Ghana 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, 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 it’s 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, rivers and lakes.


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. Coastal regions bring stunning sunsets and sunrises along its Gulf of Guinea.  Ghana houses an interior marked by waterfalls and rainforests.  The mountains and lagoons around Lake Volta, fishing, wood-carving, crafts, kente-weaving and glass bead-making villages, road-side stores, open vegetable markets, African music and cultural festivals, all provide an endless list of places to see and things to do!  Ghana’s restaurants and personal cooks will tantalize even the most critical tongue.


Last but not least, Africans around the globe and history-enthusiasts alike, 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, as Ghana’s masterful oral historians un-hesitantly un-veil and recount the horror and resilience of Africans forced into the slave trade.


Ghana is identified by three seasons and is warm year-round.  The dry season runs from November to April with mild-moderate rain in May and July.  The rainy season is between September and October.
