If you ask what is so special about Ghana, the answer is everything. It is not an exaggeration or some words to market Ghana tourism. But a truth that has to be experienced first hand to be believed. Today, Ghana is seen as a true reflection of entire African continent. Everything in Ghana, the nature, the people, the climate, the culture; all are so unlike the outside world. Ghana is situated in the western part of African continent and is bordered by Cte d'Ivoire, also known as Ivory Coast in the west; Burkina Faso in north; Togo in east and Gulf of Guinea in south. Ghana is the closest country to the center of the world and you can face some really hot weather. Ghana was earlier a part of tropical rain forest belt, and has many streams and rivers cutting across it.
Ghana is a surprisingly beautiful country for tourism. It was not considered as a major tourist destination few years back, but as the small number of tourists stumbled upon some really wonderful attractions, it gained prominence.There are some of the best wildlife reserves in the country which are known for their strict preservation laws, because of which one can still see many rare and endangered species in plenty here. Mole National Park and Kakum National Park are probably the best of them all.
Ghana also has been impressively successful in preserving its unique culture. There are more than 60 indigenous tribes still residing in Ghana, each having their separate beliefs and rituals and learning about them in itself is an experience.
Accra is the capital and also the largest city in Ghana. It is city stuffed with places to see, each better than the earlier one. Do not miss out on attractions like The National Museum, Christianborg Castle, Independence Square and Labadi Beach. It is best to hire an SUV to move around in the city. Accra is also quite safe to explore by foot. Other important cities of Ghana are Bolgatanga, Cape Coast and Kumasi.
