Akwaaba! You’re finally here! On arrival in Kotaka International Airport (ACC), you will be met by our representative, assisted and transferred to your hotel. After you are settled into your new homes, we will introduce you to the rest of your crew for the week; an intimate group of individuals from all over the world ready to experience Ghana culture and history.

THE REAL ACCRA
Day 2 (20th August 2021)
The best way to get to know a destination is by gaining a bit of its history. Today, we’ll be taking you on a tour that gives you a deep dive into Accra’s roots. We’ll immediately immerse ourselves in the local culture by trekking through the city to visit historical landmarks, sampling traditional foods, learning about the people and getting our first taste of Ghanaian hospitality, visiting the world famous Makola market, getting some custom-made clothes by a local tailor, and stopping at the Independence Square to take in the amazing view.
HISTORY DAY – CAPE COAST
Day 3 (21st August 2021)
We will visit Cape Coast Castle. Cape Coast Castle is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and was one of the holding dungeons and departure points for Africans being sent to slavery in the Americas ( Men , Women and Children). (Beware; a visit to the dungeon is usually an emotional experience for people of African descent and for non-Africans). The castle is home to the infamous “Door of No Return”. You’ll walk away with a history lesson you won’t get in any textbook.
We’ll also visit Kakum National Park for a walk across the canopies that line the treetops to enjoy an unrivalled view one hundred feet above the rainforest.
Day 4 (22nd August 2021)
Bring your sunscreen because today is all about the beach! We will be heading out of Accra and to the gorgeous Ada Beach for a bit of sun and relaxation. Vibe out while you have a meal and soothe yourself in the clear waters.
We party at night.
Day 5 (23rd August 2021)
Today, we’ll head to Chale Wote, an annual street festival that brings art, music, dance and performance out into Accra. More than 200 artists from all walks of life exhibit works in the streets of Jamestown, Accra, and we’ll spend the day taking it all in!
JOLLOF OR OTOR 101
