    • Need Help Planning Trip To Ghana 4/9 To 4/14

      Ghana Feb 22, 2015 at 6:37 PM

      I'm currently in Los Angeles, but grew up in London and Ghana, and speak Ga and Twi.

      Last time I was in Ghana was 20 years ago, so I'm sure a lot has changed.

      I'm planning a short trip to go catch up with family - 4/9/15 to 4/14/15 from LAX (Los Angeles) to ACC (Accra, Ghana).

      I'll be staying with family, and could ask them to plan things, but I'd rather do it myself.

      Trip is for just 1 adult.

      I need help with a few things :

      1. Which website has the best flight deals to Ghana?, currently looking at travelocity, and it looks to be around $1250 round trip.
      Is there a better site with better prices?

      2. I have a phone that uses a sim card. I'd like to buy a sim card with data and airtime compatible with Ghana, while I'm still in Los Angeles, so I have service when I land, and don't have to go looking for a sim card when I land. Which website has the best options? I'll be using whatsapp to keep in touch.

      3. Is there an airline that's better?, noticed Delta, Klm and british airways so far. Which airline has better food, in flight comfort etc?

      4. I'd like to rent a car for the 4 day period. I have driving licenses from Ghana, Uk and US.
      Which website can I rent a car from? Not planning any long trips, just driving locally in Accra.

      5. What do I do about money? Read that I should not use cards in Ghana, so do I fly in with cash? Where do Americans withdraw money in Ghana? Are there atm fees? Which place offers the best currency rates and options?

      Any tips or additional info, would be appreciated.

      Thank you.

      My daughter and I are doing a 2 week small group tour of Zim. in July this year. We want to go to Harare a couple of days early, and look up places my late husband lived in and worked at during the 1950's....changed a lot, of course.I am wanting to know if there is a B&B not too far from the city, which might also offer a tour around for a couple of hours. If not, does anyone know of an accredited guide who might takes us around

    • Five hour stop over in Addis Abeba

      Addis Ababa Feb 23, 2015 at 10:07 AM

      On our way home from the Seychelles to Sweden we are having a 5 hours transit Monday 2/3 from 7.40 p.m. to 00.40 a.m. in Addis Abeba. Is it even worth considering leaving the airport and take a taxi to town? For seeing a sight or two at night and a stroll in the city, maybe a quick meal. If yes; where should we go? We like architecture, and would like to feel the city's pulse. Strolling around outside with our cameras is prefered.

      We are both females and one is holding a Norwegian passport, the other one a Swedish passport, so we can get visas on arrival at the airport. Is the visa on arrival service slow?

      Please notice the question regards the evening/night, so going to the nation museum etc is not an option.

      As I am travelling by Emirates, I will be at the T3, DXB. Can you let me know if it is possible to visit the duty free shops and do some shopping for the kids/family. Do recommend some nice things to shop.

      2. I will be staying in Jo'burg for around a month (March-April). How's the weather there at that time, I believe its summer but also read it gets quite cold. Let me know so that I can carry suitable clothing.

      3. Although on an official trip, I will have quite some free time during weekends etc. Do recommend some nice places to visit in and around Jo'burg.
