About Aburi

Aburi is a town north east of Accra, the capital city of Ghana. It is famous for the Aburi Botanical Gardens. Aburi is home to Aburi Presbyterian Technical Secondary School, which is linked to The Sixth Form College, Farnborough in Hampshire, England. Aburi has a relatively small population, it is the sixty-eighth most populous in Ghana, in terms of population, with a population of 18,399 people, and is headed by the Aburihene (chief of Aburi). The journey from Accra to Aburi is about 45 mins (will be less when the dual carriage road from Tetteh Quarshie Circle to Adenta Barrier is completed by the end of 2012.) Due to the altitude of Aburi, the climate is a lot cooler than neighbouring Accra.

Aburi is host to one of the finest wood markets not only in Ghana but in Africa. It has been rumoured that goods manufactured at the Aburi markets have found their way to South Africa to be sold on to tourists
