"Paga, sacred crocodiles" Paga by Pieter11

Paga Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 13 photos

In the very north of Ghana, in the Upper East Region, you'll find the small village of Paga. Paga is one of the most important bordercrossing in the country and it also is situated in a region that is famous for its artistically painted houses.

But the thing Paga is mostly known for are the sacred crocodiles that live here. Crocs that (as far as the story goes) never hurt humans, and that are never hurt by the humans in return. If you ever want to get close to them and even touch them, Paga is the place to be!

    I'm not sure if I would ever get that close to a croc... too used to hearing stories of the unfriendly ones here ;)
