Ghana Facts and Country Information...

Ghana is part of West Africa with its borders touching those of Togo, Burkina Faso and Côte d'Ivoire, while the coastal landscapes overlook the Atlantic Ocean. The capital of Ghana is Accra and the official language is English, although local Ghanaian languages are widespread.

Ghana's landscapes are rich in natural beauty with narrow grasslands stretching inland from the coast, dense rainforests offering national parks such as the Kakum, dry savannah and forested hills.

The largest man made lake in the world is the Lake Volta, in which the Black and White Volta Rivers merge into. The coastline boasts magnificent stretches of sandy beaches with palm trees and lagoons.

In the nature parks there are many species to be spotted, including antelope, monkeys, lions, elephants and many birds and butterflies, which are plentiful in the Ghana forests.

Ghana is also rich in history boasting 42 European forts and castles, amongst which are the Cape Coast and Elmina Castles listed as UNESCO Heritage Monuments.

There are many colorful traditional festivals throughout Ghana, where there is a lot of pomp and ceremony as well as the African bazaars and open markets.

The climate is a tropical one, hot and humid in the north and the forests, with two rainy seasons going from March to July and from September to October.

The people from Ghana are called Ghanaians.
