Nima Tours was set up to benefit the community of Nima in the heart of Accra.
We would like you to experience what Nima has to offer & by doing so you are giving back to our community Here are some other ideas for you
Tie & Dye
Spend a few hours and learn how Ghanaians, Malians and other West African citizens in Nima make a living out of tie & dye.
Here you get to see how these people design, colour & stitch clothes with their own hands without modern technology to bring out fantastically printed materials into beautiful african wear which are sold and exported.
They will take you through the processes of their work from start to finish in a unique fashion you don't get to see anywhere else.
As an addition, if you would like to buy some material from them, an excellent tailor is nearby and can help you design and then sew it into an exclusive garment!
Come and have a feel of the wonderful hard-working people from West Africa and hear their stories.
