Beaches and game reserves
A true experience through a country full of surprises. The landscape of Ghana is very varied, from elongated beaches with palm trees, wooded hills, game reserves and beautiful rivers to rainforest with forest giants. You will see the most fascinating animals, from butterflies in the brightest colors blue and orange, Mona monkeys (sacred animals), elephants, baboons, antelopes and crocodiles. Mole National Park,where you stay for 2 days, is home to more than 93 species of mammals.
But the most striking feature is the hospitality of the population, who still live very traditional inland. One of the villages you visit is Atsiekpoe,built entirely from termite clay and hardly visited by tourists. On your way to Kumasi, pass Larabanga,with an impressive 14th-century mosque. In Kakum National Park you have a unique opportunity to admire the forest from above, here hangs high among the trees the longest and tallest suspension bridge in the world. A fantastic and exciting experience!
