Green Global Travel, an ecotourism, nature/wildlife conservation and cultural preservation magazine has named Ghana as one of the top travel destinations in Africa.

According to the research Ghana is among 36 top travel destinations for 2016.

The list was based on the recommendations of a group of 35 experienced and well-travelled bloggers from around the world.

“This year we decided to ask some of the well-traveled authorities we know veteran bloggers who specialise in adventure travel, ecotourism, cultural travel and family travel – to get their expert opinions on the best destinations for nature-lovers to travel in 2016,” Green Global Travel said.

“From snowshoeing in Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Scuba diving the Andaman Islands to gorilla-trekking in Rwanda and exploring Son Doong Cave in Vietnam, you’ll want to settle in a comfy chair and immerse yourself in these incredible, once-in-a-lifetime adventures,” it said.

With Ghana, the Magazine said: “You are invited’ is the standard phrase uttered when Ghanaians start eating.”

“As a traveler in Ghana, you are always invited. Hike Afadjato, the highest mountain in Ghana, or go bird-watching on a canopy walk in the rainforest of Kakum National Park, the country’s first protected area.

“To spot elephants, visit Mole National Park. In Bolgatanga you’ll discover the rich culture of the Frafra people, known for weaving the world-famous Bolga baskets.

“In Elmina and along Cape Coast you’ll find several castles and forts recognised by UNESCO. Enjoy the beautiful beaches, which are popular for locals during weekends and holidays, when families and young people come to swim and play.

“Learn to play drums from energetic musicians at the Art Centre in Accra, or attend cultural events such as festivals and traditional celebrations of birth, marriage and death,” Elin Reitehaug of Taste of Slow recommended.
