● 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 afrokulcha­
