Tema – nick-named the “Harbour Town” - is a city on the Atlantic Ocean coast of West Africa, 25 km east of the capital city of Accra, in Ghana. The Prime Meridian (0 deg. latitude) passes through the port, which is also just 614km north of the equator, situating it closer to the "centre" of the Earth geographical coordinates than any other habitat. Originally a small fishing village, it grew after the construction of Africa’s largest artificial harbour in 1961, and is now the nation's largest sea port. The road layout, industrial and recreational areas, and social amenities are in advance of many other African cities.

Tema is now a major trading centre and home to an oil refinery and numerous factories. Most of the country's chief export, cacao, is shipped from Tema. Adjacent to the commercial harbour is Tema fishing harbour. Ghana gained independence in 1957 (formerly British Gold Coast). The country’s natural resources include gold, oil, diamonds, and other mineral deposits. The country is predominantly Christian, and English-speaking. Visitors may look to buy colourful hand-woven Kente cloth, Adrinkra cloth with its unique printed symbols, as well as modern African print fabric that is known and worn internationally.

Tema is a gateway to a friendly country that excels in its unique music, dance, heritage sites, natural scenery and wild animal life. However, carved 'fantasy coffins' are probably Tema's most well-known export throughout the world. They reflect the deceased's occupation (fish for fishermen, vegetables for farmers), or particular vice. Soda and beer bottles are fairly common, as are mobile phones. Tribal chiefs traditionally get lions, although they've been switching to Mercedes Benzs in recent years, considered the most 'prestigious' of coffins.
