This is a very interesting botanical garden. There was an impressive variety of flora and fauna if one includes the other visitors. Well worth the drive from Accra.

Nice and quiet atmosphere. The place however, needs to be revamped to bring some life into it. Tour guides are not proactive in coming to the aid of visitors

Pleasant day trip from Accra in the Aburi Hills. Needs more maintenance but over all a good sampling of tropical flora.

A cool place to visit. Colourful, but we could not really enjoy fully because it was raining (I guess we did not chose the moment well). I went there with my wife to shoot some pics. Nice place to visit. Cool for nature lovers

Gorgeous gardens and a perfect place for a relaxing afternoon. Restaurant available for lunch. Take a walk amidst the beautiful flora and fauna of Ghana. The garden is truly a special contemplative space. A bit of a drive from Accra, but well worth it.

The Botanical Gardens are an interesting experience. At last I now know what a Pepper tree looks like, what the bark cinnamon tree tastes like and why a wrecked helicopter is dumped in a Botanical Garden. The only down side is.....the park employs over 50...More

I used to come to Aburi Gardens for walks, picknics or just meetings with friends years ago and loved it. The grounds were well looked after, there were many plants with clear labels including cocoa trees and orchids. The gardens go back to colonial times...More

I think it was 10 cedis for non residents. Less for residents. Yes the gardens are open on Saturdays. It is very crowded at weekends

Our guide told us it was a gift from the British Queen to Ghana on one of her visits. It was, we were told, the first helicopter in Ghana.
