You will also be taken to the Casket Shop where you’ll see the types of caskets that are made for Ghanaians. These caskets are quite unique, since each is made according to the profession each person had when they were alive, like an eagle for a chief and a cocoa for a cocoa farmer.

Afterwards, you will return to Cape Coast for dinner and rest.

After an early morning departure, we will take you to the first European structure to ever be built in Sub-Saharan Africa, Elmina Castle. Built in 1482 by the Portuguese for trade, the castle was later turned into a dungeon where slaves were kept. Elmina Castle plays a great role in Ghana’s dark history as it was a major port for the transatlantic slave trade in the 17th century. We will also participate in a memorial ceremony at the beach for those we lost. We will then have lunch then proceed to the Dutch cemetery, a burial ground for those foreigners who died on Ghanaian soil.
