Here’s what I’d like to have done before I leave Ghana:
[x] Mole National Park – See some Animals! – Done. Read about it here
[ ] Paga/Burkina Faso Border – Sit on a crocodile!
[ ] Moto Trip – Destination not important really, but maybe the Gambaga Escarpment
[ ] Bolgatanga – Upper East Region capital
[ ] Bui National Park/Cote d’Ivoire Border – Hippos!
[ ] Take ferry along Lake Volta – The largest “man-made” lake in the world, apparently it’s possible to take a boat from the North to the South over the course of a few days.
[ ] Mt. Afadjato/Togo Border – The highest peak in Ghana at 885m
[ ] Kumasi – The capital of the Ashanti Kingdom and home to some other EWBers
[ X ] Lake Bosomtwi – Meteorite impact crater lake near Kumasi – Done! Read about it here.
[ ] Kakum National Park – Do the nature canopy walk
[ ] Nzulezo – Village built on sticks on a lake
[ ] Elmina/Cape Coast – Visit the slave holding fortresses along the coast
[ ] Busua/Takoradi – Surfing!
[ ] Wli Falls – Highest water fall in West Africa (maybe)
[ ] Out of country trip to Burkina/Mali/Togo/C d’I/the Sahara – Travel outside the country at least once
Wish you could all come along with me, but hopefully reading about it is at least something. Any other suggestions or must-see things that I’ve missed please let me know. I’ll update this post as I check things off.
