10 Places to Visit in Ghana

The first country in Sub-Saharan Africa to gain independence after colonialism, Ghana gained independence on March 6, 1957. Ranked as Africa’s most peaceful country, Ghana is plenty safe for travelers from the West, such as you and I, and there’s so much culture to explore, there’s no way to see it all in one trip. 1,117 more words

Feb 2017 trip report

My sister and I travelled to Ghana recently – 19-28 Feb. We used the Bradt Guide (6th edition) and found it invaluable both in our planning and on our journey – I see there is now a 7th edition, so some of our observations may have been addressed. 153 more words

Kakum, Elmina Castle, and Trump

Our base for the first half of the trip was Ko-Sa Beach Resort, about 20 minutes west of Elmina. We love living in the city – access to more goods, events, and people – but every now and then it’s nice to escape, and Ko-Sa provided a perfect location. 813 more words
