This adventure will help you discover the greatness in you where your adrenalin is put to test. The Kwahu plateau for instance is one of Ghana’s highest peaks and its geographically unique location with amazing features of Ghana where you will have an amazing view over the Afram Plains.

2. Paragliding: Paragliding is a very growing sport and adventure in Ghana. It is very big during Easter where seasoned pilots from all over the world are invited to Ghana to fly hundreds of people giving them memorable experiences during the famous Kwahu Easter Festival. In the past, there has been another paragliding festival in Ghana during December at the Togo Ranges. Currently, Peaks and Valleys Outdoor provides paragliding adventure on the Kwaku Ranges every weekend making it possible for this adventure to be available throughout the year. In most cases, bookings have to be made in advance confirming if the weather condition is perfect to enable departure.

3. Caves Hiking: Another adventure available in Ghana is caves hikes. With these adventures, you hike some terrains and explore ancient caves with a fascinating history. A very popular caves hike location in Ghana is the Likpe Tome caves on the Togo Ranges which has six hidden caves as well the Kwahu rock city and caves.


4. Mountains and Waterfalls Hike.: There is quite a number of waterfalls in Ghana. Though some may not be that popular probably due to their obscure locations they still contribute on their part to the beauty of Ghana which attracts locals as well foreigners traveling from all around the world just to view these marvelous nature's wonders. If you are looking for a very beautiful hike or trek adventure, you can consider a hike from Mountain Afadjato, Ghana’s highest mountain to Wli Waterfalls, West Africa’s highest waterfalls that flows in 2 cascades. You can also hike Ghana’s highest mountain and the twin mountain together with the Tagbo Waterfall or consider hiking West Africa’s highest waterfalls, both the upper falls and lower falls. In these areas, you have options to choose from.

5. Quad Biking: In Ghana, quad bikes are available in Ghana in the Eastern Region. You can have a quad biking experience around the Aburi mountains, through local villages, pineapple farms, pawpaw farms, and even to local waterfalls. This experience is memories worth repeating.

Client testimonials we have helped exploring & planning their trip to Ghana


REBOUND staff & Teenagers, Group of 10 Travelers from MINNEAPOLIS, USA, Corporate retreat, July 2023




Review 1: Christy Botts, Minneapolis, USA, August 2023


Our non-profit organisation took a group of young people to Ghana in July 2023. The experience was an amazing one that was spiritually moving as well as fun! We had an excellent tour guide who brought the country to life for us. Our youth were able to connect to one another and to the country in ways we could only have dreamed possible.


The Cooking Class was my favourite activity- being invited to our guide’s relative's home to cook "with the aunties" and hang out, listen to music, dance, laugh, get to know people, and eat was SO FUN. We felt like family!

It was a good occasion to bond with other group members and Ghanaian Culture.





Review 2: Danielle Draughn, Minneapolis, USA, August 2023

"I am an educator so I really enjoyed visiting with the children at the school. However, words can't even begin to explain the experience and tell all the wonderful things we were exposed to.


Best tour guide ever. The cameraman and driver were also good. Kwame was the absolute best tour guide who turned i to a friend I have ever experienced. He is very knowledgeable, caring and professional. He made sure we all had whatever we needed and made sure we were comfortable.


He was highly motivated to make sure we had the best knowledge and experience regarding our culture. This is a trip every black person should take. I am truly blessed to have had the opportunity to experience Africa in such an amazing and spiritual way..."






Review 3: Samm Joyner, Minneapolis, USA, August 2023

"Excellent experience, beyond my expectations. Our guide was a Godsend. My favourite activity was visiting the school for the charity day."







Adrien, France, UK, Solo trip to Ghana, Travel plannerk on service and 10 day package





"Christina was able to show me the right direction when I was looking for a trip to West Africa. She had the right connections, and helped me build up a relevant agenda according to my ideal trip. She made sure I was safe and everything went according to plan in Ghana.I highly recommend Melanin Travels Magic for any trip related enquiries!"






Aqeny staff (Group of 8 corporate Travelers from NYC, USA), Corporate retreat , 10 day black heritage and leisure in Ghana, December 2022







Melanin Travels Magic was amazing from start to finish. The planning of our trip was designed to reflect what we asked for and then some. We had to change our trip date and Christine was very accommodating. We connected on Zoom before we left which was very helpful since we were in different parts of the world. Nana and his team were professional, a ton of fun and very knowledgeable. I really felt safe and cared for. Every guide that we encountered at all of the sites were amazing they explained the history with clarity, humour and honesty (they didn't sugar coat anything).

At the last minute we asked Melanin to add a naming ceremony to celebrate our Executive Director and they did. It was really special.





"If you are coming from the US all accommodations may not be what you are used to experiencing. It was a very humbling experience for me. I had to check my privilege day one. You may not have hot water all the time, you should bring a washcloth, beds might not be as soft as you are used to, bring sneakers or comfortable shoes, make sure you have repellent, sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat, 1000 cede= approx. $75, there are ATMs, food can be spicy, the smells of the cities might take getting used too (honestly no worse than the smell from Times Square train station in NY), the roads can be really bumpy in some parts, if you go on a jeep safari in Mole it can be rough if you have a bad back or are pregnant.

I mention the things above because they are things that I would like to know. Not one of the things I mentioned would have stopped me from wanting to go to Ghana. This trip was so powerful and transformational. As a Black, Muslim woman I connected so deeply. I can't say enough about how great Melanin Travel Magic team was. Medaase!!"





When we decided to go on a 10 day trip to Ghana for 8 people, we knew we needed a travel agent to handle all the details, Melanin Travels Magic was the perfect solution. There was clear communication during the preparation process, we had a great team lead us once we arrived and new memories that we will cherish forever. We felt welcomed, cared for and prepared for an awesome experience that far exceeded our expectations.





"What a wonderfully engaging trip. The team is awesome, the culture amazing and the whole experience is life changing!!!"
