Malaria is deadly
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Pack your malarone in your bags. In UK it is GBP2.50. here it is USD 8 per tablet! If you can get it on prescription and free, even better. Many frequent visitors do not take prophylactics, but do carry the test kit.

Accra is a warm place
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Accra is a warm place. Cotton clothing as synthetic fabrics are too uncomfortable in the heat. Females should dress for example in a long wrap around skirt and blouse. Males should wear long trousers and a shirt. Casual clothes are acceptable for leisure. The shoes should not be too warm, and easy to take on/off, like a sandal.

- Jungle and Rain Forest
Things essential to life
Miscellaneous: If you are coming for more than 5 minutes, pack the Marmite. Unlike many other members of the commonwealth, there is no marmite in the shops. Even Kabul had Marmite. You can buy Quaker oats and even Scotts porridge oats, but not Marmite. Colmans English mustard there is, but no Marmite, not even Vegimite. Something has to change. Life without Marmite is not worth living.
