On a tour of Accra, you can experience the vivacious and dynamic atmosphere of Ghana's sprawling capital city, a commercial and tourist hub of the region.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park and James Town Lighthouse. Relax by the water at Labadi Pleasure Beach and Bojo Beach. Change things up with a short trip to Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary in Senya Beraku (about 1h 40 min away). There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Legon Botanical Gardens, take in nature's colorful creations at Aburi Botanical Gardens, explore the world behind art at Gallery 1957, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Ghana.

Plan my day in Accra using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

Brussels, Belgium to Accra is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Brussels to Accra due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Brussels in February, expect Accra to be much warmer, temps between 38°C and 30°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Mon) early enough to travel to Busua.
