The Center of Ghana

A tourist spot pointed close to kintampo is said to be the geographical center of Ghana
Yeji

Yeji is a town with a population of about 35,000 inhabitants located on the shores of Lake Volta in the Atebubu District in the Brong Ahafo Region. The strategic location of the town has turned it into an important market centre and a major transport hub, which serves as a transit point between the north and south of Ghana for goods and people. If you want to cross the lake to reach Tamale you must board the ferry at 9.15 am [local fishing boat 8am and 9am] for a fee. It takes just about 45 min. It is much more interesting to take the fishing boat, arrive 30mins earlier if you want to have some space. You can catch the STC bus from here to Tamale [Takes Approx 2-3hrs] see the full details of the journey from Akosombo under interesting places in the Eastern Region.
