    Itinerary

    Itineraries on some departure dates may differ, please select the itinerary that you wish to explore.

    Day 1 - Join tour Accra

    Join your tour in Accra today. Depending on the schedule of your flights, you may be able to explore the city independently before meeting the rest of the group, who

    will arrive from London on day 2 in the early morning.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: None

    Day 2 - Explore the old town of Accra and drive to Koforidua

    This morning we will have some free time to recover from the flight before heading into Accra for some sightseeing. Although records of Accra date back to the 15th century, the capital of Ghana is a modern city with independence monuments and countless back streets. We'll take a tour to see The Kwame Nkrumah circle and Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum and will drive through James Town, an area of colonial architecture topped with a 30m lighthouse. We'll stop to pause at Fort Ussher where Kwame Nkrumah was imprisoned (an un-developed Alcatraz) before continuing to Independence Square, a Pseudo- soviet curiosity in a city that is otherwise so overflowing with chaotic life. There may be time also to visit the National Museum and the National Craft Centre before we drive to Koforidua.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 3 - Visit an Ashanti Shrine and Bunso arboretum

    This morning we visit an arboretum, a substation of Ghana's Cocoa Research Institute. Walking through a secondary forest, we will find indigenous trees, fruit, nuts and some species introduced to Ghana during the colonial times. The forest also features a myriad of birds, butterflies and scented herbs. Later today we head north to our overnight stop at Techiman.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 4 - To Mole National Park via Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary

    Our drive today takes us first to Boabeng-Fiema village and monkey sanctuary, home to several families of Colobus and Mona monkeys, considered sacred in Ghana. Close by are the 25m high Kintampo Falls, an area also home to a variety of birds, butterflies, indigenous flowers and trees. Before finally reaching Mole National Park we will also stop to visit the Larabanga mosque which is reputedly the oldest building in Ghana, but no-one can quite agree on its age! Some sources date it to the 13th century, which is highly improbable since Islam had barely reached the region at that time. The origins of the mosque relate to a traveller who found a mystic stone, threw his spear and then slept on it. He dreamt about a mosque and when he awoke, the foundations had mysteriously been laid around him. Whatever its origins, it is a striking mudtick building, with minarets and painted walls. We finally enter Mole National Park, the largest park in Ghana. Established in 1958, Mole National Park is mostly flat savannah broken by a high escarpment. Its 4840 square km are home to over 90 species of mammals and 300 species of birds.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 5 - Foot safaris in Mole National Park

    A highlight of our trip - we make foot safaris with National Park rangers in both the morning and afternoon in search of some of the wildlife which lives here. Species commonly seen include elephant, several kinds of antelope, and monkey (including the Green Vervet and Red Patas monkeys). Up to 150 migratory bird species may also be seen in the Park, depending on the time of our visit.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 6 - Exploring the Bolgatanga region

    Heading north via Gondja and Dagomba villages we reach Ghana's far north, close to the border with Burkina Faso. It's nearby hills venerated for their many sacred ancestral shrines, and we should have time to visit a local oracle.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 7 - Visit a Bolgatanga market and traditional houses

    We spend a full day in the Bolgatanga region, visiting the town's vibrant market and nearby Gurunsi 'mud-house' communities with their unique architecture. This area is known as the handicrafts centre of Ghana where handmade products such as straw baskets and handwoven baskets and hats can all be found but as well as this the area is a big crossroads for all different types of people. 'Bolga' as it's informally known, sits very close to the border with Burkina Faso and the main market is a large trading post of handicrafts, food, leather goods and handmade jewellery, plus it's where Islamic influences from the north meets Christianity from the south and mosques and churches can be found within close proximity of one another.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 8 - Navrongo Cathedrale with Gurunsi paintings and Dagarti village

    Our exploration continues as we turn west toward Wa, capital of the Upper West region. Our journey takes us through the rustic town of Navrongo. In an otherwise mostly Muslim area, Navrongo's predominantly Christian feel reflects its claim as the home of Catholicism in northern Ghana. We will visit the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows, a traditionally constructed building notable for its frescos and Gurunsi paintings. We will also pass through Dagarti villages on our route.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 9 - Explore the Wa region, visit Lobi villages and meet a tribal chief

