About 70 Ghanaians today [Monday] set off for a 7-day trip that will give them a rare opportunity to experience Ghana amidst amusement on Citi FM’s Heritage Caravan.

The Heritage Caravan, the first of its kind, forms part of the station’s Heritage Month initiative, held annually in Ghana’s birth month, March.


A convoy of buses left Accra this morning [Monday]  to some of the most interesting parts of Ghana which are deeply rooted in history and culture.

The caravan will travel through eight out of Ghana’s ten regions within one week (from the 7th to the 13th March, 2016). It will make a stopover at the Adaklu Mountains in the Volta region, which is arguably the tallest free-standing mountain in Ghana.


Sightseers will also have the unique opportunity to visit Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary. The Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary is Ghana’s most famous example of traditional African conservation. The sanctuary is nestled in between the two villages of Boabeng and Fiema; and is home to over 200 Geoffrey’s Pied Columbus and 500 Campbell’s Mona Monkeys. You will be thrilled to know that funerals are held for monkeys in Boabeng and Fiema.

You may have heard stories about the beautiful Nzulenzu village in the Western Region but never visited the place. The CitiFM Heritage Caravan will also take travellers to Nzulenzu where the whole of the village sits on stilt.

In the Central Region, the well-known Cape Coast castle, which is one of the most famous slave “castles, built in 1653 will be our destination. In the Ashanti region, the team will visit the Manhyia Palace Museum.

To make the voyage even more exciting, there will be a Cultural Night, Dinner Dance and a Beach Party.
