Peak season:

It is still relatively undeveloped for tourism, so there is no specific peak season to book flights to Ghana. July to April is practically the peak season, with the exception of October. March offers the warmest weather but with it you’ll find crowds of tourists surrounding you. The rainy season can be cooler, but temperatures are always high. If you don’t like humidity, stick to the coast. Make sure you secure your flights to Ghana well in advance no matter when you plan to visit.

Off season:

April to July are the wettest months of the year. You’ll find the cheapest flights to Ghana then— but don’t expect your flight tickets to be reduced too much. Tourism is strong practically all year round and that includes the rainy seasons. August is theoretically the coolest month so you might get lucky and find slightly discounted flight tickets. The weather is sunny and hot most of the year, with December being the most expensive month to find discounted flight tickets.  Other than that, Ghana doesn’t suffer from much of an off season so you will find it difficult to find cheap flights to Ghana in any specific month.

When is the best time to book a flight to Ghana?

Regardless of which month you are hoping to book your flights to Ghana, aim to secure your flight tickets 2, 3, or even 4 months earlier if you can. Although the prices are competitive, you’ll still find flight tickets are relatively expensive with very few drops in price throughout the entire year. Being flexible with your dates will help you secure the cheapest flights to Ghana, and if you can deal with warm weather along with some rain, then April to July make for good months to find cheaper flight tickets. Events, festivals and Christmas time will cause the price of flights to Ghana to shoot up so either avoid these altogether or make sure you plan well ahead of time and secure your flights tickets early.

Which day is cheapest to fly to Ghana?

The cheapest flights to Ghana are usually found when departing on a Friday. The departure day with the highest cost at present is Thursday.

What time of day is cheapest to fly to Ghana?

To get the best value, try booking a flight at noon when visiting Ghana. Generally the prices will increase for flights in the morning as these tend to have higher demand.

Ghana Travel Guide

Ghana is rich in history, culture, wildlife and landscape. Travelers who set off on flights to Ghana are on their way to one of Africa’s less-explored gems. Although it is renowned as one of the friendliest African countries, Ghana is not that well set on the tourist trail. This may come as a surprise, given its location on the coast, the acres of wildlife parks in the north, and some of the most vibrant cities to be found in the continent.

Ghana flights take you to Africa’s west coast near Togo, Burkina Faso and the Ivory Coast. While the country is plenty populated, it’s likely the plane to Ghana will be sparsely filled. This African country is still an unexplored destination by many travelers, and tourists will feel the warmth of the people within seconds of disembarking the plane.

Most flights to Ghana land in Accra, the country’s capital city and the most populated region on the Gulf of Guinea. Accra offers travelers typical city accommodations including a rich restaurant and nightlife scene. It is a bustling place, which can be intimidating at first sight, but many travelers quickly fall in love with its energetic pulse.

Ghana boasts extensive natural parks; the most famous is Mole National Park. This wildlife expanse is home to many animals, birds and reptiles. Travelers booking flights to Ghana can experience one of the greatest rainforests in the country. Kakum National Park features canopy walkways and nature trails, and is a must-see destination stop for eco-travelers. Book tickets to Ghana during the country’s festivals and experience an awesome escapade of dance, music, and colorful decorations and crafts from Ghana’s citizens.

Hop on a flight to Ghana and prepare to be amazed.

What’s the weather like in Ghana?

Ghana has a rainy season that lasts from April to October. The south gets a break from the rain in July and August. The humidity is high and temperatures can be anywhere between 70 and 90 degrees. It dries out the rest of the year, and temperatures climb up to 100 degrees. March is the hottest time of year and August the coolest.

How long is the flight to Ghana?

Depending on your travel plans, a typical flight to Ghana could last from 15 to 30 hours. Although a few major carriers fly to Kotoka International Airport in the capital city of Accra, connections and layovers are common  for this destination. Be prepared for at least a 16-hour trip from New York, and pack enough in-flight entertainment to stay busy on a 25-hour flight from San Francisco. If you’re traveling up from Cape Town, South Africa, expect a trip of about 11 hours.

Which airlines fly to Ghana?

Ghana airports mainly serve major airlines based in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, including British Airways, Lufthansa, KLM, Egypt Air, South African Airways, Turkish Airlines and Emirates. Fortunately, these carriers partner with many North American airlines, so flights are readily available through Delta, American and JetBlue if you’re departing from the United States or Canada.

What should you pack for a flight to Ghana?

No matter what time of year you visit, pack light clothing, sandals and sunscreen to stay comfortable in Ghana’s eternally tropical climate. Temperatures over 70 degrees are common throughout the year, and they can climb to 90 degrees in the summer. Bring a light sweater or jacket for the occasional breezy day if you’re staying close to the coast or traveling during a rainy season. This period of heavy rainfall lasts from April to October in the north, while the south has two wet, humid seasons from April to June and September to November. The dry harmattan season sweeps the country from December to April, so it’s smart to bring moisturizing lotion and medication for any respiratory illnesses to protect yourself from dusty winds.

