Ghana, a nation on West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea, is known for diverse wildlife, old forts and secluded beaches, such as at Busua. Coastal towns Elmina and Cape Coast contain posubans (native shrines), colonial buildings and castles-turned-museums that serve as testimonials to the slave trade. North of Cape Coast, vast Kakum National Park has a treetop-canopy walkway over the rainforest.
The Independence Day of Ghana was officially announced on 6th March, 1957. The people of Ghana were under the rule of the British and finally with lots of struggle the country became free. Ghana was the first Black African country to gain its independence.
