Since gaining independence from Britain in 1957, Ghana has fast become known for its peacefulness, political stability and perhaps Africa's friendliest people. Ghana offers an abundance of traveller hotspots, including the rainforests of Cape Coast, the almighty Lake Volta and the elephant watering-holes of Mole National Park. Ghanaians also share a love for sport that surpasses most other nations.
Ghana is a rich and beautiful country, packed with culture, history and authentic African tradition. Like many people who visit Ghana, you will soon fall in love with the laidback attitude towards life and the variety of fantastic restaurants, 'highlife' bars and African music. However, most of all, you will fall in love with the warmth and charm of the locals.
