Meet your guide in central Accra and set off on your leisurely paced walking tour. Although the slave trade is long gone, monuments still stand here as chilling reminders of this terrible human trade.

With your knowledgeable guide, explore the former slave prisons of Ussher Fort and James Fort in the Jamestown district. Two of the many European forts built along the Ghanaian coast, these military posts were used to store commodities and to hold West African slaves before they were shipped overseas.

At Ussher Fort, head inside the museum that charts Ghana’s slave trade with poignant artifacts and displays. View the exhibits and learn about the incredible cruelty involved in the enslavement of West Africans, around 4.5 million of who are believed to have been shipped from their homelands during the 18th and early 19th centuries.

Hear heartrending tales from the era as you explore James Fort, a building once used by the British to imprison slaves, often for months, before they were shipped. See the dungeons where they were held and learn about the horror and fear they endured as they awaited an unknown fate.

Afterward, finish your tour at the recently restored Brazil House Museum of Slavery, housed in a building that once sheltered Ghana’s returning Afro-Brazilian slaves or ‘Tabom’ people, whose ancestors were shipped overseas. Explore the small museum that chronicles their displacement and the stories of the 70 slaves who first returned to Ghana in 1836.

Having wandered around the exhibits inside the museum, finish your tour in central Accra.
