Whispers from West Africa
Explore the lands of West Africa, filled with magic and gold, wonderful wildlife beguiling people and a haunting historical past, welcome to the Africa of Old
Known as West Africa’s golden child, Ghana offers welcoming beaches, picturesque landscapes, rich culture, vibrant cities and diverse wildlife. Ghana today is one of the most stable and democratic African nations, but this wasn’t always the case; there’s the history of the Slave Trade, and the legacy of colonial rule, which is still visible in the remaining forts that stand guard over the coast.
The country is incredibly diverse with a vibrant capital city, a desert-like north with painted mud-walled buildings and rows of boababs, and a relaxed coastline with tropical beaches and rainforests.
The ancient capital of the Ashanti Kingdom is a major draw as is the Mole National Park which is still home to elephants.

Weather & Climate
Tropical Ghana is hot year round with temperatures of around 30-35ºC. The drier north has one rainy season running from April to October whereas the more humid south gets rain from April to June and September to October.
When to go
The dry season between October and April is a good time to visit with lower humidity, less mosquitoes and easier travelling conditions.
