What to pack for a trip to Ghana was an ongoing and overwhelming thought for me. Even though we got a list of things to bring from Hayet I still felt super unprepared. So I made a list of things I packed (and the things I forgot) because if you should find yourself in Ghana I want you to be more ready than I was!
Most countries in Africa require some form of vaccination. For Ghana, the Yellow Fever shot is required. You can get it at the airport in Ghana but I’m not sure I trust it. Make sure you check before traveling what type of vaccinations are required and recommended. I went to Passport Health because the doctor had to order the shot which would take weeks. During my appointment, the nurse offered a few different shots and pills but I only opted in for the Yellow Fever shot and the Malaria pills. Malaria is a common disease in Africa and if untreated you could die. No one has time for death.
P.S. Don’t be like me, please remember to take your pills!
