Ghana's mainland is largely flat and consists mainly of tropical rainforest and wetland, grass and coastal savanna. The highest elevation of the country is Mount Afadjato with 885 meters. There is a continuous tropical climate, only with the change between rainy and dry season. The largest inland lake in the country and the largest artificial artificial body of water in the world is the Volta Reservoir. The wildlife of Ghana is very diverse, such as parrots, antelopes, leopards, elephants, hippos, buffaloes, warthogs, chimpanzees, monkeys, baboons, iguanas, monitor lizards, crocodiles, snakes, lizards and eagles. Off the Atlantic coast are some of the richest areas of the world's richest fish, including lobsters, lobsters, tunas, clams, snails, crabs, barracudas and sharks.
Ghana is very important to the world economy due to its abundance of raw materials. The country's most important export is gold, which has given the country the name "Gold Coast". The state earns about 37% of its export revenue from gold mining. Other minerals are oil, natural gas, diamonds, bauxite, manganese and limestone.

After the Ivory Coast, Ghana is the second largest producer of cocoa, employing one million cocoa farmers and three million harvest workers. The country is the third largest supplier of hardwood and other wood products in Africa, including 23 exotic species such as mahogany.

Kwame Mausoleum and the Botanical Garden.
In July 2016 I traveled to Ghana coming from Gambia during my West Africa trip. The city of Accra is very modern, which one part of the wealth of Ghana looks at, but otherwise is a typical African city. The people there are very friendly and helpful and you immediately notice the higher education compared to almost all African countries. After a day's stay I went to Freetown in Sierra Leone in the evening.
