Embark on a journey to explore the stunning beaches of Busua and Cape Coast, where tranquility awaits with open arms. With turquoise waters and pristine sands, these coastal jewels offer a perfect getaway from the hustle of the cities. If you are an adventure lover, you may also surf the waves in Busua. In the northern regions of Ghana, you can have a unique safari experience at the Mole National Park. Take a guided tour and search for antelopes, elephants, and over 300 species of birds. There are eco-lodges in the park wherein you can immerse in the wilderness and, at the same time, contribute to conservation efforts made by the locals. Teaming up the iconic destinations in Ghana to implore visitors is delicious cuisine. From the delectable banku and tilapia to spicy grilled kebabs and jollof rice, Ghanaian food is a blessing to one's taste buds.
