The weight of history is ever-present in this dynamic country formerly known as the Gold Coast. From remnants of proud kingdoms past, to the thought-provoking colonial architecture of the infamous trans-Atlantic slave trade, Ghana blends rich historic relics with welcome modern amenities for a visitor’s delight. The preservation of arts and cultures are on display as you wander artisan villages watching kente weavers at work, or try your hand at palm wine tapping. Savour a birds-eye view of the rainforest on the 333-m long canopy walkway at Kakum National Park. Travel by dugout canoe to Nzulezu, a 400 year old village built entirely on stilts on Lake Tadane. Whether an adventure-seeker, a laidback beachgoer, or anything in between, Ghana has something for everyone.
