I came to Ghana in 2006 as a volunteer and intended to stay in Accra for 3 months while working for a local charity. The experience was so good that i just couldn't leave. I'm still here, enjoying this beautiful country that is so rich in culture.

Ghana is a great destination for a mostly cultural African experience, although there are some fine spots for wildlife, too.

Ghana again...just cannot get enough of the place. I traveled to the Volta region this time, including the Ewe tribal lands as well as many other places.
Must put pictures on here one day...

Accra is a vibrant city with an excellent nightlife. Restaurants and clubs of all types offer something for everyone. Here are some of my favorites.
Mole National Park is one of the few places in Ghana where you are certain to see large game. It's also a relaxing place to spend a few days, and the nearby town of Larabanga is a fascinating example of north African culture.

Kumasi, the traditional capital of the Asante people, is one of the most vibrant cities in West Africa, and is chock full of fascinating people, sights, and sounds. It's also the best place to buy traditional Asante handicrafts such as kente, adinkra, etc.

Hohoe, a city of about 30,000, in Ghana's Ewe-speaking Volta Region is about 100km north of the regional capital, Ho. Villages that have developed ecotourism ventures that allow visitors to explore the unique landscapes, cultures, and wildlife of the region surround it.
