Accra Journals

Fantastic timesaving help.

A December 2003 trip to Accra by Longship

Quote: These people doubled what I could cover in two weeks.

Fantastic timesaving help.


Saltponds, Cape Coast, Elmina, Kumasi, Bonwire. Traveling alone to these places surrounded by wonderful and generous people.

Quick Tips:

Preston Park Hotel in Tema (tel 022 204181). This Ghanain/English owned hotel gave me such help that I wasted no time trying to make arrangements for travel. They even supplied me with food to eat on my journey.

Best Way To Get Around:

Travel outside Accra is best on the STC state owned buses. Try to book on the express service. I hired a car and driver through the hotels for £10 per day in the towns on arrival.
