    Day 14 Kumasi

    Drive to Owabi Wildlife Sanctuary, A bird Sanctuary located near Kumasi. It protects the catchment area of one of the dams use for water supply to the Kumasi metropolis. Until the construction of the Barekese Dam in 1971, Owabi was the only source of water to Kumasi. Owabi Wildlife Sanctuary is the smallest of 4 Wildlife Protected areas in Ghana. It is 13km² in size, and lies approximately 23km northwest of Kumasi. It has an inner Sanctuary of about 7km, which surrounds a lake, formed by the damming of the Owabi River in 1928.  A plantation of an exotic species, Cassia siamea, covers about 10% of the area. The rest consist of secondary vegetation and small areas of riverine forest and aquatic vegetation.One hundred and ninety nine species of vascular plants been identified. These include 91 tree, 19 shrub, 40 herb, 14 grass, 1 parasite, 6 ferns, and 29 climber species.The avifauna is relatively rich with indigenous birds and some migrants. 161 birds consisting of 29 families have been recorded, 13 of which are listed in Appendix II of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). The Sanctuary is also the only inland Ramsar Site in Ghana. The scenic appeal of the Sanctuary, the potential for picnicking and bird watching, the chances to observe monkeys in the forest, the potential for boating and recreational fishing give the reserve a distinct touristic value. The Sanctuary again provides an excellent facility for educational tours and ecological studies off-stagging from Kumasi Zoo with its commendable animals collection where informed guided tours are provided by the trained staff. From Kumasi Zoo, one can continue to Owabi to enjoy a guided walk through the Sanctuary, and possibly to Owhim to see the interesting bead industry.

    Day 15 Kumasi

It is located in the Uaddara Barracks in Kumasi, the capital city of the Ashanti Region of Ghana. The Prempeh Museum, Kumasi Cultural Centre, Kumasi Zoo and Kumasi Central market are all within walking distance of the fort.The Kumasi Fort was built in 1820 by the Asantehene (the King of the Asante Kingdom), Osei Tutu Kwamina, to resemble the coastal forts which were built by European merchants. Kumasi Fort had to be rebuilt in 1897, after it was destroyed by British forces in 1874. The fort was built from granite and brown soil that was brought from Cape Coast to Kumasi by porters.In March 1900, during the Asante Rebellion, the fort was encircled, and 29 Britons were trapped inside for several weeks. The leader of this rebellion was the Queen Mother of Ejisu, Ohemaa Yaa Asantewaa. After a brief period of imprisonment in the fort, she was forced into exile in the Seychelles, where she died.From 1952 to 1953, after the Second World War, the Armed Forces of the British Colonial Government took over the fort and converted it into a museum.Exhibits include: military equipment, artefacts and other objects used in the British-Asante war of 1990 and during the Second World War. The collection includes weapons of war, colours, medals, armoured cars, anti-aircraft guns, photographs and portraits. This serves as a valuable historical institution for tracing the evolution and development of the Gold Coast Regiment of the colonial era, to the present-day Ghana Armed Forces.There is a British Military Cemetery just about 200m northwest of the Kumasi Fort and Military Museum, which contains graves of British casualties of the Yaa Asantewaa War.
