Miss World 2011, Ivian Sarcos, together with Julia Morley (Chairperson of Miss World Organisation), Amanda Vilanova (2nd Runner-Up, Miss World 2011), Alize Lily Mounter (Miss England 2011) and Stephanie Karikari ( Miss Ghana 2010) visited Kakum National Park and Cape Coast Castle on Sunday, May 20.
The visit to the landmarks of Ghana is part of the delegation’s itinerary while in the African nation.
Kakum National Park is located in the central region of the West African country about 33km north of Cape Coast and about 170km from Accra – Ghana’s capital city. It is a dense tropical rainforest which is home to various and endangered species such as the pygmy elephant, civet cats, primates and wild birds. A main feature of the park is a 40m high canopy walkway where one can excellently view the lush greeneries of the jungle as well as a great view to see the different species.
The Cape Coast Castle, on the other hand, is a historical landmark and list as part of the UNESCO World Heritage list. It was built in 1653 by Swedish traders and became the seat of the colonial government of Great Britain in 1844. Presently, it is a magnificent museum that houses historical artefacts.
