West Africa ' Ghana
Maybe you're more interested in culture and history...A trip to Ghana is filled with enough of both to last a lifetime! Ghana is situated on the southern coast of the West African bulge and is bordered to the east by Togo, to the west by the Ivory Coast, to the south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and northwest by Burkina Fasso.
Centuries after their ancestors were forced into slave ships off the coast of West Africa, African Americans and others continue to trace their roots back to the continent to learn more about their history. Ghana is making a special effort to welcome them.
Ghana's Elimna Castle is one of several former slave forts along Ghana's Atlantic coast and is a hugely popular destination and a place of pilgrimage for African-American tourists and visitors from other parts of the world with cultural and historical links to Africa.
