Travelling to a country that you don’t know at all can be daunting at the best of times, and unless you are exceptionally daring, you usually spend hours trawling the internet to find out the essential information that you need to know before you go. What visas will you need and what currency should you have in your wallet? What is the local culture like? What wildlife could you see and when should you go to see it (ideally whilst not needing an umbrella)? We’ve put an end to the stress by doing all the research for you and collating it in a beautiful and informative guide. Flick through it on your phone, scroll down on your tablet or print it out and leaf through the pages, scribbling notes in margins. We found it fascinating to write and we know that you’ll find it exciting to read! If you’re not sure what to do when you get there, or are still deliberating about whether to go, we’ve picked out the highlights of Ghana and the not-to-miss experiences to inspire you.
Ghana holds plenty of scope for a variety of adventures. Delve into the thrilling urban centres, where exciting markets throng with people and your senses go into overdrive; take a few days to relax on the superb beaches; or venture into the National Parks to witness the exciting wildlife. For a history lesson of the most harrowing kind, spend time in the coastal forts of Elmina and Cape Coast, where thousands of African slaves were processed before departing overseas, never to return. You can also get involved at the community level, enjoying simple hospitality and learning about local handicrafts and Ghanaian village life.
