Ghana travel guide

It is no marvel that Ghana is sometimes referred to as ‘Africa for first timers’. Besides rich culture, historical heritage and vibrant cities, the country boasts welcoming beaches, gorgeous hinterland and diverse wildlife. With trouble-free transport and affable inhabitants, it is a welcoming country – which is why the increased request for Ghana as a travel destination. Derived from the ancient Ghana Empire, the name means “Warrior King”. Read more

A large number of rivers and streams flow throughout Ghana. Added to these are a number of coastal lagoons and human-made lakes. It is a joy to experience the harmonious diversity of the Ghanaian culture, that varies from North to South and East to West. It is one of the few English-speaking countries in West Africa. The green cover of forests, grassland, mangroves and rivers will be keeping your eyes busy.

The environmentally sensitive populace, Ghanaians practice sustainable tourism by not encouraging mass tourism in order to preserve protected areas and the ecosystem. Visit northern Ghana from December to April, the dry season. Be prepared for the hot winds blowing from Sahara Desert. Enjoy the rain, by visiting the region during its cooler rainy season between April and October. Southern Ghana has two wet seasons with the central part of the country getting the longest and heaviest rainfall. It is easier to get around the region during the dry seasons from November to March or July and August.

About 10 airlines including Emirates, British Airways, Lufthansa, connect Ghana and India, although, there are no direct flights between the countries presently. Public transport such as buses and taxis are readily available, but they are generally crowded and not air-conditioned. Travel like a local once in the country in tro tro – minivans carrying 10-20 passengers. The best bet would be to negotiate with the driver of rental cars – rental cars are available only with drivers. On multi-day trips, drivers will find their own accommodation. Accra serves domestic flights to Kumasi, Tamale, Takoradi and Sunyani.

What to see in Ghana:

For the history enthusiasts, Ghana has a treasure trove of historic sites like the forts and castles of European-style architecture – mostly British, Dutch and Portuguese- dotted along the coastline. Exceptional examples can be seen at Cape Coast and Elmina, which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. In the north, the 15th Century Larabanga mosque and 16th-century Nalegiru defence wall are remnants of the prosperous civilisation.

The admirer of nature will cherish the National Parks, Resource Reserves and Wildlife Sanctuaries accessible all year round. Owing to the diverse landscape from the savannah to dense tropical forest and grassland the wildlife is as distinct as it can get. Spend time going on a safari, walking on the elevated rope bridges and chance upon elephants and big cats at Kakum National Park and Mole National Park.

Isn’t it amazing to be able to surf throughout the year? It is possible in Ghana, set out to Busua Beach if you are a beginner, Gomoa Feteh where you can ride a wave for as long as a kilometre, get away from the crowd and head to Achenim where the waves are consistent.

For a cultural experience, make your way through chaotic yet outright fascinating Kejetia Market with a guide who would know his or her way around, explain matters and help bargain. Visit the museums to learn more about the heritage and traditions. Tantalize your taste buds by trying some of the best West African cuisines, while listening to live music.
