Lake Volta Overview

Lake volta, in southern Ghana, is the largest man made lake in the world covering almost 8,502 kmĀ². The weekly cargo ship that passes along it passes through some stunning scenery and is an incredible experience.
The lake was formed in 1965 when the Akosombo Dam was built. Owing to the formation of Lake Volta, 78,000 people were relocated to new townships, along with 200,000 animals belonging to them; 120 buildings were destroyed.
