revitalizes Africans throughout the Diaspora with a renewed cultural, economic and historical connection to the motherland —the African continent — and a mission to foster lasting relationships with our African family: a vision inspired by the Honorable Marcus Garvey, who coined the phrase “Africa for the Africans” to encourage a black nation to reconnect and invest in Africa for future generations.
Africa for the Africans’ vision has guided hundreds of people yearning to be exposed to opportunities in Africa. So, why tour with Africa for the Africans Tours and Investment Group?
“We have over 10 years of experience touring in Africa and everything is completely laid out,” Bomani said. “People are getting a personal experience of a tour that is built for their special reconnection to the land of our ancestors. We have adjusted the tour so many times and ways that it allows us to offer you the best itinerary, a top notch staff, great security, and a very special experience- “the journey of a lifetime,” he added.
The tour satisfies your adventurous spirit while letting you experience a vibrant Africa with a mix of roots, culture, paradise, night life, shopping, networking, business, and investment opportunities. This journey is breath taking as you connect with historical sites like Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park, Bojo Beach, Fiema Monkey Sanctuary, Fuller Waterfalls, the Elmina Holocaust Dungeons and so much more.
Tour patrons are exposed to the many investments, land/home ownership opportunities that exist in Ghana, as well as opportunities to experience “the gift of giving” by delivering valuable school supplies, toys and clothing to children’s orphanages and schools during the tour.
Since 2006, Africa for the Africans Tours & Investments has been dedicated to empowering Africa as a home base for people of African ancestry around the world.
