Akatekyi Crocodile Pond is located about west of Takoradi, the Western regional capital. The crocodiles are sacred and are part of the cultural embodiment of the people in the area. Visitors may bring a bottle of schnapps for libation. The public is admitted to the pond from Sunday to Saturday with the exception of Wednesdays which are sacred days.
The crocodiles join the humans in a form of entertainment as they come out majestically at the chants and incantations of a local fetish priest. Sometimes, they find live fowls waiting for them as sacred gifts from the priests.
