Vacations and Sightseeing

Ghana does not have great natural landmarks such as Victoria Falls or Kilimanjaro, but it does have hundreds of kilometres of coastline with beautiful beaches, such as those in Busua & Dixcove. There are ruins of European forts, such as Cape Coast Castle. They offer a poignant reminder of the country's importance as a staging post for African slaves. Accra is the commercial and cultural engine of the country and Kumasi is the traditional home of the Ashanti and is famous for its crafts. In the Volta region in the east with the impressive Akosombo dam, you can still find substantial stretches of forest along the border with Togo. The north offers opportunities for close-up game viewing in vast areas on the border with Burkina Faso.
