Among the many other places to visit while on tour in Ghana is the Aburi Botanical gardens. The gardens played an important role in encouraging cocoa production in South Ghana, by supplying cheap cocoa seedlings and information about scientific farming methods. Aburi is about 35 miles from Accra and it has the most pictureque view looking in and over the Aburi mountains. The climate there is georgous, not too cold or hot. It is just perfect! No wonder it was used as a retreat for Europeans and other officials that visited the then Gold Coast.
The Boti Falls is in the Easten Region, Manya Krobo, a spectacular site to see. According to legend, the twin distinct falls are a man and woman that have agreed to co-exist independently but on occasion they merge at the falls landing. The locals will tell you the merging indicates 'mating'. It is a wonderful site to see because just after the "mating" appears a beautiful rainbow.
The Volta Lake is one of the largest man-made lakes in the world. The lake is the main source of light energy for Ghana and its neighboring countries, since it carries one of the largest dams in Africa. There are boats by the bank that can take you out to see the scenery around parts of the lake as well as the mighty Akosombo Dam. The Dodi Princess also cruises on the Volta Lake to the Dodi Island where you can interact with the islanders. The cruise distance is approximately 32 miles with on deck live band. The Lake is sandwiched between Ashanti, Brong Ahafo, Northern Region and the Eastern and Volta Region so you may see snippets of the Kwahu mountains as you cruise on the lake.
