Technical Tour

Technical tour started with a visit to Kakum Natural Park where participants were able to make a canopy walk in a rainforest.



 

Next stop was a lunch at the Coconut Grove Hotel in Cape Coast with local culture and food.


 

Perhaps the most impressive was the visit to the Cape Coast Castle.
