    KAKUM  PARK, CANOPY WALKWAY  AND SLAVE CASTLES

    Day 2

    This morning we travel through the historic Denkyira Kingdom to Kakum National Park, one of West Africa’s surviving tropical rain forests.  Kakum is  home to over 40 large mammals and 400 bird species as well as many species of butterflies, flora and fauna. The most popular attraction is the Canopy walkway,   made up of seven bridges extending 330m, hanging 30m (100 feet) above the forest floor.

    We continue  to Elmina,  this is one of the  most visited areas in Ghana and is a  must-see for first time  travellers  to Ghana. 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. (Beware, a visit to the dungeon is usually an emotional experience for people of African descent and also for  non-Africans). The castle is home to the infamous “Door of No Return”.

    In the evening we enjoy a bonfire night at the beach with drumming and dancing.

    Accommodation is in Cape Coast.

    KUMASI, CAPITAL OF THE ASHANTI  KINGDOM

    Day 3 & 4

    Next stop is at Assin  Manso, the burial site of two former slaves from the U. S. and Jamaica whose remains were re-interred in August 1998 during Ghana’s first Emancipation Day Celebration. Here you will see the  “Slave River” where captured Africans were washed before being confined in the Slave Castles to await shipment to the Americas and the Caribbean.

    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.

    If there is time, 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. You can go to sleep if you want 🙂

    Accommodation is in Kumasi.
