Ghana Travel Information


Ghana Flag The Republic of Ghana is a country in West Africa. It shares land borders with Burkina Faso, Côte d'Ivoire, and Togo, and has a coastline on the Gulf of Guinea (part of the Atlantic Ocean). The country is home to Lake Volta, the largest artificial lake in the world, which is formed by the Akosombo Dam which provides electricity not only to Ghana, but also to other nearby countries such as Benin and Togo.

As of 2009, Ghana had an estimated population of 23,837,000. The largest city and capital of the country is Accra which is home to about 1.7 million peoplein the city itself, and a total of 2.9 million in the metropolitan area.

Ghana was the first sub-Saharan African nation to achieve independence, and is richly endowed with natural resources. The country is the 2nd largest producer of cocoa in the world, as already mentioned generates hydroelectric power from the Akosombo Dam, and is also a leading producer of gold, as well as exporting bauxite, diamond, manganese, and timber. Moreover oil has also been found in the country. However, although Ghana now has twice the output of poorer West African countries, economic progress since independence has been relatively slow, and more than a quarter of the population live on less than US $1.25 per day.
