What's the latest situation on bus from Accra to Cape Coast. Bart guide seems to say STC buses are not really running? Are there frequent busses from Accra to Cape Coast on a Saturday afternoon? Or will I have to leave in the morning?
I will spend 35 days in Ghana next month, and to my understand it is quite common that Ghana Travelers also seize the opportunity to see Togo and Benin as well.
Could someone who has done such a trip recommend how much time it is warranted to spend at each country?
I would imagine that you would spend most time in Ghana, but about how many days in Togo and Benin to at least get some feel about them? Is Togo and Benin very similar so it might be best to settle for one of them, or different enough…

It's a 5-6 cedi taxi ride from the inn to Oxford Street. The inn also provides airport pickup. The staff is helpful, especially…

My main question is - am I better off basing myself in Ho? OR should head straight to one of the small towns, like Amedzofe?
Any tips would be helpful! Planning to crossover from Kpalime in Togo.
My good friend and I, Wendy, have had a trip planned from Ghana to Senegal/the Gambia for a while now, but, what with recent terror attacks etc. we are a little concerned now that our original planned route may not be the safest. We were planning to go from Ghana through Burkina Faso, Mali and then into Senegal/the Gambia. However, is this no longer an option? Too risky?
Our flights are already booked to Ghana in June and then from the Gambia at the beginning of August.

I never saw them open the bottle.
Do they still do that?
