Osu Walking Tour

Osu Beach | Osu Walking Tour | Accra, Ghana | Green Bug AdventuresOn this walking tour you will get to see some sides of Osu that many people don’t even know exist.  The side of Osu that will take you back in time before the glitz and glamor of Oxford street.  One surrounded by colonial architecture, the time of Kings, and Queens and traditional spirituality.  You will see how people live smack dab in the middle of these two differing paradigms of modern African life still firmly connected to the past and the future.  You will learn about how people make a living, what people eat, and how people are still firmly attached to the sea and the fish that it brings to feed the people.  All of this is the shadow of Christianburg Castle that was the seat of Post Colonial Ghanaian government and in important outpost of the Gold Coast Colony, and the seat of the Danish Guinea colony before that.
