About Accra

Accra is the capital of Ghana, Africa, as well as its largest city. Once a small port and a suburb of the historic 19th century Victoriaborg neighborhood, Accra is now a modern city, with skyscrapers and residential blocks, while still retaining the older buildings that mark its history. Travel to Accra, Ghana, an eclectic mix of the old and the new, with our 2015 tours and activities.

Go on an Old and New Accra Experience and explore the divide between the different cultures in the urban communities of the city. Travel to Old Fadama, a slum area that represents the result of heavy migration from rural communities to the urban regions. Here, despite challenging conditions, people manage to survive and even thrive in various ways. Be guided by an English-speaking guide, who will take you on a journey into another way of life. Learn how the locals use the hand-me-downs of the more affluent districts to their advantage. Old appliances and machinery are taken apart, to be sold for scrap metal or used for spare parts for rickety but still-functional machines. Here, life is hard, but the people are hardier.

Explore the artistic side of Accra and watch the craftspeople and artisans of the city go about their work. Join a guide who is familiar with these crafts, and venture into the local industries that form the uniqueness of Accra. Learn how a local shoemaker takes leather produced in the northern areas and transforms it into shoes and other footwear. Watch a baker make crusty bread in a clay oven. See fishmongers demonstrating their wares for passersby. See a coffin maker make the final resting places for the dearly departed. Observe scrap metal be recycled, some of which could have come from the slums. There are plenty of different crafts in Accra, and these are only some that you’ll be able to see as you go on this tour.

Satisfy your gustatory curiosity with a tour of the West African Markets and Cuisine. Hit the streets for food from stalls and carts. Watch stew and vegetables be made right on the spot, fruit juices and shakes be blended and sold before you out in the open. Try local delicacies and learn more about the culture an cuisine of the city simply by immersing yourself in it. After this exploration of the markets, go to the Pink Hostel and meet a chef who will teach you how to prepare some local dishes.
