Spread Love Itinerary
Day 1- Tuesday, March 4, 2025- Welcome Home
You will arrive in Accra on Tuesday March 4, 2025 by 6 pm.
You will be escorted to the 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.
Day 2 - Wednesday, March 5, 2025- Quad Biking in Aburi Gardens
We're heading up the mountain to a pristine town called Aburi. It's 45 minutes outside of Accra, overlooking city. It's the home of the beautiful Aburi Botanical Gardens and the world renowned carver's village.
We're getting on quad bikes and skirt the beaten path in search of more interesting destinations.
Day 3- Thursday, March 6, 2025- Independence Day
March 6th is Ghana's Independence day, the perfect day to spread love. Our day begins at the Nkrumah Mausoleum paying respect to the O.G. and founding father of Ghana, then on to a few more iconic spots, like the Independence Square, W.E.B. Du Bois Center, Makola Market, and Oxford Street, Osu.
In the afternoon we head over to Alliance Francaise, the site of the Natural Expo, an annual festival featuring all-natural goods and services, vegan eatery, and music played by DJ Kemit. This is a lively event that draws people from all walks of life, allowing you to mix it up with repatriates, expats, and indigenous brothers and sisters.
Day 5- Thurs-eve, March 6, 2025- Spread Love
In the evening will be the turn-up session. No high-heels allowed, strictly dancing shoes for this event. DJ Kemit will be performing at Accra's number 1 Jazz bar, playing his favorite instrument, the turntables, alongside Accra's drum symphony.
This will be an epic musical journey without precedent!
Day 4- Friday, March 7, 2025- Travel day
After a nite of dancing we're going to get a late start. No activities until after lunch when we take off to Cape Coast to revisit the plight of our ancestors.
That evening we will light a bonfire under the stars.
Day 5- Saturday, March 8, 2025- Slave Dungeons & Renaming Ceremony
The coasts of Ghana are literally littered with holding cells left behind by the Portuguese, British , and Dutch. We're going to visit Elmina Dungeon, where many of our ancestors ended up before they 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. And it is paying homage to our ancestors who endured such horrid circumstances.
Once we come out of that bottomless pit, we will emerge born-again. To celebrate our rebirth we're going to go through a renaming ceremony.
We head into Accra that evening.
Day 6- Sunday, March 9, 2025- Free Day
It's a good time to get some R&R or hook up with friends & family in Ghana. Whatever you decide, save some energy for our next adventure...
Day 7- Monday, March 10, 2025- Wli Falls, Volta
Bus departs at 7 AM for the Volta Region. This is a 5h journey.
Upon arrival we will eat lunch, then head straight to Wli Water Falls. To get to this water fall we must walk 45m through a majestic rainforest. The walk is moderately easy, pretty much any age can do it, but it wouldn't be possible for disabled bodies. The sight is what we call awe-inspiring. Those of us who live here never get enough of it. It's an oasis in the forest.
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 8- Tuesday, March 11, 2025- Mount Afadja, Volta
Bus departs at 6 AM to Mount Afadjato. It's necessary to start this day early in order to beat the blazing sun.
Today we're climbing the tallest mountain in West Africa. 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 4. The climb is intense and probably not for everyone, but don't count yourself out simply because you're not the fittest. This is more about heart than it is physical fitness. In the featured picture you can see a 6 year old and a 76 year old at the top of the mountain. If its great it won't be easy, if its easy it won't be great!
That said, if you're not up for the challenge it's the perfect morning to sleep in.
We will get down the mountain in time for an early lunch and then the bus will depart at noon for Accra. We should arrive at our hotel by 6 PM.
Day 9- Wednesday, March 12, 2025- Shopping
Today we're going shopping at some of cheapest spots and some of the swankier gifts shops in Accra. This will be your last opportunity to get souvenirs for yourself and loved ones!
The bus departs the hotel at 10 AM and should return by 4 PM.
Day 10- Thursday, March 13, 2025- Departure
We will provide shuttles to the airport well in advance of departure times.
