This year 2019 marks 400 years after the arrival of the first recorded landing of a slave ship in Virginia, which was the beginning of the horrendous Middle Passage TransAtlantic Slave Trade. On July 25th through August 3rd, African Diaspora Tourism and Yates Tours will take descendants of former enslaved Africans on a triumphant return to their ancestral home of Ghana, West Africa to Celebrate PANAFEST 2019.  

We are asking travel agents, tour guides, organization, church and travel club leaders to join us in our mission to get as many people throughout the African Diaspora to return home to Ghana for this most significant homecoming. You will be given top commission on each person that you can get to attend. This is a joint mission for people of color throughout the Diaspora, especially in the USA.


This will be a one-of-a-kind cultural heritage experience for all who join this most significant historic tour! The festival is expected to bring communities of Africans together in the spirit of re-uniting the African Family beyond the distance and time.The Diaspora must attend in record numbers to commemorate 400 years since first departing the Motherland.


Ghana has a glorious history, an inimitable heritage, and lasting monuments that put her at the helm of Pan-Africanism in Africa. Firstly she boasts of being the first sub-Saharan African Nation to attain political independence. Secondly the Nkrumah factor played a significant part in consolidating Ghana as a leading light in Pan-Africanism. Thirdly, two prominent Pan-Africanists, Dr DuBois and Padmore, lived, worked, died and were buried in Ghana. Fourthly, the Nkrumah Mausoleum, DuBois centre and Padmore African research Library are monuments that place her at the centre of Pan Africanism. Also the forts and castle with their slave dungeons serve as a reminder of how the African family was disunited and dispersed through the holocaust of slavery perpetrated by Europeans for over 400 years.
