Stop At: Elmina Castle, Elmina Ghana

St. George Castle, also known as Elmina castle, is located in Central Region of Ghana, about a 3.5 hour drive along the coast from Accra. It is the oldest European structure in sub-Saharan Africa. Construction of Elmina castle was started by the Portuguese in 1482 and was originally completed in 1486. Later colonized by the Dutch in 1637, it was during this time that Elmina attained its highest status.

Upon visiting, you will experience the physical history of the slave trade, the impact of which is still felt beyond the shores of Africa today. Most visitors to Ghana tour Elmina Castle, because of its history as a major trans-Atlantic slave hub. Originally, Elmina Castle was not built for the purpose of holding and trading slaves, but instead as a trading post for gold and other African goods. It is from this trade that the name "Elmina" was derived from the Portuguese name for "Da Costa de el Mina de Ouro" (The Coast of Gold Mines).

My friend and I were working in Accra and found ourselves with a free day. We booked this tour online for the next day. Right from the start the communication was excellent, I received update messages from our brilliant driver and guide, Sam. The tour itself was fantastic, starting off with a canopy walk in the tropical rainforest, then moving on to twi firsts that had been used for the slave trade. That was harrowing but necessary to learn more about the horrific Atlantic slave trade. We then finished off with a tasty and welcome lunch at a beach bar. Sam was a great tour guide and took care of entrance fees and gave us some information about the areas we visited.

Had a great guide. The guide was kind enough to assist my mother who struggled physically to complete the tour. He stayed behind and walked with us to ensure her safety. He was very accommodating and friendly