Getting to and around Ghana

The quickest way and easiest way to get to Accra’s city center is with a taxi from outside of the airport. You’ll find them waiting at Car Park 2. Most drivers don’t use meters so make sure you agree on the price of the fare before getting in. A lot of the attractions in Ghana are rather spread out so it might be of interest for you to hire a car from the airport and drive everywhere yourself, however, if you’re just planning to go to your hotel then a car will be a hindrance. Once you’ve booked your flights to Ghana it might be worth inquiring with hotels before you book to see if they offer transfers.

Roads are not well-maintained throughout most of the country and the easiest way to navigate them—especially if traveling far—is to rent a 4×4. However, be prepared for Ghanaian drivers, who feel no compulsion to stay within the confines of the road—let alone their own lanes—if potholes are in the way. The easiest way to get around is to hire a car, but to reiterate, be sure this is a sport utility vehicle with 4-wheel drive. Many of the roads are filled with potholes or fade to dirt tracks off the main routes.

Tro-tros are an inexpensive and interesting way to travel. These minibuses cover almost all destinations you could wish to visit. They leave when they are full—however long it takes to fill—stop wherever anyone wants to get off, and often transport animals (certainly a chicken or two) along with passengers. Tro-tros are slow, but an essential experience for anyone wanting to view the country and spend time with its people.

Regular buses are available for longer trips. Again, schedules, if existent, are rarely adhered to. It is not unusual for a bus that is meant to leave at 6am to still be waiting in the depot for more people to get on at midday. Take a good book, plenty of food, and a great deal of patience if you’re traveling by bus. As with tro-tros, traveling by bus is an excellent way to meet Ghanaians—often said to be the friendliest people in Africa.

What are some things to do in Ghana?

The warmth and energy of Ghana’s rich culture draw you in from the moment your plane touches down. Although Ghana is just emerging as a tourist destination, this coastal nation is overflowing with historical landmarks, vibrant beaches, bustling markets and stunning nature parks.

A flight to Accra brings you to the center of Ghana’s nightlife and resort scene. Enjoy a chill day of volleyball away from local hawkers on the white sands of Bojo Beach, or explore the sparkling seashore of Labadi Pleasure Beach on horseback.

Wildlife is plentiful in Ghana’s many national parks. Spare some time for a guided safari tour through Mole National Park, where travelers get a window into the natural habitats of elephants, monkeys, crocodiles, antelopes and birds. Heading to Cape Coast? Venture along the canopy walkway at Kakum National Park for a panoramic view at the stunning rainforest, and stop by the Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary to mingle with the wildlife.

History buffs should make their way to Ghana’s preserved castles and forts. Manhyia Palace Museum gives you a glimpse of the legendary Ashanti kingdom and the growing influence of European settlers. Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle aren’t for the faint-hearted, but these well-kept sites deliver an intense and emotional look at the slave trade.

Shopping is sure to be an exciting affair for travelers who love the thrill of haggling at traditional open-air markets. From artisan crafts to colorful garments to fresh-caught fish, local goods line the walkways of Makola Market in Acra and Kejetia Market in Kumasi. If you don’t speak the language, be sure to grab a guide to avoid getting lost in this lively maze of stalls.

Without a doubt, it takes more than one trip to sample Ghana’s wealth of art, history, cuisine and leisure activities. Book a flight today for a firsthand look at all Ghana has to offer.

Tips for your stay in Ghana

  • Accrais the capital and by far the biggest and most vibrant city in the country. It has undergone extensive modernization recently, but parts are still incredibly poor. It can feel intimidating upon arrival, but if you’re lost just ask a local for directions. Ghanaians are incredibly friendly and will be happy to help.
  • Kumasi is one of the largest metropolitan areas in Ghana. The town is much more laid-back than Accra and often preferred by tourists. Once the seat of the Ashanti region, it was also the center for gold production of the gold coast. The Southern coast is dotted with white sand beaches and the odd resort hotel. It is also where Ashanti sandals are made, so be sure to pick up a pair while you’re here.
  • The roads in Ghana can be a bit of an obstacle to tourists. Crossing roads in town, driving (especially in Accra) or simply being a passenger on a bus take some getting used to. In Accra the traffic is highly congested, and it is not unusual for cars to physically nudge other vehicles in order to get ahead.
  • The Mole Game Reservein the north of the country is worth a visit if you have time to spare. Here you are as likely to see a warthog rifling through the rubbish, or a gorilla at the window of your hut, as you are to see them in the reserve. An early morning trek to watch the elephants bathing is strongly recommended.
  • Don’t be alarmed if you are hissed atin the street – this is a local means of greeting and not a sign of disapproval.
  • The coast itself is a mixture of idyllic beaches and old slave forts. Cape Coast and Elminaboth have well-preserved forts that mark the beginning of the slaves’ perilous journey during the era of slave trade.
