Lake Bosumtwi

This deep crater lake - said to be an ancient meteorite impact crater - is a popular weekend outing for residents of Kumasi. This is Ghana’s largest natural lake and it is very picturesque. Not far from the hotel, boats depart for trips across the lake.

Photo tip: the best view is from the top of the road before descending to the lake.

Its a good picnic site on a day trip from Kumasi. Be prepared for every old man in the area to offer his services to tell you the “history” of the lake.


Read more about the lake in its Wiki and here for recommended places to stay at the lake.
