Cultural & Heritage Travel Specialist

Greetings! Thanks for taking the time to view my Travel Leaders Profile!  I have been in the hospitality industry for 19 years with experience in both hotel sales as well as event planning. In 2013 I earned the Certified Meeting Professional designation from the Events Industry Council (formerly Convention Industry Council). Along with selling travel, I also teach hospitality courses to the future leaders in the industry. I personally believe in the importance of experiences over material possessions. The memories you create while traveling will remain with you forever. It is the one thing you buy that makes your richer!

My area of expertise is both family and group travel to island and African destinations. I also coordinate international meetings and events worldwide. I believe that the world is not such a big, scary place when you take time to immerse yourself in the culture of others. I have family connections to Africa (Ghana, specifically) and I have learned first-hand how that this beautiful, mineral rich continent has the potential to change the lives of those who visit with an open heart and mind.

I give my clients personalized care and attention both prior to, during and even after your travels. Let's connect and start planning your unforgettable adventure!

Each year, our company hosts several small group tours we call Group Getaways. Visit the website: www.ohenebatravel.com for more information on upcoming tours and to register today.

Mole National Park - Ghana

I'm so excited to share my recent trip to Ghana with you. While I've been to Ghana several times, I've never traveled to the Northern Region. This time I made a special trip to Mole National Park to enjoy some time with the elephants!

Our African Adventure

Reviewed By KJ - Atlanta, Georgia | Traveled to Accra ~ Ghana ~ Africa
Working with Akua Washington was wonderful. She is organized, efficient, and detail oriented. From the initial consultation, planning, finalizing our details, departure to Accra, and our return. Akua was with our group every step of the way. She listened to our wish list and from there created the perfect trip with the perfect mix of beach vibes (his wishes) and history and culture (my wishes). She provided us with several itineraries to choose from, and all itineraries were within budget. She guided us on local customs, what visa, and vaccinations would be needed, and how to exchange money. She also searched for flights and booked our flights. All that we had to do was pack our bags. When we arrived in Ghana, our tour guide was friendly and eagerly awaiting our arrival. All of the tour guides were very knowledgeable of the country, and made us feel right at home. I never felt like a tourist per se. I will most definitely call on Akua when I am ready to book my next adventure.

Our Ghana Trip

Reviewed By Percy and Debra - Tyrone, Georgia | Traveled to Ghana ~ Africa
Akua was wonderful to work with planning our custom tour to Ghana, Togo and Benin. We started planning our trip more than a year out and prior to the COVID pandemic. She advised us on required vaccines and medications, getting visas, PCR testing and anything else we needed to be ready for our trip. Planning travel during the uncertainty of the pandemic was a little stressful. We trusted Akua’s advice and experience to help us make decisions about our itinerary. She kept us updated on travel requirements at home and for our destinations. What started as a three-country tour became an extended Ghana tour when Ghana’s land borders remained closed due to the pandemic. Akua worked with us and our Ghana guide to ensure we had a fantastic tour. (We enjoyed Ghana so much that we extended our tour for a few extra days.) Akua wasn’t physically traveling with us but she was always available when needed. Our trip would have been very different had we not used her professional services.

Life-changing trip!!!

Reviewed By Sharmelle - Riverside, CA | Traveled to Ghana ~ Africa
I feel honored and blessed to have found Akua as my travel agent for my trip to Ghana. She went above and beyond to ensure that we had a wonderful trip. She suggested places to go and things to do that I would have never thought of. Akua was quick to respond to our emails, texts and calls, even when upon our arrival in Ghana. My birthday trip to Ghana was memorable and life changing and I thank Akua for making it happen! She is professional , friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend making Akua your travel agent and I will surely be using her in the future.

Myers Africa Dream Trip

Reviewed By Sheryl Myers - St Louis, Mo | Traveled to Africa
Akua didn't miss a step in planning this African experience for me and my husband! She was very helpful specifically with the small things you don't think you will need when you travel. She made everything so easy and worked every little detail. I really thought this would be a challenge because we went to several countries in Africa. But because she's so knowledgeable about Africa it was a smooth trip

Trip of a lifetime!

Reviewed By E & J - Walnut Creek, OH | Traveled to Ghana ~ Africa
When I first started looking into travel arrangements for Ghana, I felt overwhelmed. We had traveled in East Africa many times, but this was a first for us and with two teenagers. After talking with Akua, I felt like it would all be manageable, and more importantly, a wonderful trip. We visited our niece in the Peace Corps, then traveled some before returning home. Our travel arrangements all went very smoothly, from the early stages of planning and getting immunizations, to the last day of the trip. We were fortunate also to actually meet and travel with Akua for part of the time. We are so glad our paths crossed and we are so very grateful for all the work Akua and Michael did to make our trip a success. We would definitely recommend her services to anyone travelling to Ghana. Thank you!
