Aburi Carving Center

Here craftmen can be seen at work on magnificent carvings and drums which are available for purchase. However, be creative and design your own piece and have them carve it for you. The trip here alone is worth a few pictures, winding your way up mountainous hills overlooking Accra. Look carefully, you'll be passing Rita Marley's house and studio, a sight for any Bob Marley fan!
