Ghana's 10 Most Beautiful Places & Top Tourist Attractions

Ghana is a stunningly beautiful and culturally rich country in western Africa. It is a tiny country with amazing tourist attractions to offer the rest of the world. When it comes to democracy and gradual growth, this African country is considered to be one of the more "stable" ones.

Ghana is also recognized as one of the world's most prosperous nations, with people full of hope and happiness. Ghana is a great place to visit for visitors, with its sunny beaches, vibrant towns, friendly people, and simple ways to get around the world.

Ghana is divided into 14 areas, but the Northern and Southern parts are the most well-known. In Ghana, there are beautiful places in almost every town.


For example, in the southern part of Ghana, you can visit Kakum National Park, and in the northern part, you can visit Mole National Park. Continue reading to find out more about these and other tourist destinations!

1. Kakum National Park

Kakum National Park, which is known as the nation's park, is a must-see for all tourists. It is situated on the coast of southern Ghana and covers an area of 145 square meters (specifically the Central Region of Ghana). Many endangered animals, especially mammals like antelopes and elephants, can be found in the park.

A canopy walk is also available in the park, which is suspended 30 meters above the ground. If you're doing the canopy walk for the first time, it can be intimidating, but if you have a sense of adventure, it shouldn't be a problem. It gives you a bird's-eye view of the trees and helps you to appreciate the natural surroundings.


2. Boti Falls

Boti Falls, like all waterfalls, attracts visitors from all over the country and around the world. A Ghana attraction with a history can be found 17 kilometers northeast of Koforidua in the Eastern Region of Ghana.


Boti Falls is an important part of Ghana's landscape. Boti Falls is said to be a twin waterfall, with male and female falls representing the upper and lower falls, respectively.

When the amount of water from the falls increases, the locals assume the two falls are mating, so a mating ceremony is held. When there is a constant splashing of water, a rainbow is commonly created during the ceremony.


3. Volta Lake

The Volta Region is Ghana's least-visited region, despite having numerous tourist attractions such as mountains, waterfalls, and lakes.


The largest artificial lake in the world, Lake Volta, is located in this area. Lake Volta flows across the entire region, covering an area of 8,502 square kilometers.

The Akosombo Dam holds the popular lake, which is used for transportation. It also provides electricity to Ghana's people. Volta Lake maintains a tranquil atmosphere that helps you to relax and unwind.


3. Aburi Botanical Gardens

Since Ghana is located in Africa, the country and its environment benefit from the warmer climate, making the Aburi Botanical Gardens one of Ghana's most popular attractions!


The gardens were founded in March 1890 and are located in the town of Aburi, which is about 30 kilometers north of Accra in Ghana's Eastern Region. The gardens cover 160 acres of land, with 157 acres set aside and 3 acres dedicated to basic infrastructure.

Visiting the Aburi Gardens is a relaxing experience that will help you forget about the tension in your life. You can comfortably fly here to haggle since it is just a 45-minute drive from Accra.
