“Knowing is not guessing and Implementing is also not theorizing” This is how we managed to tackle the challenges and opportunities in the Travel, Tourism and Hospitality industry in the year 2017. The year cannot end without appreciating the contributions of Kaya Tours Ghana Limited in the Promotion, Marketing and Education of tourism in Ghana and Africa
I have been long fascinated about travel and tourism with its related businesses for over 12 years with wide experiences in Destination Imaging, Marketing, Tour Operations, Tour guiding etc.
I shall forever be grateful to the University of Cape Coast Graduate School and the Department of tourism and hospitality.
In delivering Ghana’s Economic performance from a nontraditional export point of view travel, tourism and hospitality are the key determinants for the country’s GDP.
This article is a healthy contrast to the notion that tourism operations and management can be partisan political. South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, Dubai, Hong Kong, Seychelles, Singapore, Mauritius, Israel just to mention a few are outstanding destinations raking billions of dollars from tourism through a strong comprehensive sustainable tourism plans and policies devoid of partisan politicking.
At Kaya Tours Ghana Ltd our core values are Competence, Creativity, Collaboration, Commitment and Customer Service Excellence
Passion for a cause that fuels energy, Intelegence and creativity has been our driving force.
At kaya Tours limited, our year began in April 2017, when we successfully organized an experiential road fun trip from Accra through Bunsu Aboretum to Kwahu. The rationale of this trip was to enlighten the patrons of the trip on Destinations and their unique attributes. There are amazing attractions along the route to Kwahu that most people don’t know anything about them .The Bunsu Aboretum canopy walkway, the Kwahu Twenedurase mystical cave and the Air Jay Zipline are one complete package that can be found in the Eastern region of Ghana after one to two hours’ drive from Accra the capital of Ghana.
In May 2017, a team of journalists and tour operators were taken to São Tomé to experience how conservation is key to sustainable Eco tourism. It is important for us to keep good environmental practices at our leisure attractions including the beaches.
In our desire to promote and grow domestic tourism in Ghana, there is a saying that goes like “catch them young and they will forever be yours “. Almost two hundred school pupils from primary four and five of Bishop Bowers School were taken on a Domestic Educational Tour in Accra. The tour took the children to Accra Zoo,the Airforce Base at Burma Camp and the Osu Christianborg Castle to bring them to the reality of Ghana’s rich history.
In this same month Kaya tours joined the Hon. Minister for Tourism Culture and Arts on working visit to the western region , which took us to the birthplaces of Ghana’s first president , Dr Kwame Nkrumah and Alfred Paa Grant one of the founding fathers of Ghana and financier of the UGCC Party in Axim to strategize marketing and positioning strategies for these heritage attractions .This was kaya tours support to the ministry’s campaign dubbed “See Ghana , Eat Ghana , Wear Ghana and Feel Ghana” . We believe this awareness sensitization program will go a long way to reinforce the call and drive in promoting domestic tourism in Ghana.
INTERNATIONAL TRADE AND TOURISM EXHIBITION
Kaya tours among other 18 parliamentary select committee members on Agriculture and Energy ,The Ghana Free Zones Board , Ghana Investment Promotion Authority, National Petroleum Authority and others were invited by the World Trade Center Accra to participate in International Trade Summit in Moscow, Russia July 2017.
Kaya tours displayed excellence and professionalism at the trade summit to secure export trade agreement for Kasapreko Company limited and power attorney with Volgograd state technical university in Russia.

Our passion for cause fuels energy, intelligence and creativity but the brain chemistry is in part responsible.
The year 2017 ended with a successful religious pilgrimage tourism trip to Israel, the Holy Land.
Like many organizations, Kaya Tours Ghana Limited had to figure out how to balance local needs with a worldwide view but creating the need for domestic tourism with a global perspective is a daunting challenge. We have learnt lessons from our mistakes and will pursue excellence in the years ahead.
