Ghana is in West Africa on the Gulf of Guinea and bordered by the Ivory Coast, Togo, and Burkina Faso. As it was a former British colony, the main language spoken is English and the people are very friendly. This makes Ghana a great spot for a first time visit to Africa. In fact, many travel guides refer to Ghana as “Africa for beginners.” Accra is the capital city where there is the most to see. Ashley had the opportunity to spend two weeks in Ghana traveling from the south to the northern part of the country.

Here are some photos from that trip that showcase the beautiful country of Ghana:
