ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Thanks to its friendly people, improving infrastructure and diverse cultures, Ghana is becoming an increasingly popular destination for tourists.

The country is known for many miles of stunning beaches, interesting remnants of its European colonial past, the lively city of Accra, Lake Volta, and the parks and wildlife of its central and northern reaches.

Arguably the main major attraction in Ghana is the Ashanti Region in the center of the country. It's home to numerous small lakes, waterfalls, national parks, and birds and wildlife sanctuaries. Notable are the Owabi Arboretum and Bomgobiri wildlife sanctuaries.
