Welcome to Ghana’s most visited attraction, the Kakum National Park. Tucked away in the Assin Attandanso Reserve is the Kakum National Park and Canopy Walkway that offers visitors spectacular scenery and a fascinating wildlife experience along with modern camping facilities. The park’s best-known feature is undoubtedly its 7 suspension bridges which form a 333-meter long canopy walkway, suspended up to 27 meters above the forest floor from trees that are over 300 years old. The canopy walk is only one of Kakum’s many delights. There are a variety of trails and guided walks that allow visitors to experience the solitude of the rainforest. It’s also a premier site for bird watchers, with over 300 species including eight species of global conservation concern. Mammals include forest elephant, leopard, bongo, bushbuck and many primates, but game viewing is difficult. Also, more than 600 butterfly species have been recorded. The forest has wild life which can be seen in the night and professional guides are always available to take you on a guided night tour. The park is child-friendly so don’t forget to take the kids along to the newly added children’s park with a super mini and safe canopy walkway swings and play area. Explore all walkway levels to enjoy spectacular view Go on a guided forest walk and learn about the medicinal uses of forest plants Go on a night hike with a park guide to experience the sights and sounds of the forest during the transition from day to night Experience evening drumming and dancing by a local cultural group Listen to an evening concert by the local Nyamebekyere Kukyekukyeku or Orchestra, which performs with bamboo wind instruments Remember, this is a rain forest and it can rain at any time, go with your rain coat and your trainer. It is best not to carry any heavy thing in your hands since you will be needing your hands to hold the ropes on both sides as you walk along. Carry a small backpack or a waist bag where you may keep your camera or phone on top of the walkway. There is a brief hike before reaching the Bridges. Make sure you wear good shoes. If you make it across the first walkway and change your mind, there is a short cut to exit so give it a try…

Cape Coast Castle (Swedish: Carolusborg) is one of about forty "slave castles", or large commercial forts, built on the Gold Coast of West Africa (now Ghana) by European traders. It was originally a Portuguese "feitoria" or trading post, established in 1555. However in 1653 the Swedish Africa Company constructed a timber fort there. It originally was a centre for the trade in timber and gold. It was later used in the trans-Atlantic slave trade.[1] Other Ghanaian slave castles include Elmina Castle and Fort Christiansborg. They were used to hold slaves before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas, especially the Caribbean. This "gate of no return" was the last stop before crossing the Atlantic Ocean.[2] The large quantity of gold dust found in Ghana was what primarily attracted Europe, and many natives of Cape Coast used this to their advantage. In exchange for gold, mahogany, their own people and other local items, the natives received clothing, blankets, spices, sugar, silk and many other items. The castle at Cape Coast was a market where these transactions took place. At the time enslaved Africans were a valuable commodity in the Americas and elsewhere, and slaves were the main traded in Cape Coast[citation needed]. Due to this, many changes were made to Cape Coast Castle. One of the alterations was the addition of large underground dungeons that could hold as many as a thousand slaves awaiting export. Many European nations flocked to Cape Coast in order to get a foothold in the slave trade. Business was very competitive and this led to conflict. This is the reason why the castle at Cape Coast changed hands many times during the course of its commercial history.

Osu Castle, also known as Fort Christiansborg or simply the Castle, is a castle located in Osu, Accra, Ghana on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean's Gulf of Guinea. The first substantial fort was built by Denmark-Norway in the 1660s, though the castle has changed hands between Denmark-Norway, Portugal, the Akwamu, Britain, and finally post-Independence Ghana, and was rebuilt numerous times. For most of the castle's history, it has been the seat of government in Ghana with some interruptions, the latest when the John Kufuor administration moved the seat of government to Golden Jubilee House after 6 January 2009,[1] which was quickly reversed by the incoming John Atta Mills administration. It also serves as the place where the late president of Ghana John Atta Mills is buried; in a bird sanctuary, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

The Cape Coast Castle Museum is housed in one of the wings of Cape Coast Castle, in the Central Region. Established in 1970, the museum was given a face-lift in 1994 by the GMMB, with funds from the UNDP, USAID, the Smithsonian Institution and Counterpart funding from the Government of Ghana, along with support from other NGOs. The Cape Coast Castle Museum aims to educate its visitors about the advent of Europeans to Africa and their interactions with the local communities and the Central Region in general. Visitors can view maps of slave trade routes and look at examples of the objects which were traded in for slaves – such as glass beads, whisky bottles, and firearms. Representations of the hold of a ship, as well as auction blocks, have been constructed to simulate for guests a tiny part of the experience of the enslaved. The museum also includes exhibits on the pre-colonial history of the Central Region, in addition to displays on its contemporary culture. Visitors can view a video documentary on “Cross Roads of Trade, Cross Roads of People” putting into context the interactions between the Africans at Home and those in the Diaspora.

The garden occupies an area of 64.8 hectares. It was opened in March, 1890 and was founded by Governor William Brandford-Griffith and Dr John Farrell Easmon, a Sierra Leonean medical doctor. [1] Before the garden was established, it was the site of a sanatorium built in 1875 for Gold Coast government officials. During the governorship of William Brandford-Griffith, a Basel missionary and Jamaican Moravian, Alexander Worthy Clerk, supervised clearing of land around the sanatorium to start the Botanic Department.[2] In 1890 William Crowther, a student from the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, was appointed the garden's first curator.[3] The gardens played an important role in encouraging cocoa production in South Ghana, by supplying cheap cocoa seedlings and information about scientific farming methods.[4] After Hevea brasiliensis was sent to Aburi from Kew in 1893, the gardens also encouraged rubber production in

