Not to be confused with ABURI Botanical Gardens, the University Botanical Gardens is an equally noteworthy place to visit, when travelling in Accra.
It is located halfway between the famed Atomic Junction and Atomic Down. I have only been there not for nature, but for a private reason, so was unable to take in the beauty of the place. Entrance is around 2GHC, which is a budget way of enjoying sights outside Accra.
You might want to check their website to obtain a better insight into what is for offer.
