The original building was destroyed, but a new, larger, and better lighthouse was built in 1921.
Observe how the indigenous Ga people in Accra cook the most well-known staple food, "Ga Kenkey," which is prepared from corn and served with fried fish and a hot sauce called "Shito." With Chef Binta this evening, enjoy a taste of Fulani cuisine. The nomadic cultural experience "Dine on a Mat" begins with a vibrant mat setting. Your taste buds are then stimulated with flavorful bold pairings of local meats, vegetables, ancient grains like Fonio, and indigenous spices after a guided introduction to the history and customs of the Fulani tribe. Then live Fulani percussions and a traditional Attaya tea ceremony are used to calm you down.
