Events

Spouses' Excursions

A comprehensive programme of activities would be assembled for spouses including visits to historical places such as the Castles, Museums, National Parks like, Kakum Nature Park, Aburi Botanical Gardens, waterfalls and a cruise on the Volta Lake.

Arts & Crafts

Ghana is very rich and diverse in traditional arts and crafts. Notable among these are the ancient artistry in fabrics with the colourful and popular Kente cloth now adopted as a focus of identity by many people of African descent the world over. Ancient terracotta work, traditional gold jewellery, Krobo beads, Northern leather and straw products and wood carvings serve as souvenirs sought after by tourists. Colourful traditional festivals full of pomp and pageantry with Chiefs and Queen Mothers riding in lushly gilded palanquins are organised throughout the year by various ethnic groups.
