Welcome to Ghana – Africa for beginners !
Discover Ghana, the ‘Africa for beginners,’, a country packed with surprises and that has something for every type of traveler. Ghana offers a combination of off-the-beaten path natural landscapes and bustling coastal cities, while offering important traces of harrowing history too. Ghana is bordered by the Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, Togo in the east and the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean in the south. The word Ghana means “Warrior King” in the Soninke language.
Ghana has enjoyed stable democracy and incredible development and one of Africa’s true success stories. The country is filled with joyful, welcoming people, sunny beaches, rich culture, lively cities, tons of wildlife, and easy access to all parts of the country.
Whether you’re a solo traveler or with a family, on your summer holiday or you plan to travel to Ghana for business, Go Volunteer Africa has something for you in Ghana.
