“Perfect in dry season”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

We visited as a family in mid Jan, 2013. Stunningly beautiful, natural, cool, what can I say - DON'T MISS IT! The dry season (Dec-Mar) is a wonderful time to visit as the cool moist air feels so refreshing and the path is not muddy. No need to take a guide unless you want to climb to the top. Politely decline the guide after paying the entrance fee and they will point you down the trail. A very easy 45 min walk through a lovely forest is made a bit more challenging as of early 2013 because two of the seven foot bridges are out, with detour path which is slightly challenging. We still did it easy enough with a 3 and 5 year old. Nothing prepares you for the beauty of the fall in the gorge, lush with greenery even in the otherwise parched brown dry season. There are changing stalls back there to get into your swimsuit, though the water is surprisingly chilly. The fall is 17km E of Hohoe, on the Togo Border. If you are driving from Accra, veer to the right around the big bank in the center of Hohoe, then turn right after about a quarter mile, there are signs. Continue 11 km to Likpe Bakwa, turn right at the T, 5km to village of Wli, turn left at signs. Very simple to hire a taxi to the falls if you've arrived by bus or trotro.

“Wli Agumasta waterfall Camping”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

A young gentleman by the name of Francis, walked us to the foot of the waterfall, where there is a great area to camp. He is the descendant of one of the first people to inhabit the area.

We had a great day hiking and night camping at the base of the waterfall, where we swam and took some great pics. Thousands of bats take off and land during the twilight and we were able to cook on an open fire. Also during the day the place comes alive with hundreds of different colour butterflies. Fantastic place! we had an amazing time, highly recommended.
We found him by asking for camping at the Agumasta Wildlife Ecotourism office at the entrance to the park.

“Cold shower in the jungle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you are planning to go to Togo why not take a different route and go via Hohoe?
Not far from the border are the Wli Falls. To get there you have to walk for a little while through the forest. Though it's pretty straight forward take a guide to support the local economy...
You will be very sweaty when you get there. So make sure you have your swimming trunks with you. The closer you get to the fall the icier it gets. Once underneath it's like a snow shower. That cold. That soft.

“Straight Out of Jurassic Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

It's quite a drive to get from Accra to Hohoe and then onto Wli, and afterwards quite a walk if you have little ones (and our youngest is two) but it is all worth it when you get to see these majestic waterfalls. The bats flying around and the roar and buffets of wind from the waterfalls make this quite an experience. Personally, my favorite site in the whole of Ghana.

“AMAZING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We had to travel with a trotro for 7hours to get to hohoe from Accra, but it was worth it and the scenery was beautiful.
The charge to get to the waterfall was 10cedi, (you can get it cheaper if you have a student or volunteer card) and 1cedi for the camera.....(yeah that didn't really make sense). Anyway we then hiked through the forest for about 40-45mins, then we were finally standing infront of the amazing waterfall.
There two waterfalls, the bigger one is a further hike of bout 2hours. We didn't see it cause the rains had caused a mudslide.
Must see if your in the volta region and there are little shops at the entrance of the forest where you can get drinks, snacks and knick knacks.
at the end of the hike our travel guide asked for a 2cedi tip from each of us...
I loved it.
