Kwabenya is an upmarket suburb in the Ga East Municipal district, a district in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.[1][2] There are a number of high-end gated communities and estates in the area, including two Regimanuel Gray estates, some of Ofankor Hills Estate, and some of Franko Estates among others, which border with the neighbouring suburb of Pokuase. Kwabenya is only separated from its neighbour Pokuase by the Pokuase Interchange and the two areas may soon merge into one when the linking roads between the two areas are completed by October 2020.
