A must-visit in Accra! Amazing scene (check the Hillburi resort on the way down) and relaxing atmosphere. Loads of information of the area and the plants, a lovely place to visit with kids!

Lovely gardens overlooking Accra. There are numerous trees including Shea butter. Many royalties and dignitaries have planted trees in section 1 which is located near the front entrance. Take a picture facing the entrance....the trees aligning the path are fabulous.. The result is stunning.

Beware of the ant armies lol. Its chill. Cool place to go to outside of the city. I took a trotro there. I walked up the "mountain'/hill. New Years in Aburi. Probably nice if you go as a family group or to exercise.

We had quite a good time here learning about the many trees around! The guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. You could probably spend a good day here to look around. If you need the toilets they're locked and you'll need tissues.

We visited and tour the Botanical Gardens with our guest from South Africa. They really enjoy learning more about the plants and its medicinal use. Obuoba Tours will always recommend the gardens for our guest.

Excellent venue chosen for a real off-road experience with a Land Rover Discovery. Rainy weather that added real spice to the adventure, sliding up and down the mountains. Ideal place for a relaxing day in mother nature.
