Experiences Walking and Trekking Walking in Africa Walking in Ghana

Walking in Ghana

Known as the Kingdom of the Ashanti, Ghana is famous for its glorious past and its esoteric culture and rituals, however its rich, green vegetation and tropical forest also make it a very interesting destination for trekking. Kakum National Park is characterised by verdant rainforest and is home to various species of mammals including forest elephant, buffalo, bongo, primates, and Red-river hog. A 40 metres high canopy bridge provides breathtaking views, allowing visitors to better appreciate some of the over 400 species of colourful butterflies that live in this ecosystem.

In Tafi Atome, situated in the Volta region, it is possible to take a walk accompanied by local trackers in search of the Mona monkeys, once considered sacred and today protected by a project that successfully supports the local communities whilst ensuring the conservation of this species.

The trek to summit Afadjato, the highest mountain in Ghana (885m) is a steep climb through lush vegetation and sacred waterfalls. Wildlife sightings are also possible and from the summit views of Lake Volta, the rolling hills and surrounding villages can be enjoyed as well as views over the neighbouring mountains in Togo.
