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.

Guided tours for individuals, couples, families and small groups

Jolinaiko Eco Tours' main service is organising and guiding round-trips and tours for individual travellers, couples, families 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.

Large group tours

We have extensive experience in organising tours for large groups, mostly as local tour operator for travel agents abroad.

Tour operator of choice for travel agents all over the world

We are the local West African tour operator of choice for many specialised travel agencies in Europe and the Middle-East. We are always eager to expand our activities as preferred tour operator, so please contact us if you are looking for a specialised local tour operator for Ghana, Togo, Benin and/or Burkina Faso.

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 at one of our partner organisations. We would be happy to arrange a volunteer placement for you, contact us for the possibilities.

The Sunbird Lodge Bed and Breakfast Accra

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.

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.

Ginny,
