The water was freezing but that didn't stop my friends and I from swimming and having a great time at the falls, and for 10 cedis each, there's a canoe to take you under the falls and further down the river. We did a hike to the umbrella rock and got a sick view of the surrounding area. We also got to see the 3 headed palm tree and the fertility rock which is said to bless women who sit on it with twins and triplets.

This place was an absolutely beautiful experience. I am a bit shocked at some of these reviews calling it dirty and unsafe. I am an American woman in my 30's and I never once felt unsafe or saw trash around the area.

I took a group of kids to Boti falls upon the suggestion of their sponsors who wanted to take a trip to Ghana in 2020. When we got there, We counted the kids and let them in to wait for us as my accountant and I calculated total cost with my SAMSUNG A50 with the guy in charge and two other guys in police uniform.

Right there as we stood talking, someone picked my phone from my pocket. When I raised the alarm the very same people who were with me insisted I go check it out with my kids. They leave me astounded. I look for management. it seems to be only the CEO.

Then comes the CEO, who throws his hands in the air wondering how he was going to deal with it. we suggested he starts to question those who were in our company. He starts searching them. One of them, resists the search, runs to the guest house for whatever reason, comes back and walks out of the premises. He comes later after about 10 minutes with a bottle wrapped in a black polythene bag, which he suggests was Schnapps to curse us for suggesting he was a thief. (We did not. we only suggested the CEO starts with those who were with us)

Fast forward to the evening, About thirty minutes after our bus had leaves the premises. One of the workers calls us on the phone, requesting my email address and password to be used by specialized people from MTN who had been called in by the CEO to track the phone. I called the CEO to confirm, he repeated in the affirmative and I gave it to him(the CEO). I also logged into my colleague's phone with my email to grant permission for her email address to track my phone's location on google maps.

i didn't see anything until the next day. when I checked my email's recent activities, I realized that someone had logged on with my very phone and disabled the location tracking.

I cannot say that the CEO was in cahoots with the thief who picked my phone. I really don't think so. What I can say though is that whoever the CEO gave the password to, also had my phone. He is not willing to give them up. So be careful with your valuables.It will take me 2 months of my salary to replace the phone which is a work phone and not a personal property.

For as long the management of the falls looks on as pickpockets hover around, guard yourself if you want to visit there. The falls are breathtaking but you are on your own. Send me a mail if you need more evidence or corroboration.

We visited here today and the trip was great. However in entry , we discovered some discrimination against foreigners. They were charged more than locals at a cost almost three times the local price. I was shocked and ask the cashier why. I got an answer that was quite astonishing. He said we pay more because we are foreigners. And if you dont speak the local language like our friends who were from Ghana but spoke another dialect, were also considered foreigners. GHANA passport and all. That's it. There's no debate. If you're a foreigner, you pay more. I tried to call his manager who was not available and mobile reception was non existent. No snacks or food to buy and no facilities for disabled persons. I believe that whoever owns that facility is advocating discrimination against foreigners.

We took a combination of trotro/taxi to the falls. It's a bit of a drive but not too bad. You are required to hire a guide to umbrella rock which we did for about 25 cedis each. The walk is all uphill but only 45ish minutes. The view from the top is beautiful! We then hiked back down and visited the waterfall and jumped in to cool off! It was a really fun day trip and a nice way to get out of Accra!

We visited mid week and there were no more than 10 others there. The road to the falls is quite difficult to find from Korfordia, needed to ask in town. Takes 2 hours from Accra, a scenic journey however via Aburi. Falls are very pleasant. Walk to the umbrella Rock is demanding, steep in places sometimes needing your hands but can do it in sandals. The experience is spoilt by the continuous amount of litter slewn along the path, depressing, why can't it be picked up and kept clean? Unfortunately, rather typical, great potential but poorly managed. Sorry to sound judgemental but it is a review.

Headed up here after a visit to the Aburi botanical gardens. Interesting drive up, through towns and villages, with some lovely countryside. Roads are bumpy once you get off the main roads.

You arrive into a kind of picnic area, laid out for families to get together under round shelters. There are some washrooms but I didn't dare... A couple of hawkers - fruit, water and some souvenirs but otherwise very low-key and lots of rubbish lying around. You pay a guide to take you down the 200-odd steps to the base of the waterfalls, down through tropical jungle.

The falls were a bit disappointing (I've been to Iguazu...) but it's nice enough, tranquil and lush, with a muddy pool at the base - don't even think of swimming. It's probably much nicer after heavy rainfall, when the volume of water coming over the falls would be more impressive.

Aburi + Boti makes a good day trip out of Accra, but it's a lot of driving and don't expect anything too jaw-dropping. It was worth it, though, in an under-stated kind of way.

If you have a day to spend out of Accra head up the mountains stopping at Aburi Botanical Gardens before heading two hours drive up to the Boti Waterfalls, near Koforidua in the Eastern Region. After there has been decent rainfall the two heads of water make a very spectacular sight, though signs prohibit swimming in the pool. To reach the falls from the car park are 200 steps, for which there is a handrail and it will be very hot and humid as you descend through the tropical jungle.
As well as the Falls, are the nearby Umbrella Rock, Three-Headed Palm and the Akaa Falls, to which you walk under a sheer cliff face where frequent rock falls add to the trepidation!
At the car park are very basic food and toilet facilities though there are attempts to improve these (as of October 2012) and to pump tourist money back into the local community.

I was privileged to take some few friends on tour to Boti Falls in the Eastern Region. Unfortunately it was in the dry season so the falls was just drips. We however had the chance to see the umbrella rock and the three headed palm three.

I haven't seen two waterfalls falling from same mountain. One is a male fall and other one is female. To go there one has to go downwards after descending 250 steps.

I have enjoyed a lot. Beautiful scene.
