  1. Ghana, because of its tropical latitude and coastal location, is considered a west African country. Although relatively close to Ghana, Mali should be consided a sahelian African country, since it adjoins the Sahara and is quite dry.

    Those are my opinions. There is not formal agreed-upon division of Africa into regional zones.
