Slave Forts and Castles Tour of Ghana
The 46 Forts and Castles along West Africa are evidence of Europe's (Portuguese, Dutch, Britain, Germany, Danes and Swedes) strong interest in attaining gold, ivory and African slaves from the continent. Ghana has the largest number of these structures; 26 in all and more than half are still standing today. On this tour you will have an opportunity to visit the forts and castles in the Central and Western regions. Cape Coast and Elmina castles along with Fort St. Jago have been officially designated World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. After visiting the UNESCO sites you will continue to the Western Region to visit Fort Metal Cross at Dixcove and Fort Appolonia at Beyin, Fort Orange at Sekondi and Fort Sebastien at Shama. You will learn who built these forts and castles and why. You will also learn how they were used and their relationship with the local people in the area.
