Day 2

ACCRA | ACCRA CITY TOUR | KWAME NKRUMAH MAUSOLEUM | ARTS AND CRAFT CENTRE | THE MARKOLA OPEN MARKET | TESHIE COFFIN MAKERS

Accra, the capital of Ghana, is an interesting city that, although is quickly evolving, has kept its own identity, reflected in both modern and old areas where traditional activities continue to hold sway.

We visit the area of the coffin makers, with their elaborately shaped coffins representing fruits, animals, fish, cars, airplanes…. and the only limit is the intended occupant’s imagination. Originally coming from Africa, these flamboyant coffin designs are part of collections all over the world and exhibited in museums.

A visit to a national park erected in memory of Osagyefo (the Messiah) Doctor Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first president and one of its founding fathers. Built on a former British polo field, it was the point where Nkrumah declared independence in 1957. The park consists of five acres of land and holds a museum tracing Nkrumah’s life. There are many personal items on display, but the centerpiece is the mausoleum, Nkrumah and his wife’s final resting place.

A visit to William Edward Burghardt Du Bois was an African-American civil rights activist who became a citizen of Ghana in the 1960s. He was known as the ‘Father of Pan-Africanism’. The center, where he and his wife once lived, and where they are now buried, houses his personal library, a small museum with a handful of personal effects such as his graduation robes. The couple’s mausoleum is surrounded by Asante stools, a seminar room, a restaurant, a gallery, an amphitheater and a research center for Pan-African history and culture.

The Arts Center where you will be warmly welcomed by African drums. A visit to Ghana's oldest open market where there is a variety of products. Explore through the wonderful African open markets where you will see buyers bargaining. The Abgogloshie Yam Tubers markets, The Kokomba Markets where you could locate all the slums of Ghana. A walk through the slums areas of the capital is worthy to experience.

* Night Life

We visit the Skybar 25. The Skybar 25 is Accra’s premier rooftop venue. Offering breathtaking views of the city from the tallest building in West Africa, we bring you an entertainment experience like no other.

A visit to the +233 Jazz Bar & Grill(named after the Ghanaian dialing code) is an intelligently designed club that has live bands six days a week. The music varies between highlife, blues, jazz (although rare hip-hop) and anything else good.

At different times the castle has been used as a warehouse to trade gold, ivory and, eventually, slaves. The castle we visit today is the result of successive extension works and is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Outside the castle, a wonderful fishing village with lots of large colorful fishing boats – every day these canoes are guided by skilled fishermen across strong ocean waves and currents, “fighting” to earn a living.

The alleys in the old town have a lively atmosphere, going back to a time when Elmina was a wild colonial town.
