Traditional Village Experience

Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from £109.26 GBP / Adult
Embark on a unique opportunity to visit a rural, African village. Make your way to the village of Sante, located on the outskirts of Abidjan. Experience the warmth and depth of Ivorian rural culture as you take part in a local festival. You will first pay a courtesy visit to the paramount chief and elders who will take you through the historic background of the village. After your courtesy visit, discover the secret and sacred world of traditional worship as you participate in a fetish ceremony with priests and priestesses dancing and singing to evoke the spirits. A fetish priest is a person who serves as a mediator between the living and spirit worlds. After the ceremony, take a walking tour of the village, interact with the locals, and observe their day-to-day activities.
