A beautiful, remaining Ghanain forest - two hours from Accra
Oct 2021
What a beautiful place. We arrived early (07:00) and watched the forest wake up. A huge range of birds - including woodpeckers, beeaters hawks and sunbirds. Also, a stunning range of butterflies, bugs, spiders and insects. Definitely see if you can take a guide - ours was Kuame Brown - and he spotted the smallest of birds hiding behind leaves. Don't forget your binoculars.
Not for the unfit as there is quite a steep hill to climb and it is something like 2 - 3hrs to the waterfalls (we didn't make it as we stopped to see birds all the way up the hill).
This forest needs support as it is being encroached by loggers and miners - if it is destroyed we will never get back this amazing resource.

Well conserved forest
Feb 2013 • Family
Atewa rain forest is pert of an ecosystem known as the upper Guinea Forest. This type of forest ranks amongst world's 34 most important biodiversity hotspots. Atewa is one of two upland evergreen forests in Ghana and forms the south-west boundary of Lake Volta. The range runs roughly north-south, consisting of steep-sided hills with fairly flat summits. Atewa is a beautiful rain forest with a huge variety of plants and retains a large number of birds and other species. We were here to see the birds and were not disappointed. Th only negative was the illigal loggers that we bumped into, who pretended they were picking mangoes. If you are visiting Ghana, make time to come to this beautiful forest.
