Reasons To Add Ghana To Your Bucket List Of Countries To Visit

Flying in to Kotoka International Airport, Accra, Ghana  

 

Ghana is quickly becoming one of the most popular destinations for visitors to West Africa. Here are some of the reasons why.

 

SAFE, STABLE AND DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY

Okay, this one is a no-brainer. Wherever we travel, the country has to be safe and stable!

 

RICH HISTORY AND HERITAGE WITH DIRECT TIES TO PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DESCENT WHEREVER THEY ARE IN THE WORLD

With the popularity of DNA tests and tracing of ancestors, many People of African Descent are identifying areas of Africa as the land of their ancestors. The area of current day Ghana is one of those places. Thousands feel an ancestral pull to the land. The Central Region of Ghana holds a particular place of reverence to African-Americans due to the presence of UNESCO World Heritage sites: Cape Coast and Elmina Slave Castles and Dungeons through whose Doors of No Return, millions of enslaved Africans were taken during the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade era.

 

SPECTACULAR NATURAL BEAUTY

A little smaller than the State of Oregon, Ghana is one beautiful country!  From stunning pristine beaches and swaying coconut trees, to lush verdant rainforests, cascading waterfalls, lakes, rivers, mountains and hills, Ghana has it all.

 

DIVERSITY OF PEOPLE AND CULTURE

Ghana, home to over 28 million people, is comprised of a variety of ethnic groups, all living in harmony, and each adding their unique cultural traditions to the splendid tapestry of the Ghanaian people and country.

 

EASE OF TRAVEL

The Ghanaian government makes it easy to travel to the country.  All you need is a single or multiple-entry visa, and they are easy to obtain. It’s also easy to extend your visit in Ghana by renewing your visa while still in the country.

Because of its reputation and strategic location in West Africa, Ghana is accessible by most international airlines

 

THE WORLD KNOWN FRIENDLINESS AND HOSPITALITY OF GHANAIANS

This one is my favorites and it is true. The people of Ghana are among the world’s friendliest and most welcoming.” Akwaaba!” is a word you hear everywhere, starting right from arrival at Kotoka International Airport in Ghana, and it means, “Welcome!”
