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. Start by meeting a knowledgeable local guide then travel to meet 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 tour, there's plenty of opportunity to ask questions or even receive a private consultation if desired. Finish the tour by being dropped back at a central point in Kumasi, with a head full of new voodoo wisdom and hopefully some tips on how to relieve some common ailments!
