Accra is the best place to visit in Africa - Times Magazine


The City of Accra has been named by the TIME magazine as the best place to visit in Africa.

The recognition places Ghana's capital, Accra  ahead of Benguerra Island of Mozambique and Egypt’s Cairo who followed respectively.

According to TIME’s  2021 World’s Greatest Places, Accra is easier to access and  a key destination for visitors interested in connecting with Africa’s history and its people’s heritage.

It also mentioned that tourists will have many things to see in the capital including museums, beaches, arts. 

The Accra nightlife, as well as good food, were not left out of things visitors should look out for.

Prior to compiling the World’s Greatest Places list, TIME solicited nominations of places including countries, regions, cities and towns—from our international network of correspondents and with an eye toward those offering new and exciting experiences

According to TIME, its third annual list highlights one hundred extraordinary travel destinations around the world.

The publication stated that the third annual list of the World’s Greatest Places “is a tribute to the people and businesses at the forefront of those industries who, amid extraordinary circumstances, found ways to adapt, build and innovate. It shines a light on ingenuity, creativity, revitalization and reopenings in destinations across the world.”

Nine other  destinations in Africa that followed Accra, according to TIME were Benguerra Island in Mozambique, Cairo in  Egypt, Chimanimani National Park in  Mozambique, Kruger National Park and KwaZulu-Natal in  South Africa, Lake Kivu in Rwanda, Marrakech in Morocco, Okavango Delta in Botswana, as well as  Sao Vicente, Cape Verde.
