Ghana - Classic Ghana

Built to house construction workers involved in the completion of the hydroelectric dam, Akosombo is the location of the world’s second-largest artificial lake, making that mark, until the Three Gorges Dam was completed in China.

When you visit the dam, the Volta River Authority will organise a tour, and an experienced guide will explain its history and the essential role Akossombo plays in Ghana’s economy. Because of the permanent availability of water through floodgate operations, the dam provides for off-season farming all year round.
