When traveling to Ghana, there are three categories of things to visit — castles, national parks and beaches. St. George’s Castle is the oldest European building found in sub-Saharan Africa. There’s a small museum inside the castle that offers guided tours. Another castle is Cape Coast Castle. This castle was first built as a fort by the Dutch and used for the slave trade. Today it’s now a museum about Ghana’s history, the local culture and the slave trade history in the area. When it comes to the national parks, visit Kakum National Park and Mole National Park. The first is a tropical rainforest where you can walk across the Canopy Walkway to see the forest and the more than 250 bird species living inside the park. The latter is the largest wildlife park in Ghana, where you can go on a walking safari or game drive to see elephants, warthogs, hyenas and other large wildlife. With the hundreds of miles of coastline, Ghana has plenty of beaches for its visitors. Busua, Axim, Kokrobite and Labadi are some we recommend checking out on a warm, sunny day.
