Accra

Overview

The city of Accra takes its name from the Akan term for ants. The analogy is useful as a symbol of the collective industry critical to civilization; as well as the literal anthills that were once ubiquitous across the savannah (and are still revered as points of communion with the afterlife).

However you look at it, the Ghanaian capital will be unlike any other destination you've travelled to - from the compact beaches of the Atlantic shoreline to the crazed mix of colonial influences in central Accra's architecture, everything about this city is raw, untempered, and alive.

The Accra Experience

Your first concern should be getting around. Most locals prefer to walk, which is not feasible during the summer months. Hiring an SUV is advised, especially if you wish to explore the outskirts. Hybrid minibuses (TroTros) are popular on  major thoroughfares but get bogged down during peak hours.

Major attractions include Osu Castle (built by Danish colonizers in the 17th century and the current seat of the government), the National Theatre (which resembles a gigantic, soaring gull), and Jamestown (a popular fishing centre in the oldest part of Accra). Don't miss the view from the lighthouse!

Unwind after a long day at Labadi Beach, which comes alive every evening with musicians, dancers, acrobats, and other street performers! Accra's most affluent hotels - La Palm and La Badi - flank the Beach; but the best souvenir stalls and handicraft vendors will be found further along the coast.

Ultimately, the prevalent mood of your voyage depends on the people you encounter - and Accra's populace is a constant source of wonder. Simply strike up a conversation with the cheerful locals and you will know tenacity, dinner invitations, and a dozen forgotten locations worth your time.
