The Volta River is the main river system in the West African country of Ghana. It flows into Ghana from Bobo-Dioulasso highlands of Burkina Faso; the main part of the river are the Black Volta, the White Volta, the Red Volta. In the northwest, the Black Volta forms the international boundaries between the Ivory Coast and Burkina Faso; the Volta flows southward along Akwapim-Togoland highlands, it empties into the Atlantic Ocean at the Gulf of Guinea at Ada. It has the Oti, which enters Ghana from Togo in the east; the Volta River has been dammed at Akosombo for the purpose of generating hydroelectricity. The reservoir named Lake Volta stretches from Akosombo in the south to the northern part of the country, thus being one of the largest man-made reservoirs in the world. Lake Volta is a reservoir impounded by the Akosombo Dam on the lower Volta River in southern Ghana, it is one of the largest reservoirs in the world. It extends from the Akosombo Dam in southeastern Ghana to the town of Yapei in the Central Gonja District, Northern Region of Ghana, some 400 kilometres to the north.
The dam's power plant generates electricity for the Volta River Authority, the reservoir provides water transport routes. It may be a resource for fish farming; the depth of the river is about 45 feet below Lake Volta. The Volta River is crossed by the Adome Bridge just below the Akosombo Dam; the Volta River was named by Portuguese gold traders in Ghana. It was their farthest extent of exploration before returning. "River of return" or “river of the bend”, in reference to its curved course.

The Ofin River is an easterly-flowing waterway in Ghana. It flows through the Tano Ofin Reserve in Ghana's Atwima Mponua District; the Ofin riverbed is 90 metres above mean sea level. The Ofin has cut steep side channels, average depth 12–15 metres, into the rolling terrain over which it flows; the Ofin and the Pra rivers form the boundary between Ghana's Ashanti region and Central region. Dunkwa-on-Offin is a major town on the river. Gold is mined from the river's sediment. Native species include a benign type of airbreathing catfish; the Barekese Dam is located on its course.
