Being a tourist
Day 2 is where the real fun starts! You’ll explore Accra with our local tour guide in air conditioned vans. Here you will see the most popular tourist attractions such as the Independence Square, the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum which is the final resting place of the first president of Ghana, the W.E.B. DuBois Center, the Centre for National Culture, Black Star Square, Gallery 1957 and more! before ending the day watching the sunset on Lagbadi beach and seeing the Ghanaian nightlife.
It will be an early rise, but definitely worth it.
Being a Local
On this day we’ll show all the unique attractions that make this country one of a kind! You’ll visit cultural sites such as the National Museum of Ghana, St James Town, “Mini Brazil” and Makola Market to get a historical context to Ghanaian culture before ending the afternoon with a sweet treat! Did you know; Ghana is the largest importer of Cacao? As one of the largest producers of cocoa in the world, it’s a wonder there aren’t more chocolate companies in Ghana. All that is changing, with new brands springing up and we will invite you to experience a unique chocolate tasting session. We can either leave you in the city or drop you back at the hotel where we will regroup in the evening for an outdoor movie under the stars at Hannawi’s Beach Cinema Bar Grill and watch a movie with the locals on the beach.

Adaomi bridge is a breath-taking walkway bridge in this smaller town but still a nice view. We will spend a day also viewing the city centre and heading to Lake Volta; the largest man made lake in the world! Here you will enjoy a relaxing afternoon boat ride before heading back to Accra.
