Explore Ghana

 

DAY 1

Posuban Shrines

Posuban shrines are fanciful buildings, lavishly decorated with fold-art, emblems, and a remarkable array of life-size statuettes. Each ornament unfolds the history, victories in battle and the general military experiences of the Fantes. These shrines are usually located on sites where an important enemy was slain or a famous battle was fought.

Kakum National Park

Excellent walking tours (and a canopy walkway) through the forest provide the opportunity to see much of Ghana’s indigenous plant life, as well as rare butterflies, birds and game (that could include the extraordinary Bongo and forest elephant). Highlights include:

Forest walks

Treetop canopy walkway

Bird watching

Medicinal plants

Cape Coast Castle

This is one of about forty “slave castles”, or large commercial forts, built on the Gold Coast of West Africa (now Ghana) by European traders. It was originally built by the Swedes for trade in timber and gold, but later used in the trans-Atlantic slave trade. It was used to hold slaves before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas, especially the Caribbean. This “gate of no return” was the last stop before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

Axim Beach Resort

A nice ecological environment that affords relaxation, comfort and beautiful scenery.

 

 


 

DAY 2

Fort Santo Antonio

It was a fort built by the Portuguese in 1515 near the town of Axim, in what is now Ghana. In 1642, the Dutch captured the fort and subsequently made it part of the Dutch Gold Coast. The Dutch expanded the fort considerably before they turned it over, with the rest of their colony, to the British in 1872.

 

Nzulezu

An amazing village where life goes on in the center of lake Tadane, just 90km west of Takoradi. The houses are built on stilts, and traditional village life adapts to the watery conditions. The Wetland is a habitat for a variety of animals like monkeys, crocodiles, marine turtles and fishes. Nzulezu also represents an outstanding interplay between man and the environment. The excursion from Beyin involves a walk through the reeds at the lake’s edge, and a trip in a dugout canoe to the village.

 

Ankasa Conservation Area

Ankasa Conservation Area is twin Wildlife Protected Area comprising Nini-Suhien National Park and the Ankasa Resource Reserve. Ankasa is the only area in the Wet Evergreen Forest Zoo. This being the area with the highest rainfall in Ghana, Ankasa is the richest forest in terms of botanical diversity in the Country. Its natural resources are enough to announce its presence on the world tourism map as haven and Ghana’s tourism address therefore, there is no wonder that Ankasa remains as one of the natural treasures of the nation. Its attractions include:

Nature walk

Bird watching

The Waterfall

The Bamboo Cathedral
