Top 5 reasons to visit and volunteer in Ghana

  • Cape Coast - this is one of the most historical areas of Ghana. Learn about the old slave trade, take a tour around the impressive castle, forts and dungeons and learn about the history of the Ivory Coast.

  • Beads - a town in the east of the country affectionately known as Kof-town becomes overrun every Thursday by Ghana’s biggest bead market. Here you can haggle and buy old trade, shell, painted and coconut beads and pretty much every other type of bead that you can imagine!

  • Beaches - learn how to surf on the Cape Coast or spend a few days taking in the sun and drinking fresh coconuts (a popular weekend treat for our volunteers)! Accra, the capital city in Ghana and Cape Coast both offer some brilliant sandy beaches, our personal favourites being Labadi, Kokrobite and Ada.

  • Safari - Kakum National Park offers a rainforest canopy walkway, and for those brave enough, an overnight tented camp in the centre of the jungle. Or head north to Mole National Park, Ghana’s largest wildlife park, walk amongst elephants and tigers, but watch out for the cheeky baboons who love to steal fruit!

  • Ghanaian traditional cuisine - dig in with your hands and try fufu, pounded casava and plantain made into a dough with a spicy soup, or sweet fried plantain with ‘redred’ a mixture of beans and lentils.
