Depending on your budget, there are many ways to explore the best of what Ghana has to offer. If you don’t want to spend a lot when you arrive, plan ahead.

We recommend saving your Ghanaian cedi for an unforgettable safari experience.

Ghana's two major cities, Accra and Kumasi, both operate minibus services, also known as tro tros. Taxis are another common form of transportation in cities, but if you're travelling further afield then hop on a bus. Most of them are air-conditioned and some have charging ports, screens, toilets and even fridges. Make sure you book in advance as they can get busy.

The second-most populous country in West Africa is teeming with rich culture, wild nature and important history.

The busy streets of Accra offer plenty to keep you busy too, from museums and markets to beaches and nightlife. Plus, there are plenty of opportunities to see some of Africa’s incredible wildlife, including crocodiles and baboons.
