      Accra to Marrakesh/Casablanca

      by alycat Online Now Sep 19, 2015 at 6:42 PM

      Hello all,

      I will be traveling to Ghana with a 1 and half year old kid from the US in December. I want to visit Morocco too on the way back home. I looked online and found connecting airlines taking passengers to Europe and Mid east and bringing them to Morocco. Is there a cheaper and shorter way to fly to Morocco (Casablanca or Marrakesh) from Accra, Ghana?

      Any help/advice is greatly appreciated.

      Is Madina a good place to be as a first time visiting Tourist

      by MPBryan Online Now Aug 11, 2015 at 9:22 AM

      Hello I am hoping to visit Ghana for the first time actually it will be the first time for me visiting Africa. I am a single parent travelling with my two teenagers and so I will be on a budget but still wish to have a good experience. We will be going over the xmas and new year so I am hoping celebrations for this period will be great too. I have some contacts in Madina and so it looks as if this is where I may be based however some friends who are Ghanian seem not to speak to highly of the area and have mentioned that my kids and I are not very likely to have a good time if we stay there. Apparently it is very far from anywhere central, the beaches, the attractions etc. I will have to take taxi everywhere which will be costly and I am very confused. Please can someone shed some light if you have any familiarity with the area of Madina or just what I can expect on a very first visit to Africia. Ghana. Thank you

    • Ghanian son in law visit to Jamaica

      by benardkluvi Online Now May 23, 2010 at 8:45 PM

      I want my son-in-law to visit me in Jamaica, but every time he goes to apply for a transit visa for one of the countries that he needs to go through he is always refused a visa which is quite frustrating for us.
      I recently found out that Delta Airlines has flights from Ghana to Jamaica but there is a stopover in Atlanta for either 15:08 or for about 6 hrs depending on the flight chosen.Would he need a transit visa for any of these flights? I need advise please.

      Need advice on booking flight & hotel

      by pieface533 Online Now May 15, 2010 at 10:35 AM

      I plan to visit Accra, Ghana,for one week in July,2010. So far, I'm overwhlemed with selecting a reputable travel service to book my flight&hotel reservations. For example, on one hand, most online travel agencies(expedia for example) assert that they can save you around400.00, if you book both flight & hotel reservations with them, which their package comes to,approximately,2,700.

      But , when I separately research a R.T. flight through expedia for1,600(taxes &fees included),then consider the hotel, "Airport View Hotel," at90.00 per day, for five nights($450.00usd), I save650.00.

      Therefore, please give me details at how some of you booked your trip to Ghana, even if you bought into a tour package. Also, did you get a refundable ticket in case you would have to cancel for some reason?
