Hotels in Ghana
Ghana, located along Africa's Gold Coast, is nestled between the Ivory Coast, Togo and Burkina Faso. This nation of around 27 million inhabitants features prairie-like savannas, dense rain forests and uncrowded Atlantic beaches. Ghana was a major trading center of Portuguese, Dutch, German and Swedish merchants from the 16th century to modern times and was a British colony from the mid-19th century until the country's independence in 1957. Many influences from these cultures can still be found in the country's art, cuisine, language and architecture. More than one million international travelers visit the country each year.
