Some people like the indoors while others love the outdoors. Accra has a wonderful variety of activities, but if you’re looking for something off the beaten path, here are a few ideas!
Oxford Street in Osu
Osu is one of Accra’s upmarket and buzzing areas, and Oxford Street lies at the heart of it. You can spend hours browsing the street stalls, or do some bar-hopping among its trendy hotspots. There are plenty of restaurants offering a great variety of fare, all of which is top notch. End the evening with some dancing or simply watch the people having a great time.
If you want the quintessential Ghanaian market experience, visiting the Makola Market is a must. You can literally find anything here – from fresh produce and countless food stalls to indigenous clothing, jewellery, kitchenware, textiles, shoes, medicines and of course a multitudes of knick-knacks that is unique to Ghana.
Kane Kwei Carpentry Workshop
Looking for something that’s way out of the ordinary? You’ve just found it. Fantasy coffin-making emerged in Accra in the 1950s and has since become an iconic Ghanaian art form. Kane Kwei has been part of this art movement from the start and is still a pioneer in this very different art form – the coffins often relate to certain occupations, e.g. vegetables for farmers, tuna for fisherman and even beer bottles for pretty much anyone who enjoyed a tipple or two!
Kakum National Park
A great place to visit for a day trip from Accra, you’ll be spellbound by the beautiful views from the canopy walkways – a whole new way to appreciate this beautiful spot!
Cape Cast is the former capital of Ghana and takes you back in history. Popular pastimes include wandering through the crescent-shaped harbour area and the old city centre.
This colourful town comes to life when the fishermen go out to sea in the morning and return at dusk, as the whole town shows up to wish them luck and welcome them back. The brightly coloured boats and vibrant atmosphere is quite the experience.
Mole National Park
Ghana’s largest wildlife refuge is home to a vast grassland savannah full of streams and rivers. The native elephants are beautiful creatures and known as Mole’s unofficial mascot. There are also lions, leopard, buffalo and over 3 000 bird species.
Whether you like the city buzz or prefer nature’s tranquillity, Accra and surrounds will keep you busy!
