Aburi Botanical Gardens

A 45 minute drive from Accra, it is one of the most beautiful, peaceful and fascinating places in Ghana.

Opened in March, 1890 and covering 64.8 hectares, it overlooks Accra from an elevation of 370 to 460 metres above sea level. Visiting the gardens is both an educational and aesthetic experience. 

Beautiful palm lined lanes and a wide variety of traditional, medicinal plants, including a silk cotton tree, the sole survivor of the original forest that once covered the Aburi hills.
