We have decided to help you with a travel- friendly list especially if you currently reside in West Africa, is stucked there (because of the ban on international flights) or will be visiting West Africa. Here goes the list.

Countries you can travel to from West Africa includes:


Known for its colourful cultural wears and music and ranked Africa most peaceful country, Ghana is indeed a nice place to visit and enjoy a vacation in, especially in it’s capital, Accra.

Ghana weather is on the hot side. It can also get pretty hot, reaching about 30°C or 86°F, on most days. The heat is tempered by the cool breezes blowing in from the Atlantic Ocean.

They speak English as an unifying language. Two of the most widespread native languages are the Twi language of the Ashanti people – which is spoken in the southern and central regions – and the Dagbani language of the Dagomba people – more commonly spoken by people in areas to the north.

Ghanian food is a mix of indigenous flavours and outside influences – like European and Indian. You will find tomato-based stews with complex flavours throughout Ghana. The stews usually contain a type of marine or freshwater fish and are eaten with a dough, which is used to scoop up the fish and soak up the fragrant sauce. The dough – sometimes called fufu or akple – is made from any type of starch including cassava, plantain, yam, maize, millet, sorghum, potatoes or cocoyams. Another staple of Ghanaian cuisine is jollof rice: a one-pot rice dish that includes a variety of Ghanaian spices with tomatoes and chili. Peanuts are often used to flavour stews and garnish dishes. You will be sure to find taro leaves and okra in many of their dishes.

Considering trying Ghana for a vacation after the pandemic? Yes! Though ensure you have yourself a Kente cloth (a fabric worn by Ashanti royalty) while leaving. Also remember to change your money to cedi since this is the currency used in Ghana.



Wow! Now, this country, also known as “Rainbow Nation”, is known worldwide for their skills in sports including rugby, cricket, golf and soccer. They have about twelve tourist centres you don’t want to miss out either. You should also note that South Africa is the 24th-largest country in the world. That will help you when you feel you have exhausted all the places to visit while there.

South Africa has a generally temperate climate being surrounded by the Atlantic and Indian Oceans on three sides and is home to the oldest meteor scar in the world – the Vredefort Dome in a town called Parys. It is known for the winds.

English is the fourth most common first language in the country (9.6%), but is understood in most urban areas and is the dominant language in government and the media. So be sure to keep your English language skills handy.

Don’t leave South Africa without eating their special meals: biltong & droewors, boerewors, malva pudding, chakalaka & pap, braai/shisa nyama, bunny chow, bobotie and melktert. South Africans enjoy not only beef, but mutton, goat, chicken and other meats as a centerpiece of a meal incase you are meatatarian. On weekends, many South African families have a “braai,” and the meal usually consists of “pap and vleis”, which is maize meal and grilled meat.

Ethiopia is a landlocked country on the Horn of Africa, in the east of the continent. It is bordered by Djibouti, Eritrea, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, and Somaliland (Somalia).

However, Amharic is the “working language” in Ethiopia together with Oromo, which is one of the two most widely spoken languages in the country though English is the most widely spoken foreign language.

Ethiopian cuisine (Amharic: የኢትዮጵያ ምግብ) characteristically consists of vegetable and often very spicy meat dishes. A typical dish consists of injera accompanied by a spicy stew, which frequently includes beef, lamb, vegetables and various types of legumes, such as lentils which are not only healthy and nutritious, but is also a great way to expose children (if you are visiting with your kids) to new flavors and teach them about other parts of the world at the same time.

Be sure to change your money to Ethopian Birr (ETB) in any Ethiopian bank while visiting. It is a plus to know their currency is known to be very strong.

This North African country is mostly visited by tourists to see the famed Sahara Desert. Other places they want to see may include: Hassan II Mosque, Mint Tea and Pastries, Majorelle Garden, The Islamic Architecture, Todgha Gorge and The Tagine.

The best time to visit Morocco is during spring (mid-March to May) or fall (September to October). The weather is warm but pleasant, unlike the cold temperatures and snow of winter, or the scorching heat of summer. The coastal regions can be visited year-round.

In Morocco there are two official languages, Arabic and Amazigh, which are spoken in the streets and villages of Morocco.

The main Moroccan dish most people are familiar with is couscous. Beef is the most commonly eaten red meat in Morocco, usually eaten in a tagine with a wide selection of vegetables. Chicken is also very commonly used in tagines or roasted. They also use additional ingredients such as plums, boiled eggs, and lemon.

The best currency to use in Morocco is Dirham, denoted as MAD or Dhs. It’s preferable when you go out pay in Dirham currency. The Moroccan currency is the Dirham. £1 sterling is approximately 13 Morrocan Dirhams.
