If you like slow travel and are happy with basic to moderate comfort, then this is a perfect itinerary for you. It offers the perfect contrast with hectic Western life-styles and, in our opinion, is the best way to experience Africa. In a little quiet village like Atsiekpoe, something interesting is happening every moment and with this trip, you have time to be part of it. Other highlights include walks that let you breathe in the surrounding nature, craftsmen you will meet and the items you will make yourself such batik and beads.

We will tailor this trip to you. Change anything - from excursions to accommodation to places visited.

Mona monkey at Boabeng Fiema monkey sanctuary
In the village of Boabeng in central Ghana, monkeys are part of the community. They are everywhere, jumping, climbing and foraging for food. The local villagers believe that the monkeys are sacred, not to be harmed  and should be respected. In fact plenty of food is made available for the monkeys on a daily basis. This stems from the traditionally held belief that the Mona monkeys and Colobus monkeys that populate the area are actually the offspring of the fetish Daworo. When the fetish Daworo visited Boabeng he was constantly surrounded by monkeys who followed him wherever he went. An oracle was consulted and stated that the monkeys of Boabeng are the children of the fetish. As time moves on, it occurred to some of the citizens of Boabeng that as the monkeys enjoyed protection, the sanctuary should be formalised. So the monkey sanctuary came about. To this day, should a monkey die it is given a sincere burial in the monkey graveyard.