Liberation Day monument is a monument in Accra, Ghana. It stands in honor of several veterans of the Burma campaign conducted during the Second World War by commonwealth forces in which the veterans fought for the British Empire. After returning to Ghana, some of the veterans began a peaceful protest and marched towards Christiansborg Castle, then the seat of the Ghanaian colonial government. The protesters were fired upon, and seven of the veterans were killed. In 1957, the Ghanaian politician and revolutionary leader Kwame Nkrumah led the Gold Coast, now Ghana, to its independence from Britain. Nkrumah became the first prime minister and president of Ghana, and to celebrate his nation’s newfound autonomy, he commissioned the construction of a huge public square. Black Star Square, also known as Independence Square, is located in Accra, Ghana and is now the site for all the major military and civic parades in the Ghanaian capital. It was completed in 1961 to coincide with the state visit of Queen Elizabeth II. From the first parades in honor of the Queen’s visit all the way up to the present day, Black Star Square has hosted all of the country’s major national public gatherings, national festivals, military parades, and concerts. The most important parade held in the square each year on March 6 is the Independence Day parades.

The Shai Hills Resource Reserve is a resource reserve located in Doryumu in the Shai Osudoku District all in the Greater Accra Region. The area was declared Forest Reserve in 1962 with area of 47 square kilometres (4,700 ha; 18 sq mi) which was later extended to 51 square kilometres (5,100 ha; 20 sq mi) in 1973. It was made a Game Production Reserve in 1971. The protected area was home to the Shai people before they were ejected by the British in 1892, remains of Shai peoples works can still be found at the reserve. A mosaic of forest covers the 5 separate hills in the reserve, while grassland and low dry forests are found in intervening canyons. Baboons, green monkeys, antelopes, zebras, mammals, reptiles and over 172 bird species have been identified in the reserve. The best time for wildlife viewing is early in the morning. The morning visit may include sightings of Kob antelope, bushbuck or monkeys, although the monkeys here are not habituated like at Tafi Atome or Boabeng-Fiema. The baboon troop at the front gate can be very amusing but be warned these are dangerous animals and they love to snatch your unattended personal belongings. Visitors can visit the Reserve throughout the year, but travel within the Reserve could be difficult during the rainy season.

The village of Nzulezo (or Nzulezu) is located near the village of Beyin, roughly 90 kilometers west of Takoradi, in the Jomoro District of the Western Region of Ghana. Nzulezo overlooks the Lake Tadane, and is entirely made up of stilts and platforms. In 2000, it was nominated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and it is a major tourist attraction area. Etymology The village’s name “Nzulezo” in Nzema language, means “water surface”. According to local legend, the village was built by a group of people from Oualata, a city of the ancient Ghana Empire and in present-day Mauritania, which came about from following a snail. Construction Nzulezo was built over Lake Tadane, the settlement of Nzulezo consists of stilt-supported structures integrated seamlessly with the water-dominated natural landscape. It is not known why the village has been built over the water, the main activities of its inhabitants is agriculture, while the fishery plays a secondary role. The lake is however perceived by the local population to protect against certain risks (e.g. a fire). World Heritage Status This site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List on January 17, 2000, in the Cultural category. The village was nominated to become a World Heritage Site for its importance in anthropology: in addition to being one of the few ancient settlements on stilts and platforms left in the world, there is a preserved wealth of local traditions connected with the cult of the lake. Lake Tadane occurs on the banks of all religious rites, and Thursday, is a day sacred to the lake, and it is forbidden to use and work on the lake for any activity throughout the day of Thursday. In recent times the village has been opened to tourism, but with certain constraints (visitations are allowed only once a week). The village can be reached only by a canoe; the route, which crosses the rain forest, takes about an hour to 5 km away. In the village there is a church and a school. As the village is extremely isolated, Nzulezo suffers from numerous health problems, including the vast spread of malaria.

The National Theatre was opened in 1992 to spearhead the Theatre movement in Ghana by providing a multi-functional venue for concerts, dance, drama and musical performances, screen plays, exhibitions and special events. In Ghana, theatre as an artistic form has existed for centuries in the traditional dramatic expressions of society,[1]however, the National Theatre Movement (NTM) was conceived around the time of Ghana’s independence in 1957 to help remold the new nation’s cultural identity. The theatre is governed by the National Theatre Law 1991, PNDC Law 259.[2] The building houses the three resident companies of the National Dance Company, the National Symphony Orchestra, and the National Theatre Players.[ The National Dance Company is also known as "The Ghana Dance Ensemble." The company was first established at the Institute of African Studies, University of Ghana as the first of its kind in 1962. It was then directed by Emeritus Prof. J.H. Nketia and was endorsed by Kwame Nkrumah in 1962. The company moved to the National Theatre in 1992 with Emeritus Prof. Mawere Opoku as their artistic director. Since then, the company has had other directors such as David Amoo (2006 – 2013, Mr. Nii-Tete Yartey (2013-2018) and Stephany Ursula Yamoah (2018 to present).[5]

BEACH
Labadi Beach, officially known as the La Pleasure Beach, is a scenic stretch of sand situated in Labadi, a suburb of Accra. It is not to be confused with the La Palm Royal Beach Hotel or the Labadi Beach Hotel, both of which are upscale hotel beaches in the same vicinity. It is the most popular beach in Ghana, with a spacious shoreline lined with sparse coconut trees and plenty of activities on offer. There are dozens of bars littered across the place, where you can enjoy cool beers or try out locally-brewed gin and spirits like Akpeteshi or Shocker. These very potent drinks, consumed in moderation, are the drink of choice for many local beach goers. There are also hookah bars in smoking areas, for those who enjoy tobacco. The food is also a treat although it is mainly street food. Local favourites like charcoal-grilled tilapia, spicy kebabs and jollof rice are sold for very cheap. There are also stalls where you can buy continental dishes like french fries, burgers and salads.
