Explore Kumasi with Uber

October 1, 2018 / Ghana

Want to make the most of your getaway to Kumasi? We’ve put together a guide to great day trips you can take using the Uber app!

History-Buffs: Manhyia Palace Museum

Kumasi is a city with a long and rich history, meaning there’s no end to the stories you can discover hidden amongst its streets. If you’re interested in finding out more about the city’s past and the events of times-gone-by, make sure to pay a visit to the Manhyia Palace Museum. Located in the Manhyia neighbourhood, this palace built back in 1925 reflects the splendour and rich history of the Ashanti Kingdom.

Animal-Lovers: Owabi Wildlife Sanctuary

Birds and pythons, oh my! Located in a rainforest, the Owabi Wildlife Sanctuary is the perfect place to spend an afternoon with the family. Let your guide lead you towards your favourite animals or just wander through the forest and see what you can discover!

Nature-Walkers: KNUST Botanical Garden

Looking for an escape from city life during your getaway? Take a trip to the scenic KNUST Botanical Garden and unwind in the acres of beautiful green space. Take a stroll around the garden, bring along a book and find somewhere to settle down with a picnic.

Selfie-Takers: Okomfo Anokye Sword

You can’t return home from your trip without an Instagram-worthy snap (or two). The Okomfo Anoyke Sword and the legend around it plays a big part in the Ashanti history. It’s a unique experience – and photo opportunity! – to soak up while you’re in the city. Head over there to get your brand-new profile picture.  

Art-Enthusiasts: National Cultural Centre

Get a serious dose of Ghana’s arts and crafts with a trip to the National Cultural Centre. An ode to the work of the best craftsmen, particularly in brassworking and kente cloth weaving, this museum is an absolute must while you’re in Kumasi. It’s a great day out for all the family, so make sure you check out the museum’s calendar to see which exhibitions are on.
