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!
I’m sure insect repellant is a no-brainer but these mosquitoes in Africa are not playing with y’all so you’re going to need something a little more potent. Before I left I sprayed all my clothes with Duration™ Permethrin 0.5% and for our hikes and night time fun I lathered up with Ultrathon Insect Repellent Lotion. I got bite maybe once and that was the first night we arrived when I forgot to lather up. Le sigh.
