What can you tell me about malaria?
Malaria is real and it is here in Ghana. So is the malaria treatment. Look after yourself, when you don't feel well and have a fever just go for a quick malaria test at the nearest health center. Take the treatment as instructed and you'll be fine. Listen to the advice of locals and other people who have dealt with this before. And when you are staying at Moon&Star guesthouse, let Pat pamper you!
Do I need vaccinations before coming to Ghana?
Yes, proof of vaccination against Yellow fever is a requirement for your entry into Ghana. Check with a ravel clinic or your GP for other vaccins against hepatites A and tetanus amongst others.
Is Ghana safe to travel?
In general it is. Just use common sense, such as making sure you are where you need to be before it's dark. And listen to the advice that locals or the staff of restaurants/hostels give you.
