Seven Options for a Weekend Holiday in Ghana

Wondering on what to do for a weekend holiday in Ghana? Let me help you with this list of options; feel free to pick from or/and add to them.

Game Drive at Mole National Park

Mole Nat Park Ghana

Escape to Ghana’s largest wildlife refuge, Mole National Park for a safari, and experience the stunning grassland savannah terrain and its riparian ecosystems. Located in northwest Ghana at an elevation of 150m, with sharp escarpment forming its southern boundary, this park’s signature creatures are Elephants, but you’ll also find lions, leopards, buffalos and different species of birds there.

Fun-time at Kokrobite beach

This small town along the Atlantic coast is a popular tourists’ destination because of its nice beach. Kokrobite is close to Accra, but it’s a world away from the capital city’s hustle, and everyone feels happy to go there during the weeks and public holidays to enjoy food, dance and music on the beach.

Canopy Walk at Kakun National Park

Ghana

The thick tropical jungle of Kakum National Park was unknown to many until its long canopy walk was constructed by some Canadians. Well, the canopy walk is the cynosure for most of those who visit the National park. It’s what allows hikers to experience a portion of the jungle usually reserved for climbers and flier. Made of a series of rope-style, precariously hung suspension bridges, the canopy walk brings visitors into a jungle layer that is usually reserved for birds and monkeys. 

Explore Cape Coast

The atrocity of slave trade is reasonable document as lessons for future generation at the Cape Coast Castle on which so much has been written. However the castle only further accentuates why the city is well worth a visit. Beyond the Castle, the city itself provides a perfect picture of serenity, with rich, if sober history, lurking about its ambit. No doubt, this former capital city is a place to walk, watch and wonder.

Experience Spectacular Elmina

Elmina-Castle

Cape Coast and Elmina are like twin cities. Your trip is incomplete if you visit one, without the other. Just like Cape Coast Castle, Elmina is also famous for its slave castle; however, it is also a fishing town with self defined vibe and a taste for colours. Get to the seaside and watch the fishermen set out for the day’s catch, or see them return in their brightly painted boats with their catch. The dockside is where a lot goes on. Get there and feed your eyes.

Play around Bojo Beach

Christmas in Ghana

This is from a friend: “Thatched umbrellas stud the shoreline, looking out over the area’s characteristically crashing waves. Rustic to say the least, Bojo is a delightfully simplistic set up of sand, water and seating. Bojo is well-maintained, clean, and the urban hubbub seems eons away”

Weekend at a Resort

Ghana Resort

This is where you can have everything that defines luxury for you at your beck and call. Slide into the nice pool, sample top-notch cuisine and enjoy some of the best services Ghana has to offer.
