Kakum National Park

Kakum National park is located in the coastal environs of the Central Region of Ghana, covers an area of 375 square kilometers. Established in 1931 as a reserve ,it was gazette as a national park only 1992 after an initial survey of avifauna was conducted. The area is covered with tropical rain forest. The uniqueness of the park lies in the fact that it was established at the initiative of the local people and not by the state Department of wild life preservation in Ghana. It is also the only park in Africa with a canopy walkway, which is 350 meters long and connects seven tree tops which provides access to the forest.

The most notable endangered species of fauna in the park are Diana monkey, giant bongo antelope, yellow- backed duiker and African elephant. It is also an important bird Area recognized by the Bird Life International with the birth area fully overlapping the park area. The bird inventory confirmed 266 species in the park, including eight species of global conservation concern. One of these species of concern is the white- breasted guineafowl. Nine species of hornbill and the African grey parrot have been recorded. It is very rich in butterflies as well, and a new species was discovered in 1993. As of 2012, the densest population of forest elephants in Ghana is located in Kakum.

ELMINA CASTLE


 

Elmina Castle was erected by Portuguese in 1482 as Sao Jorge da Mina (St. George of the Mine) Castle , also known simply as (Mina or Feitoria ) in present day Elmina, Ghana(formerly the Gold Coast). It was the first trading post built on the Gulf of Guinea. First established as a trade settlement, then castle later became one of the most important stops on the route of the Atlantic slave trade. The Dutch seized the forte from the Portuguese in 1637, and took over all the Portuguese Gold Coast in 1642. The slave trade continued under the Dutch until 1814, in 1872 the Dutch Gold Coast, including the fort, became a possession of the British Empire. British granted the Gold Coast independence in 1957, and control of the castle was transferred to the nation formed out of the colony , present –day Ghana. Today, Elmina Castle is a popular site, and was a major filming location for Werner Herzog’s 1987 drama film Cobra Verde. The Castle was recognized by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
