Hints and Tips for Ghana

Red Tape:
Visas are required for British Nationals. We got our visa in Ouagadougou it took 24 hrs and cost 26000 CFA. Getting into Ghana was a hassle and took two hours at customs, but it was September 11th. There were also curfews in place in Tamale.

Fuel Costs:
Diesel 2000 Cedis per litre

Road Quality:
Generally good tarmac all over the country

Cedi 12500 cedis = £1

Beware the largest bank note is 5000, a trip to the bank results in leaving with a plastic bag.

There are Barclays and Standard Chartered Banks in all major towns. There are also ATM’s in Accra


Mole National Park. It is difficult to get to without your own transport, but a beautiful park with some wildlife.  The Coast West of Accra: The beaches are tropical, and the old slave forts are worth visiting.

Places to Stay:

The campsite at Mole National Park cost $1.50 and you can overlook the water hole.

Alaska Beach Resort in Busua, is a quite beach resort on a beautiful stretch of coast next to Dixcove.

Ko-Sa, is further along the coast towards Cape Coast, more expensive but very peaceful.

Kumasi: The Presbyterian Guest House, you can camp in the grounds cheaply.

Accra: The Salvation Army in Osu, is cheap, clean, with good facilites and in a good area

Useful People:

It is cheap and a wonderful place to relax, it is well worth spending a couple of weeks here.
