Paga Crocodile Pond

 Paga Crocodile Pond

Paga Crocodile Pond is a sacred pond in Paga in the Upper East Region of Ghana, which is inhabited by West African crocodiles with some up to 90 years old. Due to the friendliness of the reptiles, it has become popular among tourists and the pond is now reliant on tourism to insure the population of crocodiles remain fed and healthy.

The pond is located in Paga in the Upper East Region of Ghana, and is 44 kilometres (27 mi) outside Bolgatanga, the regional capital.

The crocodiles at Paga are very friendly. Visitors can sit, touch and take photographs with the crocodiles. The crocodiles roam freely throughout the ponds, and are brought to the shore when the guides whistle loudly. Tourists can then take photographs while holding the crocodile’s tails, after the guide has fed them a chicken
