Sunrise over the Rainforest Canopy Walk

Kakum National Rainforest Canopy WalkKakum National Park is the largest tract of tropical rainforest remaining in Ghana and is only a day away from our home in Busua. The rainforest canopy walk is a unique experience you cannot have in many places in the world. We recommend you arrive at the Kakum National Park Guesthouse in the early evening so you can get an early 3am start the next morning. Why so early? You want to up in the canopy when the sun rises. Need we say anymore?

Kakum is located very close to our location in Busua so arranging a weekend excursion once you are in Ghana will not be a problem. We highly recommend you take a Teach on the Beach Scholar to guide you, it will be an amazing experience for them!

Waterfalls of the Volta

Wli Waterfalls in Volta Region, GhanaGhana's Volta basin is sparsely populated, but rich in culture, natural beauty and history. The Volta is home to the Ewe tribe, weavers of the most striking Kente cloth, the Akosombo Dam that powers most of the country, and even neighboring Togo and Benin and last but not least the breathtaking Wli waterfalls. 

There are, in fact, two waterfalls, an upper and a lower. The upper falls are an hours hike through jungle that will exhaust you if you aren't in shape. Even those not in shape that are able to drag themselves up the mountain, the payoff of a secluded waterfall is well worth it. Those able and prepared in advance can continue the hike to the top of the mountain and cross the border to Togo to camp for the night. You will be led up the mountain by a knowledgeable, local guide.

You may arrange travel to the waterfalls with your program director once you are in the ground in Ghana. We will gladly arrange for a guide, typically one of our students. Travel and accommodations to Wli are very affordable.
