On our (long) drive down south to have a vacation at the beach, we made a stop in Kintampo to see the waterfalls. We’ve been to Kintampo Falls a few times so this time we sought out a lesser-known waterfall that a friend tipped us off to.
Located a few miles west of Kintampo, you turn off down a dirt road and pay a guy 20cedis to open a make-shift gate. There is a dirt parking area next to a partially constructed hotel that was abandoned decades ago (it’s a shame because it’s a lovely spot).
We visited during peak rainy season and the waterfall was a raging torrent. I would like to return when the levels are lower because it would have some great swimming spots!
There are upper and lower falls at the site. At the lower falls, a cool picnic area was built in the 1980s by a Filipino friar. It has rock bridges, stone benches and tables, and several levels at different spots. I’m not sure if the abandoned resort building nearby are also related to that catholic missionary.
Here’s a full tour of the site that I made with a 360° video camera.
