#PTS-Accra : In suburbs of #Accra like #Teshie , eye-catching coffins are made. These #coffins are often designed to represent the life of the individual who has died ... for example, a taxi driver may be buried in coffin designed as a car; a pilot in a plane.

The way in which you are buried is extremely important in Ghana since #funerals are often celebrated like #weddings ... they are an occasion for both mourning, dancing and family get together.

#PTS-Ghana : #Wechiau #Hippo #Sanctuary in the north-western corner of the #Upper-West Region of Ghana.

It consists of a 40km stretch down the Black #Volta #River which forms Ghana’s western boundary with @BurkinaFaso .

Visitors can take a river #safari to spot the 22 #hippopotami (morning and evening cruises are best) or a haven for birdwatchers or just relax while your boatman gently paddles the boat along the Black Volta river.

Best time to see hippos: Dry Season from #November to #June
