Accra Cultural Walking Tour: Arts, Crafts and Industry
Explore the creative and artistic side of Ghana’s busy capital city on this 3-hour walking tour of Accra. Watch local fishermen hauling in their catch, see bakers hard at work producing fresh loaves and learn how Accra’s craftspeople salvage scrap metal and turn it into precious jewelry.
Start your tour in Accra’s historical Ga-Mashie district, and follow your guide to a local shoemaker. Learn first-hand how the shoemaker takes leather produced in the north of the country and uses it to make shoes that are popular across Ghana.
Travel onward to a local factory to discover how Accra’s scrap metal is saved from the landfill dump to be recycled in creative and artistic ways. Waste metal is a by-product of Accra’s growth into an industrial city, and dealing with it is a big challenge for the community.
