Why It's A Deal On a recent Kayak search, we found round-trip airfare between New York and Accra for $1,158 (Turkish Airlines). Add that to about $195 for three nights at the Miklin Hotel, and about $240 for three nights at Elmina Beach Resort, and you'd pay at least $1,593 for airfare and hotels alone if you booked independently. Tours and transportation add an extra $1,000 per person, making this deal worth at least $2,593 for a savings of around $394.
More Optional tours are available, including a city tour of Kumasi, with transportation included ($225 per person), and a visit to Kakum National Park, famous for its tree-canopy walkways ($175 per person).
