Overview

    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Kumasi and travel in a tro-tro (shared taxi) to the city’s outskirts for your spellbinding voodoo encounter!

    After about a 1-hour ride, arrive at the site of a voodoo shrine where you meet your guide, a voodoo priest. You might buy a shot of schnapps (own expense) to calm your nerves as the priest begins with a fascinating introduction to this ancient religion. For centuries, many Ghanaians have participated in ritualistic ceremonies incorporating music, dance, and spells.

    Listen as the priest recounts the history of voodoo and strange tales about the dances, herbs, plants and objects used in its many spells for peace and protection. Hear how nature is central to these invocations — rivers, trees and rocks hold special powers — and how voodoo priests use holistic medicines to relieve everything from headaches to serious illnesses. Ask as many questions as you like and, if you wish, enjoy a personal consultation with the priest. Don’t be shy: It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

    As a finale, sit down to a colorful voodoo dance ceremony involving masked and costumed dancers. Watch as they attempt to conjure spirits in a deeply religious ritual performed right in front of you.

    Your head will surely be spinning with voodoo teachings and tips for soothing minor ailments when you get in your tro-tro for the journey back to central Kumasi.
