Personal and unique travel experiences for individuals, small and large groups
Jolinaiko Eco Tours offers unique and authentic travel experiences for individual travellers, small and large groups to Ghana, Togo, Benin and Burkina Faso.
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.
There are different types of products we offer, which can be combined to your create your perfect holiday. We will provide examples of these products on this website in the near future.
The most common type of tour Jolinaiko Eco Tours organises are our Roundtrips. In a Roundtrip you will discover one or more countries or areas with one of our drivers and/or guides and you will visit various destinations.
If you are interested in exploring a specific aspect, we can organise a Themed Tour. For example you could decide to go on a Heritage Tour which predominantly focusses on the slave trade history. Other examples are tours focussed on cloth and beads making, traditional religions, voodoo or architecture.
If you are interested in nature, hiking and camping, and have your days full of bustling activities, our Adventures will be a suitable choice. We offer several three-to-seven day adventurous programmes in exciting locations.
To gain a more in-depth experience of local village life, we offer Cultural Immersions, whereby you will be part of a local community and participate in daily activities of the villagers. Your days are flexible and the experiences are characterized by serendipity. The Cultural Immersions we designed are three-to-seven day programmes, in which you will be based at one specific location, and undertake all your activities from there.
Family Bed and Breakfast stays
Last but not least we can include Family Bed and Breakfast stays at the Panou Family in Amrahia and the Adjordor Family in Kpando. Both families offer a perfect combination of comfortable accommodation where you have your own privacy, and at the same time feeling part of Ghanaian family-life and hospitality, with the opportunity to undertaking diverse activities in the direct surroundings.
Large group tours
We also have extensive experience in organising tours for large groups, often as local tour operator for travel agents abroad. We have experience in organising Roundtrips as well as Cultural Immersion programmes for group ranging from 10 to 50 people.

Ground handling services for journalists, photographers and tv crews
In recent years, Jolinaiko Eco Tours has frequently been engaged as a ground handler by broadcasting corporations, journalists, photographers and other media personnel covering stories in Ghana, Togo, Benin or Burkina Faso.
Jolinaiko offers assistance in obtaining the correct visa and permits from responsible governmental bodies, provides input for itineraries and once in the field, helps to create trust with local community members which can be important for obtaining local permission and support. We also assist journalists and researchers in making the necessary arrangements for their studies or interviews.
We have worked with Dutch (e.g. Grenzeloos Verliefd, BNN Op Reis), Belgian (e.g. Ghana Verkeers Bureau / TravelTV) and German (Prosiebensat1) television crews, journalists of (travel-) magazines (e.g. Trouw newspaper, Happinez Magazine), photographers, writers, etc.
