Tema is Ghana's major port and your gateway to Accra, the nation's capital. Europeans descended on Ghana in the 15th century in search of gold. The wealth of the slave trade led them to stay, erecting forts along the Gulf of Guinea and naming the region "The Gold Coast." Today, Ghana is a fascinating destination, and one of the most densely populated countries in West Africa, with a population of approximately 20 million.
