Some Facts

The Republic of Ghana is a country in West Africa. It borders Cote d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast) to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east, and the Gulf of Guinea, and a part of the Atlantic Ocean, to the south.

Ghana is a paradise of culture, history, landscape, and opportunity. A perfect gateway to Africa, Ghanaians boast a special pride for Ghana’s peaceful country with its mix and weave of tradition, religion, education, village, and city life. Ghana has over 70 ethnic groups/languages and is a photographer’s paradise with its vast oceans, rainforests, and developing cities.

After years of suffering under British colonial rule, Ghana, formerly known as the Gold Coast, became the first African State to achieve independence in 1957. As an ex-colony, English is the official language, however, the major languages spoken are Twi, Fante, Ga, Hausa, Dagbani, Ewe, and Nzema.

Ghana’s cultural and historical icons and superb hospitality make it an ideal location for your group. There is an endless list of things to do and see in Ghana from the mountains and lagoons near Lake Volta, Elmina’s fishing communities, wood-carvers, kente-weavers, glass bead-makers, and open vegetable markets to mansion-lined streets and rural villages. When it comes to food, Ghanaian cuisine will satisfy even the most critical tongue.

Last but not least, people from around the world find great interest in the slave dungeons of Elmina, the Last Bath at Asin-Mansu, and Ghana’s annual Emancipation Day Ceremonies in Cape Coast. Ghana’s masterful oral historians deliver an important story that counterbalances the horror and oppression of a painful past with resilience and resistance toward a better day.
