Thanks for clicking this article. Did you know that there are some remarkable places one can visit in Ghana? In this article, I will name some places you are definitely going to be interested in.
Kakum National Park
This is a dense tropical rain forest in Southern Ghana. The forest is home to over 4D species of larger mammals including forest elephants, forest buffalo, Mona-meerkats and civets. The bird of life is fantastic as well with over 250 species living in the forest. The highlight of any visit to Kakum is a stroll on the canopy walkway that is built 30 meters above ground, crosses several bridges and is over 1000 feet in length, which offers an amazing view on the perspective of the wildlife and unique plants of the forest.
Mole National Park
This is Ghana’s largest wildlife park and is located in north western Ghana. Here, you can expect to see buffalos, elephants and many other species. You can decide to go for a walking safari or a traditional game drive. Do make time to visit the Larabanga Mosque near the park because that’s the oldest mosque in Ghana. The best time is during the dry season, from January to March as animals congregate around the water sources.
This one of Ghana’s best beaches and offers the visitor chance to relax, paddle around the Atlantic and enjoy some lobster. There are several hotels along the beach front ranging from luxurious ones with dining facilities, pool and beach lodges. It is located in the Ahanta West District of the Western Region in Ghana.
The main attraction here is seen to be the excellent Academy of African Music and Art (AAMA), foundered by master drummer Mustapha Tettey Addy. This academy attracts drummers and dancers from all over the world. It is a 30km trotro ride away from the capital Accra. It is known for traditional sea fishing, its white-sand beaches and its lovely nightlife.
Cape coast castle
Ghana’s Atlantic Coast is lined with old forts (castles), built by various European Powers during the 17th century. The Cape Coast castle was built for the slave- trade, and is seen as one of the most impressive assets Ghana has. It was originally built by the Dutch in the year 1637, and was later expanded by the Swedes; finally, the British took control and turned it into their colonial headquarters in 1664. It stayed that way for the next 200 years, until the capital was moved to Accra, in 1877.
