Accra, the capital of Ghana, has kept its unique identity despite the fast-paced development of the last decades with is modern buildings and large avenues. The luxuriant administrative area, punctuated with elegant villas built during the first half of the 19th century, reminds us that Ghana was the most flourishing colony in Africa. Take the opportunity to visit a workshop specialized in "fantasy coffins". These unique handcrafted coffins can reflect any shape: fruits, animals, fish, cars, airplanes…. the only limit being imagination! Started in Accra, these flamboyant coffin designs are by now collected worldwide and exposed in museums. After that, explore James Town historic neighbourhood, inhabited by Ga people. Facing the Ocean is where native people life fully unfolds: a village surrounded by the city! Here all economic activities follow very different rules from the ones governing "the city" (business area), just a few hundred meters away.

DAY TWO - Monday, April 29, 2019 - Accra/Takoradi


Breakfast and a scenic drive to Elmina

After breakfast at the hotel, depart the pier for the scenic, approximately four-hour drive to Elmina for an opportunity to visit castles and dungeons, and remains from the ancient gold, ivory and slave trades. Elmina Castle is the oldest and largest European building in Africa, and links the history of the continent to world history. In 1482, Christopher Columbus and Bartolommeo Diaz arrived with ten caravels to build a castle under Portuguese authority. This is how the story of Elmina started; the castle, a port and village in contact with Europe and Americas for more than five centuries, long before the start of Colonial times. At different times throughout its history, Elmina Castle was used as a warehouse to trade gold and ivory, and eventually, slaves.


Elmina Castle walking tour and fishing harbour with large, colourful canoes

Take a guided walking tour of Elmina Castle, and marvel at the ongoing renovations that have earned this historic landmark its designation as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Facing the castle is a unique fishing harbour with hundreds of large, colourful canoes.

Built by the Portuguese in 1516, the Axim Castle was subsequently owned by both the Dutch and British. The castle has kept the old shape of a European fort, which drastically contrasts with the local background comprised of simple fishermen villages and colourful canoes in the harbour.


Scenic drive to Nzulezo, canoe-trip to the Nzulezo Stilt Village and a guided walking tour

Next, re-board your coach and continue driving for approximately 1.5-hours to Nzulezo.

The former capital of the French 'Côte d'Ivoire' colony, Grand Bassam is now a maritime leisure resort for the Abidjanese. Thanks to its calm avenues shaded by tall trees, large bougainvillea and well-preserved Colonial buildings, Grand Bassam has a magical atmosphere.


Grand Bassam tour and visit to the Costume Museum

Upon arrival, take a guided tour of Grand Bassam. Along the way, see the Old Post Office, a jewel of French-Colonial architecture, and visit the Costume Museum. Located in the former governor's palace with its large outer staircase, the Costume Museum is a true architectural gem, and its unique collection of tribal costumes, masks, ornaments and ethnographic photographs offers an interesting perspective of the country history and culture.


Drive to Abidjan and lunch at a local restaurant

Following your tour, re-board your coach for the approximately one-hour drive to Abidjan, one of the main economic hubs of West Africa. Upon arrival, proceed for lunch at a local restaurant.


Guided orientation drive through Abidjan City, with a few stops to reach some highlights on-foot

After lunch, take a guided orientation drive through Abidjan City, with a few stops to reach some highlights on-foot. If you look beyond the lagoon, see how the 'plateau' (City District) is growing, not horizontally as in most African towns but vertically, with its large modern buildings and skyscrapers. Not much land is available, and the little that is available has to be constantly extorted from the waters of the Ebrié Lagoon, and to the east by the incredible silhouette of the Saints Peter and Paul Cathedral.


Tour of the Quarter of Youpugon and a transfer to your hotel for check-in

Next, re-board your coach and proceed to the Quarter of Youpugon, situated near the Banco River forest, and see the 'Fanico', the colourful clothes-washers. At the conclusion of your visit, transfer to your hotel for check-in. The remainder of the afternoon is at your leisure.

Today with nearly one million inhabitants, Kumasi is a sprawling city with a fantastic central market, one of the biggest in Africa. Every kind of Ashanti craft (leather goods, pottery, Kente cloth) is found here, along with just about every kind of tropical fruits and vegetables.

Please note: Participants in this program should schedule their arrival flight into Accra, Ghana. Please check with your travel professional for details regarding visa requirements and yellow fever inoculations for Ghana.

DAY 1: TEMA/ ACCRA

Disembark the ship at the Tema harbour. Your land program starts with a city tour of Accra. Along the way, stop for a visit at the National Museum, one of the first works of independent Ghana. The idea inspiring the Museum is to relate Ghana art to the rest of the continent and to showcase the existence of an African history as part of general history of Humanity.


Enjoy a stop in the old area of James Town, inhabited by the indigenous population known as the Ga. Here you will find local production of smoked fish, the market, and an old house used as prison with a view overlooking the fishing harbour. Another fascinating and final stop is at a workshop specializing in building fantasy coffins. These handcrafted coffins are in the shape of fruits, animals, fish, cars, airplanes….the only limit is the intended occupant's imagination. Started in Africa, these flamboyant coffin designs are now collected all over the world and exhibited in museums.

Stop for lunch that will either be provided at a local restaurant or be offered picnic style.


After lunch head to Akossombo, where we find the largest manmade lake in the world, with a shoreline measuring almost 5,000 km.
