1. From Accra: Cape Coast Slave Dungeons Day Trip with Lunch
Visit Cape Coast, the capital of the Central Region in Southern Ghana and known for its role in the transatlantic slave trade. Begin with a visit to the Kakum National Park, home to endangered mammals. The park is rich in butterflies and birds, and also has a suspended canopy walkway 30 meters above the ground. Take a transfer in an air-conditioned 4x4 cross country. Stay refreshed en route with water and snacks and chat to your experienced, friendly, and helpful guide. Visit Elmina Castle, which was erected by the Portuguese in 1482. It was the first trading post built on the Gulf of Guinea and is the oldest European building in existence south of the Sahara. Then, depart for Cape Castle. Cape Coast Castle is one of about forty "slaves castles," or large commercial forts, built on the Gold Coast of West Africa by European traders. It was originally a Portuguese feitoria or trading post, established in 1555. At the end of your tour, return to Accra.
