    Kakum National Park

    by Alpha_Ghana Updated May 6, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In this park you are supposed to see a lot of animals and local flowers and trees. However, the main attraction is the canopy.
    You are on a small rope bridge, walking on top of the high trees, sometimes 100 m from the ground.
    A big experience!
    Don't worry it is very solid, but if you feel vertigo, don't try.
    During the week, sometimes too many people and it can take you one hour to cross because of the afraid people, If possible for you visit during the week.

    f you are not there before dawn, don't visit the park, there is nothing to see.
    At dawn, if you are lucky, you can see some animals.

    Elmina

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Elmina is one of the best conserved castles of the Gold Coast.
    Built by the Portugueses, it went to the British and then the Dutch.
    It is the main and best witness of the starting point of the slavery. Thousands of people were sold to Europeans traders and collected at El Mina.
    The castle was also a point of departure for the commerce between the Ashanti's and Europe.
    The castle is in very good condition.
    Pay a visit to see the conditions of men and women who had no chance. A large part of them were already dead before being in the vessel. They were chained during days under the heat.
