Ga Mashie (Old Accra) Tours

Ga Mashie (Old Accra)
Better known by locals as Old Accra, the Ga Mashie district of the city is home base for Ghana’s Ga people, the original settlers of the capital. This relatively small geographic area is rich with national culture, history and heritage, including Ussher Town and James Town. These densely populated fishing villages may be economically deprived, but their iconic structures from the colonial era and kinetic energy make Ga Mashie a destination for travelers. 

The district lies between the Densu River and the Chemmu lagoon, just north of the Atlantic Ocean. Visitors can explore the bustling fishing villages, where men are taught to weave nets and hallow canoes by hand. Or visit with the artisans, carpenters, masons and tailors who while away the day using ancient methods and long-perfected techniques.  An afternoon in Ga Mashie puts travelers in touch with Ghana’s age-old traditions, right next to its thriving new economy.
