What was the highlight or most memorable moment of your tour?
The two visits to villages in rural Africa were my highlights. To see the people living in such basis huts with no electricity or running water was memorable. they are happy though!
How was your Explore Tour Leader?
Very warm, very friendly and very effecient. In a country where there is no sense of urgency he made things happen.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
"1. Take along gifts for the poor of the villages - clothes you do not wear any more, sandals, pens, a football even.
2. Try the plantain chips sold by roadside vendors - better than normal crisps.
3. Relax and go with the flow."
The Kingdom of the Ashanti, a wonderful trip to Ghana in West Africa, a rich and vibrant culture and a naturally beautiful country. Our trip took us from Accra on the Atlantic coast to Bolgatanga in the far north close to the border with Burkina Faso, on the way visiting Kumasi the capital of the Ashanti Kingdom.
In Adanwomasi we watched the local men weave the colourful cloth proudly worn by the Ashanti people. In the market place a shopkeeper wanted to sell us a piece of the cloth telling us it was very useful for carring your baby. I asked how the baby stayed in place without falling out, she quickly disappeared and returned moments later with a "borrowed" baby and effortlessly swung it on her back wraped the cloth around the baby and tucked it up neatly - "easy", she proudly said ! One of those memorable moments that stay with you long after the trip is over.
Fast food takes on a new meaning when we stopped for lunch by the side of the road for deep fried yams but we did not try the barbecued bats ! The history of the slave trade gave us much to think about, overall a varied trip of culture, history, National Parks and rainforests. Ghana is well worth a visit, an excellent trip !
