Heritage Tour Itinerary

Day 1- Friday Nov 1, 2024- Welcome Home

You will arrive in Accra on Friday, November 1, 2024 by 6 pm.  

You will be escorted to Kempinski Hotel, Ghana's #1 hotel, to check in and freshen up.  Breakfast, lunch or diner will be available, depending on the time of your arrival.

Since this is the first day and people will be coming in at varying times we will mostly unwind and chill by the pool while being serenaded by DJ Serius.

That evening we will all go to Zen Garden for diner.

Day 2 - Saturday, Nov 2, 2024- Accra City Tour

Today we tour the capital of Ghana, the world renowned Accra and its most iconic spots:

  • Nkrumah Mausoleum
  • Arts Center 
  • Independence Square
  • W.E.B. Du Bois Center
  • Makola Market
  • Oxford Street, Osu

Saturday Evening, Nov 2, 2024- Jazz Bar

233 Jazz Bar and Grill is Ghana's premier Jazz spot, famed for excellent live performances and its cool atmosphere. It generally draws a mature, distinguished audience.  This will be the perfect place to mix it up with your counterparts in Ghana.

  

Day 3- Sunday, Nov 3, 2024- Slave Dungeons and Naming Ceremony

The bus departs at 8:00 am to Cape Coast. This will be a 3h journey.  Upon arrival we will go to Mable's Table to have lunch, then on to the Slave Dungeons in Elmina, the last holding place for many of our ancestors who were exported to the Americas. 

For this occasion we request that you wear white on white.  It's a purification process, the undoing of injustices imposed on us.  It is the reclaiming of our destiny.

Once we come from the dungeon we will attend a naming ceremony where we will receive our Ghanaian name, a major step in reconnecting with our ancestral home.

That evening will stay in Cape Coast.

Day 4- Monday, Nov 4, 2024- Kakum Park- Canopy Walk

As long as you're not afraid of heights this will be an awe-inspiring walk, literally over the rain-forest, as we will scale the tallest trees.

Afterwards we have lunch and head to Kumasi.

Day 5- Tuesday, Nov 5, 2024 Heritage Tour

Today we're traveling to the Ashanti Region, home of Ghana's greatest King.  We will visit his palace and visit several other highlights:

  • Manhyia Palace Museum
  • Prempeh II Museum
  • Kejetia Market
  • Kumasi Craft Village
  • Okomfo Anokye Sword Site
  • Asante Traditional Buildings

Afterwards we head back to Accra.

Day 6- Wednesday, Nov 6, 2024- Safari Eco Park

Safari Valley Eco Park is Ghana's newest attraction. Located deep within the mountains of Aburi, 90 minutes outside the city, is a wide open paradise  with majestic wildlife.

On our way back we will stop at the Carver's Market where you can get the best hand carved artifacts in West Africa.

 

Day 7- Thursday, Nov 7, 2024- Sankofa Beach Resort

Sankofa Beach Resort is a secluded beach resort 45m outside of the city, with excellent views, calm waters, and great food!  It's the perfect place to whine down after an intense few days touring.  You can kick back and enjoy the atmosphere or you can work it out on the playing fields or in the water. Either way, you will enjoy overlooking the Atlantic ocean that now separates you from Africa.

Day 8- Friday, Nov 8, 2024- Free Day

For those that would like to get in some last minute shopping, the bus will take you to several shopping destinations.  For those that wish to do their own thing, today is the day.

Day 9- Saturday, Nov 9, 2024- Departure Day

Departure flight times may vary, thus we will arrange shuttles at the necessary intervals to get everyone to the airport on time.

Note: Check out time from the hotel is 11 am, but if you want to extend that time simply prepare for a standard late-fee from the hotel.
