If you want Africa but on a more raw level than Cape Town, Ghana is a terrific option.

It is a developing country where the official language is English, although you’ll hear a lot of unfamiliar slang.

The people are extremely welcoming and are eager to share their customs, traditions and stories.

Accra is a coastal city and there is plenty of history to take in.

There’s beaches, shopping, great nightlife and definitely great eating.
