Tourism - Upper West Region of Ghana, Attractions, Info's and Photos - Ghana Home Page -
The Upper West Region is one of the ten regions of Ghana. It is located at the North Western corner of Ghana, bounded to Burkina Faso to the North. It covers a geographical area of 18,476 square kilometres which represents 12.7% of the total land area of Ghana. The northern Ghana-Burkina Faso border, on the east by the Upper East region and Northern region, on the south by the Northern region, and on the west by the western Ghana-Burkina Faso (formals Upper Volta) border borders the Upper West region on the north.
It is the seventh largest region in Ghana in total area, and it is made up of eleven (11) districts. By virtue of its location, it has the potential for international and inter-regional trade and other bi-lateral relations, but the spillover of criminal activities and disaster, such as bush fires, diseases and pestilence, some armed robbery etc., from our neighbors also pose a threat to the region.
The Wechiau Hippopotamus Sanctuary is located South West of Wa, along the Black Volta River in the Wa West District. There is also the Gwollu Wall in the Sissala District, which also serves as the hometown of one of Ghana's late president - Dr. Hilla Limann.
