Information for Travelers
Ghana is a West African state on the Gulf of Guinea.
The country is known for its diverse fauna, ancient forts and deserted beaches, such as in Busua.
The vast Kakum National Park stretches north of the Cape Coast, and a treetop path cuts through the rainforest canopy.
Ghana is proof that amazing things come in small packages.
Considered one of Africa's true success stories, this country is enjoying stable democracy and incredible development.
With Ghana, you get beautiful countryside, sunny beaches, rich culture, lively cities, welcoming locals, tons of wildlife and easy access to all parts of the country.
If you've never been to Africa, Ghana is known as 'Africa for beginners', which makes it a perfect destination for those who want to get their feet wet.
The coastal towns of Elmina and Cape Coast feature posubans (native shrines), colonial buildings and ancient castles that have been converted into museums and resemble the slave trade.
Cape Coast is a former European colonial capital and one of the most significant cultural spots in all of Africa.
Originally called Cabo Corso by the Portuguese, the city was once the largest slave trade center in West Africa.
There is a big difference between northern and southern Ghana - including different religions, geography and culture.
But you will still feel that the country is a harmonious unit.
