Day 1 & 3
We travel to Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti Kingdom of Gold. You will arrive in Kumasi in the early afternoon in time to visit Manhiya Palace which was built in 1925 to receive Asantehene (ruler of the Ashanti people) Prempeh I when he returned from exile in the Seychelles to resume residence in Kumasi. Manhiya Palace was used by Ashanti kings until 1974.The palace is now a museum, containing a range of items relating to the Ashanti Kingdom, particularly Prempeh I (ruled 1888-1931) and Prempeh II (ruled 1931-1970). Here you will obtain firsthand information on the legacies of the Ashanti kingdom, a regal history that dates back to 1700 and is told with relics and artifacts.
You will also visit the nearby Okomfo Anokye Sword, an important symbol of Ashanti unity that marks the spot where the Golden Stool “descended from the sky” and has been in place for more than 300 years. Legend says the Ashanti Kingdom would disintegrate should the sword be removed from its present location.
We will visit Bonwire, where the famous Kente cloth is handmade on looms in a time-honored tradition passed down through generations. You will see the Kente weavers in process of creating Kente cloth in various styles, and have the opportunity to try your hand at the ancient craft.
We have a night life swimming in the pool. We move to Accra on the third day.
We visit the Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Wildlife Sanctuary is found at Boabeng and Fiema, twin communities 22 kilometers away from the Nkoranza North District of the Bono East region, Ghana. The 4.4 kilometer square (km²) forest, believed to have been created in the 1970s, houses many trees, birds, reptiles, deer and monkeys, two of which are the Geoffrey’s Pied Colobus and Campbell Mona monkey.
It is a home for about 700 monkeys. The village is a community where monkeys and human beings live together. The inhabitants in the village always leave food outside their homes for the animals. The monkeys see human beings as their own.
The monkeys in the sanctuary are protected by the traditional laws on the area.
if there is time we will visit the Kintampo Waterfalls.
