Tourist attractions in the city of Accra includes:
- The oldest university in Ghana, called the University of Ghana which is a 10 minute walk from where the conference will be held (ERATA Hotel). The campus is well laid out with beautiful Victorian buildings and is a must see place. It is a joy to walk around or you can arrange for a tour of the campus.
- The Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum where the remains of the First President of Ghana and one of the founding fathers of Pan Africanism lies is located in the Centre of Accra. You can take a small bus from the hotel to the Centre of the city for 0.5 cents and visit the place. Look for the written undefended PhD thesis of Kwame Nkrumah.
- Volta lake in Ghana is the largest man made lake in the World. This is the major source of hydroelectric power in Ghana. You can take a ride on the boat that travels from the dam town Akosombo to Yeji a town in Northern Ghana. But must book well in advance. You will travel with food stuffs and other animals. Akosombo is only one hour drive from Accra provided there is no traffic.
