Ghana JOURNEYS

Cape Coast, Kumasi and Mole NP

Ghana has a rich past. Literally and figuratively. In the eighteenth century, the trade in gold, ivory, pepper and slaves flourished here. The forts of Cape Coast – then the capital of the 'Gold Coast' – and Elmina are the silent witnesses of that time. Contemporary Ghana is rich in special population groups. In Kumasi, the 'Ashantehene' resides in his golden throne palace, the king of the Ashanti. Also in this former capital is the Kejetia market - the largest in West Africa. Tafi-Atome on the eastern shore is the 'cleanest' village in the country with the added attraction of sacred monkeys who are messengers of the gods. Nearby Hohoe is known for the six caves of the Likpe or stone throwers. Other special population groups are the Dagomba with their drummers who are at the same time historical, the Kobi and Talensi with their castle houses and the Gurunsi with their beautifully painted mud huts. In terms of natural beauty, Ghana is also rich with no fewer than twenty game parks and nature reserves such as Mole and Kakum where, in addition to monkeys and antelopes, also buffalo, elephants, lions and leopards live, or four of the 'big five'!
