Experience Ghana through Weekend Getaways!

Despite its hidden charm, Banko and the Ashanti region remain undiscovered by most, often overshadowed by the bustling tourist hubs along the coast and the occasional visitor traffic in the nearby city of Kumasi. The Ashanti region is closer than you think.
Our mission is to debunk myths and encourage you to delve deeper into Ghana’s hidden gems starting with Banko and the Ashanti region. 

Let go of any hesitations about exploring Banko and embrace the adventure that awaits in this culturally rich and accessible region.

Are you ready to embark on a journey of discovery? Read on to learn more about the enchanting Ashanti region and why it’s a must-visit destination in Ghana.

Exciting Weekend Adventures Await in Ashanti!

We’re thrilled to announce an effortless way for you to experience the beauty of our Ashanti region over the weekend! As you immerse yourself in the unexplored wonders of this area, you’ll also be supporting the Banko Women Organization. 

The four of us had a fantastic stay at the hostel. Pat is mega friendly and enthusiastic. We booked the nature weekend and were able to swim at a waterfall, do two hikes and have a cooking class. Absolutely worth a visit!
