Welcome to Jolinaiko Eco Tours


Greetings travellers!

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.

Tours and other travel experiences for individuals, couples, families and small groups

Jolinaiko Eco Tours' main service is organising and guiding roundtrips and tours for individual travellers, couples, families and small groups.

Besides roundtrips, we offer several other unique travel experiences, which can be combined to your create your perfect holiday. We have Themed Tours, highlighting specific aspects like history, arts & crafts, traditional religion or architecture. We offer exciting Outdoor Adventures if you love nature, hiking and camping. If you'd like to dive deep and go slow, we have inspiring Cultural Immersion programs in which you stay in a rural village for several days to experience the daily life of its inhabitants.

When you first contact us after you have become interested in travelling with us, 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 feedback and approval.

Enjoy your stay,

Apollo Panou & Cindy Noordermeer-Panou,
Jolinaiko Eco Tours.

I travelled with Apollo for two weeks throughout Ghana, Togo, and Benin. I had the freedom to go where I wanted, when I wanted, as fast as I wanted, and change plans daily, all with the security of a knowledgeable guide.

Through Apollo’s professionalism, excellent conversation, courtesy, open mindedness, tolerance and enthusiasm I was able to learn and live Africa more so than many of my other trips combined. Africa is no longer a distant place on a map, or a show on T.V. but many faces, smiles, songs, smells, colors and friends to me. Travel needs to be experienced in this way.

The world needs more Apollo’s to bring us all a little closer together, understand each other better, break barriers and live and breathe a country that is not our own. Thank you for the fantastic memories, daily experiences, conversation, trust, comfort, laughs and friendship.

Can't think of anything I would have changed.
