How to Spend 3 Days in Accra

How to Spend 3 Days in Accra

With its hip creative scene and a wealth of historical landmarks, there’s much to experience in and around Ghana’s buzzing capital. Whether you’re keen for culture or wild for wildlife, here are some top tips for getting the most out of three days in Accra. 

Day 1: Adventures in Accra

Spend your first day familiarizing yourself with Accra’s historic landmarks and diverse districts on a sightseeing tour; tours with round-trip transfers allow you to zip seamlessly between top attractions such as Kwame Nkrumah Park, Fort James, and Independence Square. Then, take time to explore Accra’s sprawling markets, where you can pick up a local lunch and purchase unique souvenirs. Exploring Makola or Kaneshie Market with a guide promises to provide deeper cultural insight and allows you to overcome the language barrier. After your active day, unwind with a sunset cocktail on Labadi Beach or immerse yourself in the city’s nightlife on an after-dark adventure in Osu or Labone.

Day 2: Explore Beyond the City

Ghana’s capital offers convenient transport links to several surrounding attractions, allowing short-term visitors to widen their knowledge of the region’s cultural heritage within one day. Day trip options, which typically include convenient pickup and drop-off at your Accra hotel, cover Kakum National Park, accessible via suspended canopy walkways; Shai Hills Resource Reserve, home to zebras and antelope; and the west Volta Region, which offers a glimpse into traditional Ghanaian culture. Several tours offer multi-attraction itineraries and tend to return to the city in the early evening, giving you you plenty of time to take part in an nighttime cooking class or live music session.

Day 3: Animal Sanctuaries and Art Galleries

If you’d like to see more of Ghana, some day trips travel as far as the northern Mole National Park, Ghana’s largest nature sanctuary, or to the country’s eastern border, where the Wli Waterfalls and Tafi Monkey Sanctuary prove ideal for nature lovers and active hikers; both are easily accessible by private transfer. Alternatively, spend your final day experiencing Accra’s famous art scene; drop by creative spaces such as the ANO Gallery and Nubuke Foundation before rounding off your visit with a meal at one of the upmarket restaurants in the Airport Residential Area, conveniently located beside Accra International Airport.
