The Aburi Botanic Gardens is one of the most fascinating places in Ghana. This 64- hectare elevation of up to 460 meters above sea level offers a breathtaking view of the Accra coastal plain. To know the dignitaries who have visited Ghana you just have to visit the gardens as each of these dignitaries planted a tree there while on a visit.

This garden was opened in March, 1890 to serve as sanatorium for
government official based on the design from Royal Botanical Garden, KEW in the UK. Its serene environment makes it great place for photography and filmmaking.
