Ashanti African Tours are focused and committed to ethical and responsible travel here in West Africa. A percentage of our profits goes into our NGO Rainforest Rescue Ghana where we connect communities to the conservation of their environment through ethical tourism. To date, we have built 2 schools giving over 600 children access to education. Our company are also protecting Upper Guinea Rainforest, endangered birds, mammal and butterfly species through an eco-tourism project we are establishing where we have donated accommodation, reception centre, restaurant and school to a community showing them the immediate benefits of protecting the surrounding rainforest where the Yellow-headed Picathartes is found along with mammals like Long-tailed and Tree Pangolin.

Our groups pay an entrance fee, local guide fees, purchase food and drinks and rent the accommodation to sleep in with 1005 of the funds generated going into the community fund. There are 3 local communities that surround the forest benefiting from this fund. Prior to us starting the project we would hear a continuous chain saw operators cutting trees and also local hunters killing the wildlife, we are happy to report these have now stopped since we started our project. Booking with Ashanti African Tours helps conservation.
