Visit the unique, urban communities of modern Accra See how the industrious local people make a living Learn about the heritage and culture of people living in Old Fadama Witness how old machinery and appliances are put to use
Ready for an enlightening walking tour through Old Fadama? Let's go! This Accra walking tour will take you right to the heart of a unique community that manages to survive in challenging conditions. As masses of people migrate from rural to urban areas, African cities like Accra reach bursting point and people are forced to live in slum-like areas. For this Accra city tour, you'll meet up with your friendly local guide and head off to the Old Fadama area of Accra. Here, you’ll be able to witness another way of life, with the people who have migrated from the north of the country, in search of a better life. Take the time to learn how the local people go about their trade, using disused machinery, appliances, and equipment to their benefit. From old refrigerators to computers, printers, microwaves, and industrial machinery, the local community dismantle the appliances, locate the valuable parts and one way or another, find use for them. Whether selling valuable elements or using parts for other appliances, the people here are very industrious at making a living. Throughout the tour, take the time to ask questions and interact with this special community, who despite extreme hardship, still manage to survive with a sense of pride and humility.
