Beautiful Places To Visit In Ghana
West Africa is a lovely place, and there is the country of Ghana by the Gulf of Guinea. It is renowned for its beautiful setting next to the ocean, as well as the colorful people who live in it. In Ghana, there are different places to visit to be one with its distinct culture that is bound to bring you closer to this country and the wonderful experiences that it holds for you. Ghana is a magical place filled with history, culture, scenery, wildlife, and some of the world’s most friendly people.
Take a Visit to the ASHANTI KINGDOM
The “Land of the Golden Stool” region of Ashanti is Ghana’s cultural heartbeat and rich in history and tradition. Kumasi is the second-largest city in Ghana and it is the Ashanti region’s regional capital. The city’s highlights include the largest outdoor market in West Africa, Kejetia Market, the National Cultural Centre, Okomfo Anokye Sword, and Manhiya Palace, now a museum, dating back to 1925. Numerous craft villages, historical sites and shrines, bird and butterfly sanctuaries, and Lake Bosumtwi, the largest meteorite impact lake in Africa, are located in the surrounding area.
Walkthrough the Kakum National Park
In southern Ghana is a thick tropical rainforest. More than 40 species of mammals, including forest elephants, forest buffalo, meerkats, and civets, are present in the forest. The birdlife is also amazing, reporting more than 250 different species. However, a walk on the Canopy Walkway is the highlight of any visit to Kakum. Suspending from 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground, this 350 meter (1.150 feet) walkway has you cross several bridges and offers a unique view of flora and fauna of the park. Join a guided tour of the many medicinal properties of the plants. Then, if you want to spend the night, pitch your tent at the base campsite.
Tour the Cape coast Castle
The Atlantic coast of Ghana is lined with forts and castles of the seventeenth century and one of the largest in the Cape Coast Castle. Built for the Swedish Africa Company in 1653, this building was initially used for the timber and gold industries as a trading post. Earlier, Dutch and British extended the footprint of the castle and acted as an essential holding station for the Americas-bound slaves. This place is now a museum filled with information on the history of Ghana, the slave trade, and local culture. The tour guide takes you through the dungeons and the “door of no return” once passed by the slaves of the castle.
Safari Park
Mole National Park, located in northwest Ghana, is the largest wildlife park in the country. Look forward to seeing buffalo, rare roan antelope, elephants, warthogs, hyenas, and leopards if you’re lucky. Recently, lions were also reintroduced to the park. For more than 250 species of avian species, birders can also keep an eye out. Go for a traditional game drive or walking safari with an armed guide. During the dry season (January through March), when animals gather around the water sources, the best time to spot wildlife. In addition, there is a hotel near the headquarters of the park.
Take a stop at Ghana’s Oldest Mosque
Ghana’s oldest mosque lies just outside Mole, and one of its most treasured spiritual sites in Ghana. The Larabanga Mosque is one of the country’s eight mosques built from packed earth and horizontal timbers, with towers and buttresses. In the year 2002, after falling into a state of disrepair, this mosque was included in the World Monuments Watch, allowing conservation efforts to repair rotting wood and replace broken cement with mud-based plaster. The pilgrimage site is still operating as a center of worship today, used by the Muslim population of Ghana. For information on how to visit, you need to contact a tour guide who works at Mole’s local orphanage. In the mosque, non-Muslims are not allowed.

Shop at the Accra’s local market
Accra’s vibrant capital, a sprawling city, is home to more than two million people in Ghana. It is an eclectic blend of contemporary architecture, ramshackle townships, colonial castles, and lively markets, and one of the safest capital cities in Africa. High points include the Ghana National Museum and the Makola Market — a central hub selling everything from fresh produce to local arts and crafts. The museum is home to beautiful displays of Ghanaian culture and history, including the Ashanti Kingdom’s legacies and the slave trade. There are also several scenic beaches in Accra, including Labadi Beach, Bojo Beach, and cocoa beach.
View Fort St. Jago
Throughout the lagoon from St. George’s Castle lies Fort St. Jago offering excellent views of the castle and the town of Elmina. The first European building on this hill was a chapel dedicated to St. Jago. The hill was also used by the Dutch as a gun-position for bombing and overtaking from the Portuguese Elmina Castle (now St. George’s). Decades later, two landward bastions, two seaward bastions, and buildings housing 69 soldiers surrounded by a courtyard were built as a permanent fort. Currently, you can see the fort’s modifications of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, which show its use as a jail, hospital, and house of rest.
