The slave trade may have been abolished centuries ago, but the evidence of the slave trade still stands in Africa. Join this Accra tour to see the forts and dungeons which once held masses of people, destined for a life on another continent, as well as the Museum of Slavery, which is strangely enough housed in a building built by slaves.
Uncover another side of the city on this Accra tour full of history, hope, and heartbreak. Join your local Accra Urban Adventures guide and explore the former slave forts of Accra - important landmarks that played a crucial role in the slave trade which thrived worldwide centuries ago.
