Year Of Return: Mini Tour Session I (Dec 19-24th) DEPOSIT
The Year of Return 2019 is both an opportunity for Diasporan Africans retunring home to reflect on the past and also anticipate for the future. The month of December will be a climax time for those Diasporan Africans visiting Ghana. The Mini Tours (Session I & II) are about introducing those visiting Ghana, many for the first time, an opportunity to see a few of the most significant and beautiful sites that Ghana has to offer in a span of 4-5 days. We specicifially created the tours in this way so that visitors can explore the natural beauty of Ghana and also enjoy some of the festivities & Activities that Accra & Cape Coast have to offer such as the AfroChella & AfroNation concerts/festivals. The tour will begin in Accra where guests will tour the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park & Arts Center before heading to Cape Coast. In Cape Coast, participants wil tour the infamous El Mina & Cape Coast slave castles. The birthplace of Transatlantic Slave Trade. Cape Coast is one of the most culturally significant spots in Africa. This former European colonial capital was once the largest slave-trading centre in West Africa. Coveted by its European colonizers for its abundance of gold, Cape Coast is also known for being the last stop for Africans who were taken into slavery by European colonizers to the Americas. After leaving Cape Coast participants will tour the Kintamo the Brono Ahafo Region (Forest Zone & Center of Ghana). There participants will tour Kintampo Watefalls, Fuller Falls & the Fiema Monkey Santuary. Kintampo waterfalls is a beautiful cascading waterfalls in Ghana. The Kintampo Waterfalls has a more festive environment with lots of locals on picnics and there is plenty of shade where visiting individuals and groups can sit and have fun. There are lots of trees, mostly dominated by Mahogany, some of which grow beyond 40 meters! Fuller Falls gently flows from the east over a series of cascades foaming rapids of the Oyoko river (tributary of the Black Volta) at Yabraso. The water falls provides tourists with a wonderful, peaceful, and a refreshing, cold pool surrounded with seats made of concrete and rocks where one can relax quietly and have a fair view of the falls. The beautiful, spacious entrance of the scenery is a perfect place to be for a revealing and a memorable day. The Fiema Monkey Sanctuary has no fences, the monkeys are there because they want to be. There are two types the Black and White (Geoffroy's) Colobus, and smaller Campbell's Mona. In this small area, the monkeys are protected and treated as sacred, so they have become used to being fed and looked after by village people and interact with them. Participants on this tour will certainly have a nice slice of the metropolitian and natural sides of Ghana. In addition, daily (optional) Yoga & Meditation will surely help participants to integrate the entire experience on deeper levels. You are most welcome to join us. Register Today!
