Lara Croft visits Ghana in Tomb Raider Legend, this level takes place right after Japan.


After being advised by Allister that there may be one of the sword pieces in Ghana, Lara arrives there with her off-road Ducati. Lara swan dives off the cliff, reaching a small portion of earth with a puzzle she must solve to open the waterfall, showing the temple that was hidden behind it. As she makes her way through the temple, she fights hordes of Rutland's mercs, solve puzzles of huge scale and avoid traps, rolling boulders and falling rocks. In the outside area of the temple, Lara loses contact with Zip and Allister. Reaching the last room of the level, she meets Rutland again. As they talk, Rutland tells Lara that the sword piece that was located in Ghana is the Ghalali Key, but it's not there anymore, and that Amanda thinks that Lara's father found the key. As expected, Lara and Rutland fight. Rutland, defeated and without his sword piece, is interrogated by Lara. She finds out that the sword isn't broke, it was designed to separate and reatach, and the Ghalali Key does that. Rutlands says that Amanda is at Lara's mansion, and that she better have a good insurance. Leaving the temple, as she rushes with her Ducati, Lara regains contact with her team. Allister tells here where the next piece is, and she heads to Kazakhstan.
