In one of my earlier posts I gave you 21,000 reasons why you should visit Ghana. Today I want to give you more than 21,000 reasons why you cannot afford to miss the Cape Coast (Oguaa) Fetu Afahye (festival) that is going to take place in the first week of September 2015.

The Oguaa Fetu Afahye is an annual festival celebrated by the chiefs and people of the Cape Coast traditional area in the Central Region of Ghana. The culmination of this festival is a grand durbar of chiefs on the first Saturday of September. There are a lot of festive activities taking place during the whole week and the city of Cape Coast becomes one buoyant, fun and colourful place to be.

I have had the opportunity to witness and be part of the Fetu Afahye of 2014 which happened to be 50th Anniversary of the celebrations. I share with you some videos and pictures to entice you to make the trip to Ghana this September.

Go on and make that booking now…hope to see you there this year!
