Kumasi is a city in the south of Ghana. It's the one with the fort, the hat museum, the cultural centre and the Prempeh II Jubilee Museum. That gives you a dash of history and culture, but outside the CBD you'll find the most beautiful vegetation. Blooms and plants everywhere. Why? Well, Kumasi is a 300 mile stretch above the equator and sits in a rain forest region.

The Kumasi central market is one of the city's highlights. Definitely don't miss out on an opportunity to visit it and taste the fresh fruit and vegetables if you have the chance.

A visit to Kumasi will unravel the long and proud history of the city, its war and how it's managed to cling to it's royal city title.
If you're the kind of traveller who enjoys experiencing different cultures and nature, then you're really going to lap up a trip to the "Garden City".

The highlight of my trip had to be Gweru in Zimbabwe, it was my idea of paradise. So much to do there with the animals and the location of it was just beautiful!

The trip was great! A very relaxed ride in a mokoro, followed by camping in the Okavango Delta and watching the animals on the islands was awesome!
