If you are interested in experiencing the real West Africa, you have come to the right place.
Jolinaiko Eco Tours (pronounced ‘Jo-lin-eye-co’) is not merely a travel agency. True, we offer our travellers personally tailored guided tours to Ghana, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso. However, we also offer something much more – an opportunity to get a real taste of West Africa in the purest sense.
Experience the real West Africa with Jolinaiko
At Jolinaiko Eco Tours, based near Accra, the capital of Ghana, we take great pride in our own region. It gives us great pleasure to show off our unique mix of cultures, landscapes and people. Let us share our passion for West Africa with you. We would love to bring you in contact with our people and give you a better, clearer understanding of what this region is really all about.
Personal, flexible and reasonably priced travel
Our approach to travel is as personal and flexible as you want to make it. You decide the way you want to travel, which countries and destinations you want to visit and what you want to experience. Our prices are very reasonable and we offer tours to suit any budget.
Guided tours for individuals and small groups
Jolinaiko Eco Tours' main service is organising and guiding round-trips and tours for individual travellers and small groups.
When you first contact us after you have become interested in booking one of our tours, we take the time to ask you about your interests, wishes, travel experience and the level of travel comfort you prefer. Using your information and travel wishes, we create a personally tailored travel proposal and then send it to you for approval.
Travel agent for large group tours
We also have a lot of experience in organising tours for large groups. We are the local travel agent of choice for a few specialised tour operators in Europe and the Middle-East. We are always eager to expand our activities as preferred tour agent, so please contact us if you are looking for specialised local travel agents in West-Africa.
Car rental, the Jolinaiko Village Lodges and volunteering
Next to our tours, we offer car rental with drivers and guides if you wish. Extraordinary community experiences await you in the Jolinaiko Village Lodges in the rural villages Atsiekpoe (in Ghana’s Volta Region) and Davedi (in South West Togo).
For those of you who would like to experience a prolonged adventure, you might like to take up a volunteer position with us for a few weeks or months. We would be happy to arrange a volunteer placement for you!
The Sunbird Lodge
We would love to welcome you as our guest in the Sunbird Lodge, our family bed and breakfast in Amrahia, close to Accra. It is a comfortable and peaceful place, perfect to acclimatise after arriving in Ghana, or to relax a few days after your tour. It is great as a base for sightseeing or doing business in Accra, Tema or the Volta Region. For volunteers and backpackers, we also have great budget accomodation.
