Itinerary

Step into the mystical, magical world of voodoo on this fascinating Kumasi Urban Adventure. The voodoo religion has existed in West Africa for centuries, built on a backbone of song, dance, and ritual.
Dive right in with a visit to a voodoo priest who will teach you about the traditional religious heritage of voodoo in Ghana. As a guest of the priest, you will learn about the significance of certain dances as well as the usage of herbs and roots in the treatment of disease and illness.
The forces of nature are considered integral to the voodoo faith, so trees, rocks, plants and even rivers, are seen as important elements of voodoo. Herbal tonics, creams, and tinctures are often prescribed by the priest after diagnosis and are reported relieve anything from fevers to migraines, burns and even more serious illnesses. As an interactive cultural tour in Kumasi, there's plenty of opportunity to ask questions or even receive a private consultation if you'd like. Don't be shy!
With a head full of new voodoo wisdom and hopefully some new tips on how to relieve some common ailments, your Kumasi voodoo experience will come to a close.
