Check out the Cape Coast Castle or experience the highest canopy walk in West Africa at Kakum National Park.

Not far away is another sight, Lake Bosumtwi, a crater lake and spiritual landmark for the Ashanti.

Ghana means “Warrior King,” and the country’s tribal origins can be witnessed even in the bustling streets of Accra. Beyond Accra, Kumasi offers a number of important historical sights including Manhiva Palace, the Asantehene’s Palace, and Okmfo Anokye Sword, but there is more to this country than its fascinating heritage. Visit local villages to learn about traditional life, or take a wildlife safari to see wildebeest, hippos, and elephants.
