The Volta River Is The Main River System In The West African Country Of Ghana.
The main part of the river are the Black Volta, the White Volta and the Red Volta. In the Northwest, the Black Volta forms the international border between Ivory Coast, Ghana and Burkina Faso.
The river flows southward along Akwapim Togoland and it empties into the Atlantic Ocean at the Gulf of Guinea at Ada Foah.
It has a small tributary, the Oti which enters Ghana from Togo in the East.
