The Cape Coast Tour

The history of slave trade, the presence of forts, castles and natural attractions has made Cape Coast a must visit destination for people from the diaspora. While in Cape Coast, guests would visit the Cape Coast Castle, the Elmina Castle and the second largest national park in Ghana, the Kakum National Park. This tour to Cape Coast is a great blend of preserved history and conserved natural environment which cannot be overlooked by guests who appreciate both.

Kakum National Park

There would be a visit to the Kakum National Park, the second largest national park in Ghana. It is the home for various animals, reptiles and birds that are dominantly nocturnal; active and usually seen at night. There is a 15 minute walk/hike to the canopy walkway, the main attraction of the visit. It was built by 2 Canadians and 6 Ghanaians in 1994, about 40-50 metres high with a distance of about 350 metres. The walkway gives tourists an aerial view of the forest and guest safety is assured as three of the Ghanaians who helped to build the walkway are still with the park and carry out frequent maintenance. This tour is recommended for those who would want to conquer their fear of heights.

Elmina Castle

The Elmina Castle was the first trading post built on the Gulf of Guinea by the Portuguese in 1482. It is the oldest European building in existence below the Sahara. From being a trade settlement, it became one of the most important stops on the route of the Atlantic slave trade. As recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage site, the castle is now a historical destination that connects tourists to their heritage and educates them of the history of slavery.

Cape Coast Castle

Guests would visit one of the largest castles built by the Europeans in 1652 initially as a trade lodge and later to keep slaves. This was where slaves were kept before being taken overseas through the door of no return. The door of no return is now referred to as the door of return to signify the return of the descendants from the diaspora. The castle has served various purposes and is currently designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where the history of slavery is kept authentic and passed on.
