When it comes to the conversation about cultural heritage, historical monument, and the vivid tourists’ touchpoint on ancient colonization, Ghana sits in the centre of it. Almost all the regions in Ghana have tasted an element of the slave trades, hence, the scattering of forts and castles all over the countries, but the coastal regions have more of such due to its proximity to the ocean. Often used as the point of trade of humans to engage in hard labour in Europe or America, during the point slave activities was dominating the entire country and other neighbouring African countries.

Knowing your history lead one to the liberation and sense of awareness of the tribulations our forefathers went through for the emancipation from the slave masters. Kayatours partnered with Koppan Hospitality for a three-day experiential trip from the Capital of Ghana, Accra through to Keta in the Volta Region of Ghana and then Lome, the capital city of Togo. The trip began on June 28th, 2019 from the office premise of Kayatours – located at the Accra Tourist Information Centre, nearer to the Flag Staff House – the presidential palace of Ghana.

State Transport Company provided a state of the art bus which departed Accra in the afternoon – 3 pm, comedian Lekzy and musician Ratty kept tourist in an exciting mood in the bus, coupled with the brief history presented by tourism honcho and ace broadcaster Abeiku Santana throughout the journey till arrival at 6:30 pm.

Tourists then went to check into their various rooms at the eternally pleasurable resort centre right in the heart of Keta – Aborigines Resort, before trooping to the beachfront for the bonfire night party. We were served will locals drinks – Pito (made from fermented millet or sorghum, mostly in the Northen part of Ghana), Palm Wine (made from palm trees), Sobolo (made from rosella leaves) with side attraction like Tiger Nuts prepared by Naak Services. While we were sipping these varieties of drinks, chevon, Pork, Chicken and Beef barbeques were being served, and a whole lot of other delicious local dishes. All these fun moments were garnished with cultural displays by indigenes, female Afrobeat musician, Feli Nuna, who hails from the Volta region joined in to exhibit her dancing skills, together with the other members of the tour group.

A full aerobics at the Aborigines Resort Beachfront the following morning ushered and gave all tourists the needed euphoria ahead of breakfast, and tour of Fort Prinzenstein, built-in 1978 by the Denish for slave trading and defensive mechanism during wars.

Another beautiful experience which most of the tourists onboard the Kayatours and Koppan Hospitality experiential trip will forever remember is the drive in the calm and splendid town of Keta, the town harbours numerous rich history, from ancestors, who demonstrated their spiritual powers like Togbe Tsali et al, the overrun of the town by the sea and the famous Keta sea defence project to reclaim the land back for the people. For any tourist who is looking to get the best beaches and Lagoons for relaxation, the Keta Lagoon provide that atmosphere, naturally blue and transparent, sadly, just a few of the locals from the big cities like Accra, Kumasi, Takoradi and more were spotted, but Kayatours and Koppan Hospitality are looking to change the mindset of tourists by driving a lot to the town annually.

Drive through Keta.

From the drive, we made a stop at a local restaurant in the town to have a taste of dishes the locals consume. Keta can boost of fresh and mouthwatering tilapia, which we enjoyed on the trip. A complete view of the entire town of Keta, its sea, lagoons, plantains, and rivers can be seen at the apex of Keta Cape St Paul Light House built in 1802 by the Dutch. We had a few minutes of rest back at the hotel before departing to Togo.

Crossing the border to Togo was first met with immigration procedures involving checking of national identification cards for about an hour before being allowed into the country. Time was far spent on the journey, we were ushered into the light life of Lomé (Capital city of Togo), first of all, we went shopping at selected malls, had a few drinks at the street pubs and then head straight to Before and After night club, Feli Nuna entertained us with beautiful and energetic performance. The luxuriating night gradually came to an end, we drove back to Aborigines Beach Hotel to spend the night.

Early breakfast in the morning (Sunday, June 30th) to finally bring our two nights and three days in Keta and Lomé to a conclusion, there were rewards on the bus to almost every participant, on our way back to Accra. Don’t miss the next fun trip in August and September 2019, which will take place in Mole National Park and Axim – Abidjan respectively.
