Try the boat ride at sunset around 5:30pm even the 15 mins ride will be enough! I really enjoyed it and the skies were perfect. Just sad part of the lake had a brown foam on it :(

I loved the serenity and the story behind the lake. Intriguingly, are the old tree trumps in the lake. Had a boat ride over the lake with my buddies and horse ride round it. It was worth the long trip from Kumasi.
