Ghana is in West Africa, located on the Gulf of Guinea, only a few degrees north of the Equator, therefore giving it a warm climate. It borders Côte d'Ivoire to the west, Burkina Faso to the north and Togo to the east. The coastline is mostly a low, sandy shore backed by plains and scrub and intersected by several rivers and streams. Formerly, a tropical rainforest belt extended northward from the coast, but most of the rainforest was felled in the twentieth century, leaving scattered remnants, principally in the southwest, some of which are under protection. North of this belt, the land is covered by low bush, park-like savannah, and grassy plains.
   Ghana is also rich in Gold. Their people have a very rich culture and they have a very stable country with great potential for growth.
  Ghana is a very friendly country, ideal for first time travellers to Africa, the people are generally very helpful and welcoming, which is one of the reasons why tourism in Ghana is growing very quickly.

 ACCRA is the capital and most populous city of Ghana. Over 70% of Ghana's manufacturing capacity is located within this region district. Accra has been Ghana's capital since 1877, and contains public buildings reflecting its transition from a 19th century suburb of Victoriasborg to the modern metropolis it is today.
Among the attractions of Accra are the National Museum, with a display of exhibits that reflect the heritage of Ghana from prehistoric times to modern times, the National Theatre with its distinct modern architecture, Independence Square, the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum, the Accra International Conference Centre, the fishing port at Jamestown and Makola Market.

  CAPE COAST, or Cabo Corso, is the capital of the Central Region of Ghana and is also the capital city of the Fante (Fanti) people, or Mfantsefo. It is situated 165 km west of Accra on the Gulf of Guinea. From the 16th century the city has changed hands between the British, the Portuguese, the Swedish, the Danish and the Dutch.
The town's symbol is a crab and a statue of one lies in the city centre. Fort William, built in 1820, was an active lighthouse from 1835 to the 1970s, while Fort Victoria was built in 1702. Other attractions include the Cape Coast Centre for National Culture, the Oguaa Fetu Afahye harvest festival and, since 1992, the biennial Panafest theatre festival.

  KUMASI is a city in southern central Ghana. It is located near the Lake Bosomtwe, in the Rain Forest Region about 250 km northwest of Accra. It is popularly known as "The Garden City" or "heart beat" of Ghana because of its many beautiful species of flowers and plants.
