  • The Paga crocodile ponds (pools) are among the most famous tourist centers in Ghana, and by far the most sacred, peaceful, loving sites in the ancient and modern world. Located in the KassenaNankana West District of the Upper East Region, these friendly reptiles display human warmth, allow themselves to be touched and patted, and receive and give divine love. The mystery of the Paga crocodiles is woven deep into the fabric of the people, and this is one of the few places where the life of crocs, and beings in the animal kingdom is indistinguishable from those of the human kingdom. The sacredness of life has been preserved for millennia and thanks to the wisdom of the ancestors, modern humans can partake fully in the life of these loving creatures. This little piece reports of a visit to the chief crocodile pond and offers information on the crocs and the tourism potential of the ponds. The Paga crocodiles are here to teach us precisely how apex predators can live side by side with humans when the rules of mutual respect, common heritage and ultimate love are observed.
