If youre a lover of plants & greenery, this is the tour for you. After a ride out from our meeting point at the Lindador Restaurant & Rest Stop, we roll into the rainforest village of Juaso, where cocoa farming is a common livelihood. If its in season, youll have a chance to taste raw cocoa, and see how the locals dry and process it for sale. Well also pass several artisanal mining pits, where miners hope to get lucky and take home some of Ashantis world-famous gold.
From here, its a bit of a climb on the main road back towards the Bunso Arboretum, where theres nothing but peace and tranquility to be found. Those with a taste for adventure will be excited to learn that Ghanas 2nd forest canopy walkway is at the Bunso Arboretum; while those content to keep their feet on terra firma can spend their time bird watching, butterfly spotting, or simply strolling through the verdant, shady grounds.
