Hans Cottage Botel is located in Cape Coast the Central Region of Ghana is a notable tourist destination that spells outstanding rich tradition as well as the proverbial friendly hospitality of the Ghanaian.
This site gives visitors a feel of Paga Crocodile Pond, Nzulezu Village, boat rides, bird watching, and more.
Tourist attractions in Ghana are mostly gifted by nature with very little to boast of in terms of man-made or artificially created tourism sites. One such attraction in Ghana is the Hans Cottage, located in Cape Coast in the Central region of Ghana.
Hans Cottage boasts of several attractions and activities that tourists can partake in including crocodile watch, boat ride on a man-made pond, small rounded buildings constructed on the pond, swimming pool and bird watching.
At Hans Cottage, to see the crocodiles, pieces of bread are thrown into the pond to attract fishes to the surface of the water. The crocodiles who depend on these fishes for their meals hurry to the surface with the hope of catching them. Unlike Paga Crocodile Pond where the reptiles are friendly with humans, the crocodiles at Hans Cottage are not and shy away from humans most of the time. They are however not dangerous and do not attack tourists, but simply prefer to stay in the waters.
Also, another wonderful attraction at Hans Cottage is the exciting boat ride on the lake. Visitors also have the option of taking a ride on the lake in a boat paddled by a tour guide. Whiles on the lake tourists get to see some of the crocodiles at closer view with their heads popping out of the water.
Furthermore, there is also a bird watch at Hans Cottage. Beside the lake, there are very short and small trees which serve as home to different bird species.
This is why Hans Cottage is Botel not Hotel
Hans Cottage Botel and Hans Cottage Hotel are two different facilities. The hotel is seen near the pool while the botel is the Nzulezu-like structures seen in the pond. A botel is a boat or ship serving as a hotel or hostel. In the case of Hans Cottage, the botel isn’t a boat nor ship. There might be a reason why the owners chose to name it botel.
