Broad, bedazzling, and unbelievable, Africa is so much more than its reputation would suggest. The birthplace of humankind, Africa is home to some of the planet’s most breathtaking scenery and to scenes that range from Arabic marketplaces to tribal villages and massive modern cities. The wilderness of Africa is not to be underestimated, spanning the whole range from rainforest to desert and including world-famous lakes, waterfalls, mountains, gorges, and on and on. But more than the landscape, it’s the people that make Africa an irresistible destination. Nowhere else is home to so many languages, cultures, and ways of life, within such an astonishing setting.
The coastal nation of Ghana is the perfect location for a first trip to Africa. The welcoming local culture and stunning landscape offer something for every kind of traveler, with fantastic national parks, pulsing local music, and moving historical sites.
