What to pack for a trip to Ghana was an ongoing and overwhelming thought for me. Even though we got a list of things to bring from Hayet I still felt super unprepared. So I made a list of things I packed (and the things I forgot) because if you should find yourself in Ghana I want you to be more ready than I was!

2. Pills and Vaccinations

Most countries in Africa require some form of vaccination. For Ghana, the Yellow Fever shot is required. You can get it at the airport in Ghana but I’m not sure I trust it. Make sure you check before traveling what type of vaccinations are required and recommended. I went to Passport Health because the doctor had to order the shot which would take weeks. During my appointment, the nurse offered a few different shots and pills but I only opted in for the Yellow Fever shot and the Malaria pills. Malaria is a common disease in Africa and if untreated you could die. No one has time for death.


P.S. Don’t be like me, please remember to take your pills!

    I have not been to Ghana but I have been to Uganda. Depending on your accommodations, I would not suggest bringing fancy luggage- even if it is hard shell. I go to Goodwill before traveling to Africa to get luggage for $5-10 because I don’t want my fancy set to get damaged, scratches and dirty.
