Touching down in Accra is a chance to immerse yourself in the sights, sounds and smells of one of Ghana’s most vibrant cities. Packed full of colour and energy, in our experience, there is never a dull moment to be had here – whether exploring a local market or picking up a bite to eat at one of the city’s many street food stands. For a sneak peak into city life, check out our selection of top Accra videos.
