Ghana Heritage Tours
Ghana is a country that is abundantly endowed with a wealth of culture, tradition and history. Her people tell her tales with warmth and friendliness. Ghana has deep roots in history as its origins can be traced back about two thousand years, the times of the ancient Ghanaian empire. This empire was prominent for being successful in businesses and trades. It formed peaceful trade relationships with other African countries, with ivory, salt, gold and kola nuts as some of its most priced resources. As a matter of fact, Ghana was formerly known as Gold coast before it was later renamed to be Ghana, which it bears till date.
Ghana has a lot of rich history to tell to foreigners and her children because it partook of the great historical movements of those days, such as slave trade and colonialism. These movements may not all have had sweet beginnings and fairytale endings, but they have formed a great part of the country’s history.
Today, Ghana now boasts of many profitable trade markets, sites and landmarks that serve as evidence of history, long lasting cultures and traditions that are punctuated with unique songs, events, attires and dances and beautiful relaxation centers.
