Kakum Park Shop
ATAG’s shop at the Kakum Park is well-known for its gift and souvenir items for the visitors and tourists who thronged the place to ‘conquer’ the walkway. A collaborative drive between ATAG and the Ghana Heritage Conservation Trust, the shop was meant to provide an alternative source of income for the many craftsmen within the Central region. Thus creating income earning opportunities for the locals, the shop displays items made by these locals. “Easy–to-pick” gift items and very peculiar one of a kind stuff is what you will find in the shop.
Colourful African fabric garments and the “asaasa” cloths are also on display. All items on display are hotstuff…very catchy stuff…so once you buy 1…buy 3 more.
About 30 minutes drive from Cape Coast, the capital of Central Region, Ghana is the Kakum National Park. Its one of the most visited tourist sites in the country; visitors are attracted to the canopy walk way and the surrounding forest.
ATAG craft shop is located next to the reception area of the Park and carries varying craft items such as memorable souvenirs, animal figures made from clay, brass and wood products, T-shirts, bags and crated dresses for both adults and children.
