    Visa & Health

    Before coming to Ghana every visitor must receive a Visa and the yellow fever vaccination. Travellers from abroad are also advised to take a malaria prophylactic. More info.

    We do have a basic first aid kit and can offer basic care for minor wounds or illness. If in the event of a serious medical emergency the closest clinic is only 10 minutes away, the closest hospital is 1 hour away and we have the contact details of a very good doctor for immediate advice. If you have specific medical concerns we advise you may want to bring your own first aid kit.
