The Eastern Region of Ghana is a rich blend of dramatic landscapes, historic relics, and traditional cultures. The ancient blends with the 20th century in this region so close to but such a contrast with Accra.
The region is dominated by Lake Volta, one of the world’s largest man-made lakes, and the Akosombo Dam, the source of much of Ghana’s hydroelectric power. Both are worth a visit. A favourite excursion is the weekend trip to Dodi Islands.
