● One Ghanaian cedi will cost you about R3, but goods are still affordable, and shopping or eating out won’t break the bank. You can buy a meal for 50GHS. Although some shops and restaurants have speed point machines, it is advisable to carry cash.
● Public transport is easily accessible and reliable. eHailing services such as Uber and Taxify are available in Accra.
● English is the official language so communication is easy.
● My trip was R7,800 (excluding flights), arranged by Afrokulcha Travel, which organises packages for solo and group travellers in Africa and abroad. See afrokulchatravel.co.za
