Citi FM/Citi TV’s highly anticipated week-long trip of a lifetime, the 2024 Heritage Caravan, has reached full capacity, with all tickets sold out over a month before the journey.
For eager patrons who missed out on securing seats for this year’s exhilarating journey, they’ll need to mark their calendars for next year’s excursion in 2025.
Early bird patrons who secured their spots are in for an unforgettable 8-day expedition across the diverse landscapes of 14 out of the 16 regions of Ghana.
Scheduled to take place from March 3 to 10, 2024, the Heritage Caravan has become a hallmark event, eagerly awaited each year.
During an interview on the Citi Breakfast Show on January 24, Frema Adunyame, Head of Events and Partnerships at Citi FM/Citi TV, reminisced about the overwhelming response seen in 2023, with patrons already inquiring about the 2024 edition back in December.
“Last year  too, we recorded thesame. Even when we were preparing for the 2023 Citiuation All White Outdoor Party, people were already calling about the 2024 Heritage Caravan in December. The day we closed registration, five people made payments. If you are still on the registration list, you can’t make payments now. If you are not on the registration list, don’t even bother to call. You can join next year. Well, we hate to say we told you so.”
Responding to inquiries about accommodating more participants, Frema cited infrastructure constraints in certain regions as a limiting factor, urging future patrons to secure their spots early to avoid disappointment.
“We wish we could accommodate more, but unfortunately, our main challenge lies in infrastructure. Beyond Accra, Kumasi, and Takoradi, in places like Tamale and Bolgatanga, the availability of hotels is very limited. Moreover, the quality of hotels we select for our patrons is stringent, which adds to the challenge. Unfortunately, this is where our limitations lie.”
She assured participants of a culinary adventure, cultural immersion, and exposure to tourism highlights across the regions visited.
Embarking from the vibrant Greater Accra Region, the Heritage Caravan will traverse the picturesque terrains of Volta, Eastern, Bono, Ahafo, Bono East, Upper East, Northern, Savannah, North East, Ashanti, Western North, Western, and Central Regions before returning to Greater Accra.
The Heritage Caravan offers a unique road trip experience, providing participants with an intimate encounter with Ghana’s cultural heritage.
Since its inception in 2016, the Caravan has explored every region, visiting iconic sites such as Mole National Park, the Military Museum, Bonwire Kente Exhibition, the Slave Memorial at Assin Manso, Elmina Castle, Larabanga Mosque, Nzulezu village, and the crocodile pond at Paga, among others.As a flagship initiative of Citi TV and Citi FM, the Heritage Caravan is held annually in March as part of the Heritage Month celebrations.
The Heritage Caravan 2024 is powered by Citi TV with support from 97.3 Citi FM. It’s proudly sponsored by the National Lottery Authority, Goil PLC, and Hollard Insurance.
