Pereko Family Tour Itinerary

Day 1- Sat., December 23, 2023- Arrival

I will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel to check in and freshen up.  

After a meal we will head out to tour Accra, visiting the most iconic spots:

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

Day 2 - Sun, December 24, 2023- Slave Dungeons Tour

We depart from our hotel at 7 am for a 4h journey to Cape Coasts where we will visit the slave dungeons.

Once we arrive in Cape Coast we will visit Mable's Table for lunch, then  on to Elimina, to the Dungeons.

It's an unpleasant excursion into the wickedness befell our ancestors, but necessary if you want to understand the imbalances that persists as a result of this history.

We aim to depart Cape Coast by 3 pm, arriving in Accra 7 pm.

Day 3- Mon, December 25, 2023- Aburi Mountains

After breakfast, at roughly 10 am, we will head up the mountain to a pristine town called Aburi.  It's 45m outside of Accra, overlooking the capital. First we will go to the beautiful Aburi Botanical Gardens and then we'll jump on 4 wheel quads to explore the interior.  On our way back down the mountain we will stop at the world renowned carver's village. 

 

Day 4- Tues, December 26, 2023- Wli Waterfalls

We'll depart at 7 AM for the Volta Region. This is a 5h journey.

Upon arrival we will eat lunch, then head straight to Wli Waterfalls. To get to this waterfall we must walk 45m through a majestic rainforest. The walk is moderately easy, but it is in nature, thus all natural surroundings.

The waterfalls is awe-inspiring.  Those of us who live here never get enough of it.  It's an oasis in the center of an oasis. (If you can imagine that.)

That evening we will stay at Big Foot Safari, a modest accommodation in keeping with the fact that we will be deep in a village. Nonetheless the rooms are very accommodating, each with their own bathroom.

Day 5- Wed, December 27, 2023- Mount Afadja

Today we're climbing Mount Afadja, Ghana's tallest mountain.  The base of the mountain is just 30 minutes from where we're staying, but we need to get an early start to beat the rising sun.  It's a much easier climb when the sun isn't at its apex.

 It's an intense 1 hour hike straight up the mountain.  On a scale of 1-5, with 5 being the most difficult, it is a 3.5. The climb is intense, meant to test your will and a total thrill. We like to say:  ...if it's great it won't be easy, if it's easy it won't be great!

We will get down the mountain in time for an early lunch and then we head back to Accra.  We should arrive at our hotel by 6 PM.

Day 5- Thurs, December 28, 2023- AfroFuture

AfroFuture is a celebration of Africa’s diverse culture and the vibrant work of African creatives and entrepreneurs.

The festival is designed to elevate and highlight the thrilling and thriving millennial talent in Africa by introducing an interactive event that teaches, explains and explores various cultures through a pioneering approach. AfroFuture attendees will experience art and creative activations from the continent, celebrate African music, and taste premium and cultured cuisine.  

 

Day 6- Fri, December 29, 2023

AfroFuture is actually a two-day event and you will have access to the second day, but you may not want to spend the entire day in the same space.  Today is a good time to get in some shopping. I will take you to all the best spots to shop.

Friday evening we'll check out the  Jazz Bar & Grill for a vibe with a more distinguished crowd.

Day 7- Sat, December 30, 2023- Beach Day

Depending on your departure time, we're going to get in a day of chillaxing at one of our more secluded beach resorts.  It's a totally laid back environment with a great selection of food and miles of coast to not-get-lost on. It should be just  what you need to prepare for your journey back. 

From the beach we will go straight to the airport.  (A room can be rented so everyone can shower and change.)