    We spend much of today exploring Lobi villages. The Lobi comprise a number of ethnic groups in both Ghana and Burkina Faso whose name translates as Children of the Forest. Naturally shy and mistrustful, for years the Lobi had to endure constant attacks from the Guiriko and Kenedougou, as well as the less than sympathetic attentions of the French. Fiercely independent, they still adhere to many of their traditional customs and animist practices, worshipping distinctive wooden fetishes and continuing to uphold their age-old beliefs in the spirit world. Residing in fortified mudbrick compounds in family groups, much like their Dagarti neighbours, the men still carry bows as their ancestors have for generations: the Lobi still have a fearsome reputation as hunters and warriors.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 10 - Visit an old Sudanese mosque and head to Techiman

    Our drive today takes us south through remote areas of Ghana's far west through the small settlements of Mawule, Banda Nkwanta, and then to Bole where we will pause to see the beautiful mud and stick mosque.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 11 - Possibly find an Ashanti funeral to visit in Kumasi

    Kumasi is the capital of the Ashanti Kingdom. In the 18th century it was the terminus for the slave trading routes but in the 19th century hostilities between the British colonists and Ashanti culminated in the city being burnt. Now it is Ghana's second largest city. This afternoon we have time to visit the Museum in the Cultural Center. Here we see replicas of the Golden Stool, a sacred object to the Ashanti, for the original stool contains the 'sumsum' or the spirit of the entire Ashanti kingdom. Stools are an important part of Ghana's culture and are considered as an extension of an individual both in life and in death.

    If it's possible we will attend a traditional Ashanti funeral, to which visitors are welcome. In the Ashanti culture, funerals are actually festive celebrations: the deceased is considered being still present in their family. Relatives and friends gather, socialise and celebrate their memory, often dressed in beautiful red and black togas. The chief arrives surrounded by his court in the shade of large umbrellas as drums give rhythm to the dancers whose intricate moves are highly symbolic. Our Explore Tour Leader will give more information if this opportunity is available.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Swimming pool available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 12 - Visit the King's Palace, central market and the Jubilee Museum

    This morning we explore more of Kumasi including Manhyia Palace and Kejetia, the largest open air market in West Africa. Here some 10,000 traders haggle and barter amongst the hectic array of exotic herbs and spices, colourful pots and utensils and unusual foods, such as giant snails (sold either alive or roasted!). We then drive down to Anomabu on the Atlantic coast.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 13 - Explore Kakum National Park and visit Elmina Castle

    This morning we head inland today to visit Kakum National Park. Here the rainforest is one of the most extensive in Ghana, and for those with a good head for heights, there is a canopy walkway some 40m high (optional). This walkway is unique in Africa and offers a rare opportunity to see the forest at the canopy level. This afternoon we visit Elmina Castle. The castles here were built along the entire Ghana coast by the colonial powers of the 15th century to protect merchants and their vested interests, and to create safe anchorages for their ships from the ferocity of the Atlantic Ocean. The castles were also used for 'storing' slaves before they were shipped abroad and so in effect were dungeons as well. Built on the profits of the then lucrative gold and slave trade, the castles became important symbols of European power in the region. With the eventual abolition of the slave trade emphasis changed to the more accepted forms of commerce - coffee, wood and spices. Here we'll visit Elmina Castle.

    Accommodation:

    Grade: Standard Hotel

    Single room available

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Day 14 - Return to Accra where tour ends

    This morning we have free time on the beach in Anomabu, a last chance for a swim and to enjoy the ocean. We make our way to Accra at lunch time and have a last chance to visit the artisan market.

    Meals Provided: Breakfast

    Tipping

    Explore leader
    Tipping isn't compulsory, and we work hard to ensure that our leaders all receive a fair wage. However, you might want to recognise a leader that's done a great job or really added to your trip by giving them a tip. We're often asked about the recommended amount. It's a tricky one, and down to personal preference, but we'd recommend between £15 to £20 per person per week as a guideline.
    Local crew
    Although entirely voluntary, tipping is a recognised part of life in this region of the world. Some local staff will look to members of the group for personal recognition of particular services provided. In order to make things easier for you, your leader may organise a group's tips kitty for included activities and meals and if this is the case, they will account for it throughout the tour.

    Accordingly, you should allow US$ 35.00 per person for tipping local staff.

You must come prepared for basic accommodation standards where hot water and power shortages can occur, and low water pressure can be an issue. Most properties have wifi, however, it is intermittent. Air conditioning is common but may be interrupted by power shortages. Rooms do not have mosquito nets, so bring this with you should you wish to use one.
