Ghana has secured the 9th position among Africa’s top 10 safest countries for women to visit in the latest Global Women Peace and Security Index 2023.

This index, which assesses 177 countries based on criteria like women’s inclusion, justice, and security, highlights the Seychelles as Africa’s top-ranking country, with Ghana closely trailing behind.

Other countries featured in the top 10 list include Cape Verde, South Africa, Mauritius, Tunisia, Rwanda, Botswana, Tanzania, and Sao Tome and Principe.

Each of these nations is recognised for their commendable efforts in ensuring the safety and security of women.

Conversely, the report identifies the Central African Republic as the most unsafe country to visit, with additional countries like the DR Congo, South Sudan, Burundi, Eswatini, Somalia, Niger, Sudan, Chad, and Nigeria ranking poorly. This signals significant challenges concerning safety and security for women travellers.

Ghana’s inclusion in the top 10 reflects the nation’s dedication to advancing women’s rights, safety, and inclusivity. This encourages travellers to explore Ghana’s diverse landscapes and vibrant culture with confidence.
