Wander through the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, Independence Square and W.E.B. DuBois Centre to learn about the Pan African culture, the history of Gold Coast and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Enjoy the bustling city and some of the top restaurants and nightclubs. Enjoy the vibes of the beach with a welcome dinner and bonfire.
Then whisk away to the Ashanti (Asante) Region to experience the largest market in West Africa. Visit the Palace of the Ashanti (Asante) King and the museums to explore the culture’s history. We will also experience the production of weaving baskets and other handcrafts. Get an introduction to local drumming music by the locals at the art center.
Highlights also include a traditional naming ceremony, a meeting with the local queen mother of the Adinkra Village, a visit to Cape Coast Castle where you will witness the dungeons our ancestors were kept captive before being shipped away to the “unknown” and the Door of No Return, the door where our ancestors never looked back and to never return “home” again. Take an adventure high up in the canopies at Kakum National Park.
Your journey will end at the beautiful and relaxing Aburi Botanical Gardens in the Aburi Mountains.
