One of central Ghana’s most famous attractions is Kintampo Falls (formerly known as Sanders Falls during the colonial era). Located on the Pumpum River and less than a mile off the main highway, the waterfalls are the highest in Ghana with it’s largest and final stage dropping over 80 feet. One of the coolest features is that at the first stage of falls, the water disappears underground only to reappear farther down at the second stage of falls.
We stopped at Falls on our way south to pick up my in-laws in Accra. The place was full of young Ghanaian youth enjoying some relief from the heat in the cool water.
On our return trip with Ken & Jo, we stopped by again on a Monday morning. The previous night had brought a massive storm so the water was raging and brown from all the sediment being washed into the river.
