The weather is often warm and sunny and so daily life is lived outside in Ghana. If you lived in a country this beautiful, you wouldn’t want to spend much time inside either. Although Ghana lacks the major attractions like Victoria Falls, its simple beauty is everywhere. Miles and miles of white sandy beaches attract sunbathers and fisherman alike. Mountains rise up near the Togo border with forests great for hiking, camping, and spotting wildlife. The rainforests in Kakum National Park are particularly alluring with bridges built high in the forest canopy where visitors can walk and watch the birds and other tree-dwelling creatures at eye-level.Historical
Ghana was a country at the heart of the slave trade in the nineteenth century. Ghana’s beautiful coastline is marked by former slave forts that are now open to the public in remembrance of the horrific trafficking of Africans. Cape Coast Castle was constructed for the slave trade and was a place where slaves were kept before shipping them across the Atlantic. Cape Coast Castle is now a museum where visitors can see artifacts from the time and learn about the trade.
Ghana’s National Museum houses an exhibit on the slave trade, but also showcases centuries of history with artifacts like tribal masks and artwork. You can explore the world of fine art with exhibits on musical instruments and pottery or study a history of stone age Ghana. While most of the museum is about Ghana, some areas feature items from other African countries that the museum has acquired over the years.Search for Deals
