As one of the more developed nations in Africa, Ghana is the ideal gateway to the continent for intrepid but, perhaps, apprehensive travellers looking for a soft introduction. In 2012, Ghana is predicted to become increasingly popular given that the country offers visitors a microcosmic taste of the continent in a politically stable, economic prosperous environment -- all in English to boot (English is the country's official language). For an authentic Ghanian experience, be sure to attend one of the country's many festivals, flamboyant, colourful displays of pageantry that showcase their love of song and dancing. Wildlife watching is also plentiful at Mole National Park, home to elephants, crocodiles and antelopes.
