Revenue at Kakum National Park drops by 30%

There is a 30% drop in revenue at the Kakum National Park due to bad roads, managers of the facility have confirmed.

Coordinator of the Ghana Heritage Conservation Trust, managers of the Kakum National Park, Jonathan Nyaba says people no longer visit the tourist site which averagely received 180,000 visitors annually.

Kakum National Park located in the Central region is a world heritage site, which has for years remained one of Ghana’s most attractive tourist sites, drawing visitors from all over the world.

With a 350 metres canopy walkway, the park also serves as an excellent home for many plants and animal species.

But management of the facility says the 13km stretch of road from Cape Coast to the Park has become a death trap putting off a lot of tourists.

“Is a worry not only to management but a worry to the whole country”, he told Joy News’ Richard Kwadwo Nyarko when he visited the facility.

“This particular facility is not for those of us who are managing it, it is a national facility and government and other stakeholders should be worried about the situation,” the coordinator stated.

Jonathan complained that management’s numerous appeals to government to reconstruct the road have not yielded any results.
