When to Visit

Ghana plays host to a tropical climate, making it a good year-round destination. However, for the most pleasant conditions, the best time to visit is during the dry season, from November to March. This is an ideal time to explore outdoor destinations such as Mole National Park or take a leisurely stroll through Accra's bustling markets.

The rainy season, between April and October, could hamper some outdoor activities. However, this could also be a superb time to experience the lively cultural scene within sheltered cities and towns, as visitor numbers tend to be fewer. Regardless of the season, Ghana, with its rich heritage, diverse landscapes, and warm people, is a delightful discovery.
