TOURISM IN GHANA

"AKWAABA" welcome to Ghana - Africa’s friendliest country. Formerly known as the gold coast Ghana stands out as a preferred tourist destination in West Africa with its rich and glorious history, time-honoured traditions, art and natural scenic beauty. The centuries-old monuments along the shores of Ghana, which today have become World Heritage Sites, attest to Europe’s trading links with Africa and the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. Ghana played a pioneering role in Pan-Africanism, leading other African countries to attain independence from colonial rule. Visitors are fascinated by the cultural experience that links the past to the present in the institution of chieftaincy and rich regalia, the celebration of annual colourful traditional festivals, a rich array and variety of handicrafts and above all the proverbial Ghanaian hospitality. Nature lovers marvel at the richness of the wildlife that includes elephants, monkeys, birds and butterflies, and breathtaking views of varied landscapes and unspoilt sandy beaches. Immerse yourself in our traditions and lifestyles and explore the beauty of the Ghana.

There are numerous tourist attractions in the ten regions of Ghana. We can help you to plan your volunteer tour trip. PHIVOG can also arrange tour trips for tourists who want to explore the beauty of Ghana. For more information please contact us.
