Things to Note
Clothing: Ghana is very warm in general and so light cotton clothes are generally a good idea. You should also bring a hat – the sun is very strong here, even in the winter. It might be a good idea to bring a fleece in case of cooler evenings in the north and at higher forested elevations. While in the National Parks, you should wear natural, neutral colors – bright colors can make you stand out, meaning that you’re less likely to spot wildlife. In general, shorts are acceptable, although there may be occasions when it is appropriate to wear long trousers. Long trousers also provide better protection against insects and are recommended for nature walks.
Climate: The region experiences two distinct seasons and travel is possible all year. The dry season runs from October until April, and the wet season from May until September – these can change by a few weeks either side depending on climate variations. The rains, although heavy, usually take the form of short sharp bursts. In higher elevated forests it can be cool at night and in the early morning so you should be prepared accordingly. Visa support if necessary (letter of invitation).
