Zoo attractions are not really a thing now in Ghana. It was, but people have shifted their interest to other attractions and fun things. During my childhood, my school always organized a tour to the zoo every term. But now most schools don’t do it again. Maybe it’s because the government doesn’t pay much attention to zoos in the country anymore. But it’s always a fun thing to visit a zoo in Ghana.
If you live in Ghana or plan to visit, consider visiting one of our zoos to learn how endangered kinds of animals are safeguarded. Add to your travel bucket list.

Ghana Travel Restrictions
Ghana is open to most travelers again. I mean travelers from all over the world. However, you do need proof of your COVID-19 vaccination(s) or a negative test result before being allowed entry.
Many hotels, attractions, and private tours are open with new health & safety protocols in place, and you still have to follow certain guidelines. They are all good for our safety.
