Road Trips in Ghana
Car rental in Ghana can take you from the capital city of Accra down along the coast towards the beaches of the western resorts. You can also explore the UNESCO-listed castles and forts that line the shore and are a reminder of the European colonial period.
The entire stretch of coastline between Accra and Cape Three Points – the southernmost point of Ghana – is packed with fascinating places to discover in towns such as Elmina, Cape Coast and Busua, and the freedom of your own hire car will help you make the most of your road trips.
Beyond the attractions of a road trip down Ghana’s coast, there is plenty more to discover inland, too. Head north from Accra to the striking landscape around Lake Volta, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world.
Drive further west to the Ashanti region, a mix of natural beauty and traditional culture, from the hustle and bustle of the capital Kumasi or the traditional craft villages just outside it. In the wide expanses of Ghana’s Northern region, a rental car will help you reach the fascinating city of Tamale as well as Larabanga with its unique architecture and location as gateway to the Mole National Park.
