Where to eat and stay
Kakum National Park’s onsite café offers a range of local and international dishes. While the park can be easily visited in a day from Cape Coast and the surrounding area, there is accommodation in the park itself.
Located four kilometres from Cape Coast and 12 kilometres from Kakum is Hans Cottage Botel which provides an array of guest houses, suites, private rooms and dorms. It’s notable principally for the crocodiles that patrol its lake (and occasionally its bar-restaurant), but there’s plenty of passable accommodation on offer, and its location makes it a haven for birdlife. There’s a wide mixture of chalets, double and family rooms available to ‘experience the joy and comfort of a sleep’. There’s also a gift shop, conference facilities, restaurant and bar (main courses GH¢6-18).
Double from GH¢35; chalets GH¢75-200.
