DAY 1.



We meet at JFK (John F Kennedy International Airport) to depart for Ghana!


This is where you will meet your travel coordinator and possibly the founder of Onyx Odyssey. This will more than likely be a red-eye flight, so you’ll have time to rest your eyes and fine-tune the final details of your solo exploration day! It’s time to start your experience!


DAY 2.



Welcome to Accra, Ghana!


Arrive in the country’s capital, Accra (ACC). Ghana, a nation on West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea, is known for its diverse wildlife, old forts and secluded beaches, such as Busua. 

Coastal towns Elmina and Cape Coast contain posubans (native shrines), colonial buildings and castles-turned-museums that serve as a testimony of the slave trade. North of Cape Coast, vast Kakum National Park has a treetop-canopy walkway over the rainforest. 

After getting settled, we’ll head to one of Accra’s most prestigious addresses for a chef-curated dinner on one of the highest buildings in the city, Skybar 25​.


DAY 3.



Enjoy a marvelous breakfast before visiting the historic museum & guest house at the former estate of writer & civil rights leader, W.E.B. DuBois. The Centre is located on immaculate grounds of serene beauty, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis, Accra, which surrounds it near the city’s center. The Centre is a complex of four major buildings which include the home where Dr. DuBois spent his last years, an Administrative building, the Marcus Garvey Guest House, and the tomb of Dr. DuBois and his dear wife Shirley Graham DuBois.


After our visit, we will have a traditional lunch and indulge in fabric shopping. 


In the evening, we will paint the town red and enjoy a hosted nightlife tour of Accra by sampling the most vibrate night spots.


DAY 4.



Today, we journey to Cape Coast to visit Elmina and the Cape Coast castles.

These fortresses were the last memory many slaves had of their homeland before being shipped off across the Atlantic. 

Over a thousand years ago dozens of castles and forts were built along the coastline of Ghana. It is here we will visit the “Door of No Return”, referring to the door the slaves exited from their homeland to never be seen again. 


After our visit we will conclude with a naming ceremony. In the naming ceremony, you will be given your Ghanian name in a traditional ceremony of recognition. 

Our evening continues with a lively beachside BBQ over a bonfire with music.

DAY 5.


Today we enjoy a day of shopping and relaxation. Beautiful shops are located at the Art Center in Ghana where you can find authentic fabrics, souvenirs and more for your shopping pleasure. 

After our shopping tour, the rest of the day is at leisure until the late evening where we will take on Sandbox Beach Club for a night out on the town! Trust us, it's going to be a VIBE!

DAY 6.


On our last full day in Accra, we recommend that you gather all your souvenirs or pick up garments to share with your loved ones.

For those still looking for fun, we’ll have a Ghanaian mixology class where you can learn how to make cocktails using local ingredients. 

DAY 7.


Rise and shine for your last morning in Accra. 


Enjoy a quiet morning by the pool to reflect on an amazing week. 


Your Onyx Odyssey experience private driver will then whisk you away to the airport (ACC) for your flight back home, where you are certain to return a different person.
