The District capital of the Kassena Nankana West district, Paga, which also host the famous crocodile pond in the country could be said to be among the most visited places in the country by tourists.
A visit to the site was evidently clear that both Ghanaians and foreigners who ply the Ghana-Burkina Faso border make a stop over to visit the crocodile pond site.
The human friendly crocodiles make life at the place lively and interesting as they run to receive visitors when they are called by the pond attendant.
Most people found at the pond site were traders and other travellers who were either traveling to or from the neighbouring Burkina Faso, and had a stop over to visit the famous pond. Petty traders in the area took advantage of the visitors to sell their produce as most are into food preparation.
Security personnel stationed in this district are so vigilant to cramp down the increasing number of smuggled goods into the country through unapproved route, since Paga serves as the border town between Ghana and Burkina Faso in the north.
