Go beyond the festival and get into the heart of Ghana on your visit. We’ve partnered with award-winning travel startup, Tastemakers Africa, to give you the inside scoop on what to see and do while you’re in Accra for the festival. From turning up in the nation’s capital to one day escapes to soak in some history or sand and sun, we’ve got you covered on making you festival journey your best trip ever.
Ghana is the cultural heartbeat of West Africa with rich traditions, amazing food, and beautifully warm people. It’s been called Africa’s “Capital of Cool” and for good reason, a growing creative renaissance largely seen in art and music, its growing influence can be felt around the world. A trip to its capital, Accra, with its historic monuments, bustling markets, pounding musical basslines, and electric vibe is the best way to begin your journey into the country. Add a few more days to your trip to explore the Central Region, home to Cape Coast and Elmina Castles, relics of the transatlantic slave trade, or the Asante region of Kumasi where gold, kente, and a rich royal lineage dominate the culture, and even the majestic Volta region with rich landscapes from the lush lakeside of Africa’s largest manmade lake to the estuary and beaches of Ada, Ghana has something for everyone.
