Kumasi Zoo, Kumasi

1.0
Located between the city's bus terminal and the old market, Kumasi Zoo provides shelter for primates, reptiles, ungulates, and birds. Established in 1951, the self-supporting zoo houses about 60 different species of animals and focuses on conserving the surrounding wildlife as well as preventing illegal poaching. Explore the verdant, park-like grounds intersected by a vital watercourse, and keep an eye out for the thousands of bats living in the zoo's trees. Due to the poor economic situation, officials struggle to maintain the cages and facilities, but the rise in visitors is helping to overcome such difficulties.
