The Green Ranch

There’s no better way to see the countryside of Ghana than on horseback from the Green Ranch. This place specializes in horseback tours by certified expedition guides. The friendly staff provides delicious vegetarian dishes and the ranch offers the chance to stay on-site in one of three comfortable, handcrafted rooms. Horseback tours are available from 1 hour to a 10-hour full tour of the nearby lake.

Lake Bosomtwe

The Green Ranch is on the shores of Lake Bosomtwe, the only natural lake in Ghana. It is situated within an ancient impact crater about 6.5 miles in diameter. Estimates have placed the age of the crater at 1.07 million years old.  Local Ashanti people consider Lake Bosomtwe to be sacred. Should your clients opt for the 10-hour horseback tour, they will be guided around this lake and the surrounding rainforest.
