Ghana, or officially the Republic of Ghana.
Ghana is located in Western Africa. Ghana is bordered by the Gulf of Guinea, Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, and Togo to the east.
The reason for naming the country
The meaning of Ghana means "Warrior King" and was the title accorded to the kings of the medieval Ghana Empire in West Africa, but the empire was further north than the modern nation of Ghana, in the region of Guinea.
