Kakum National Park

Our luck spotting animals ran out when we arrived at Kakum National Park. Alex was determined to spot a monkey and even whispered throughout her walk so as not to scare them off. Here are some pics of our canopy walk:

After the park, we visited a palm nut oil operation on the road. Palm oil is a staple of Ghanaian dishes. A hot and dirty process.

For lunch, we asked our driver to take us to a place where the locals ate. We ended up in a giant tourist trap called the Hans Cottage Botel (boat/hotel, get it?), proud of its tame crocodiles.
