En route, enjoy this three and a half ride with a narration explaining the important landmarks and towns on the road to the Kakum Park. On this narration learn all you can regarding the history, culture and social way of life of the local people.

Upon arrival at the Kakum Park, take a 15minutes walk to the Canopy way platform. Leisurely walk across all the seven bridges which is one of a kind in Africa. Lavish in a breathtaking view of the park in all of its expanse as far as the eyes can comprehend. After this great accomplishment of conquering the famous canopy walkways you will set off for the historic town of Elmina.

Locally called Edina, Elmina is the earliest contact that the European had with the Gold Coast. The Ft. St. Georges Castle often referred to as the Elmina Castle is the evidence of this claim as it stands as the oldest European building of importance in the entire Sub-Sahara Africa. Upon their arrival in 1471, the Portuguese entered into an agreement with Nana Kwamina Ansah who was the king of Elmina at the time to secure the site of the castle. It was put up eleven years later and ever since that time have had several occupants from the Portuguese to the English. Discover on a guided tour why it remains as the largest slave castle in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

There will be time for lunch at your request and on you. After the tour you will be transferred back to your hotel in Accra to end the day.
