Ghana is a beautiful country situated on the coast of West Africa.
Ghanaians are very friendly and hospitable. In political view Ghana is democratic and stable for many years now, the Ghanaians are very proud of that fact. That’s why it is safe to travel through the country. It is wise to purchase a good guide book, like the Bradt Guide (Moon&Star p. 396 in the book). They also gave us an excellent review in their book!
You could travel through Ghana on your own using local transportation. As said, the Ghanaians are very friendly and always prepared to help – but travelling with local transport is very time consuming. Small distances can be very challenging, mainly because of bad roads and connections.

You could also choose to make good use of our experience in the field of Travel&Tours. We can organize a relaxed and unforgettable trip for you.

Kumasi is Ghana’s second city, it is the capital of the Ashanti region. Kumasi is a very busy city with over a million inhabitants. When you visit Kumasi you have to go to the very hectic Kejetia market, the largest market of West Africa. After that you could go to the National cultural centre where the atmosphere is a lot more relaxed.

In Brong Ahafo you can see monkeys in Boabeng Fiema, the Kintampo Falls and Nkoranza. 

Do you want to see elephants and other wildlife? Then you travel to Mole National park in the north of Ghana. In Larabanga, right by the national park, you can visit the oldest mud and stick mosque of Ghana.
