Culture Awaits!

From walking tours, to museums, to ancient artifacts... you’re obsessed with each location’s present connection with the past. You’re enthralled by the temples of Kyoto, the sepulchers of Spain, and the cradle of civilization. You’re well read and familiar with arts & culture in a way that allows you anticipate the destinations that’ll be standout experiences for you in each country. But you’re also open to learn more from the locals than you do from any tourist guidebook, even if you are making sure to pack the appropriate Fodor’s in your carry-on.  


YOUR PERFECT VACATION: GHANA

Accra, Ghana’s capital, is home to various museums, beaches, & the world famous Makola Market.

Get out early to fit each stop into your day, maybe stopping at the market (said to be dominated by women vendors) after a museum trip or two, & before a visit to the beach; a perfect opportunity to engage in local culture & to pick up some necessities for a beach picnic. 

Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park honors President Nkrumah, Ghana’s first democratically elected president, who helped lead the country to independence. Nkrumah’s mausoleum is located within the park & is open to visitors,, along with a museum charting his life.


See stunning treetop views of the Kakum National Park when you take the canopy walkway over the area of the park, a forest that is home to endangered species like forest elephants & the Diana monkey, & where beautiful African grey parrots & hornbills fly freely. 

Learn about the history of the continent, & perhaps of your own people, at history museums like the Cape Coast Castle Museum & the W.E.B Du Bois Memorial Centre for Pan-African Culture. Ghana’s Ashanti people have a complicated & fascinated history. Learn about it at the culturally focused Manhyia Palace Museum in Kumasi, the capital of the Ashanti region in southern Ghana.

Open-air Kejetia Market, stalls sell everything from glass beads to Ashanti sandals. Ghana has various culture centers, in places like Tamale, Kumasi, & Accra, which feature experiences in the form of workshops, traditional dance performances, & even vendor set ups.


Your go to style: Natural & Protected

You’ve made sure to pack plenty of products, especially those that condition & moisturize, so that you can spruce up those natural styles you’ve become familiar with over time. Maybe you’ll go with a wash & go, high buns, or a ‘pineapple’ puffs. No matter what you choose you can easily change your mind the next day or even later in the evening. 

To keep your natural texture looking great, plan to wash & go on day one, stretch in a pineapple puff at the top of the head for a couple days, then switch to a high pony, eventually ending with a bun. & be sure to pack your scarf or satin pillowcase!
