Purchase Ghanaian CEDI only in Ghana. On arrival at the Accra Airport exchange funds for cedis. Bring all cash. Carry your extra money in a money belt. Please do not bring travelers checks as they are very difficult and expensive to cash.
All transactions will be in cash. Credit Cards can be used on a limited basis. You can withdraw cash at local ATM machines, and charge a hotel room. The regional airlines and guesthouses DO NOT accept credit cards.
Bring a fanny pack that has a compartment to hold your dollars, passport, and ticket, on one side and the Ghanaian currency on the other, with a center, compartment for wipes, chapstick, anti-bacterial hand gel, snacks, a pocket on each end for a cell phone and a camera. A fanny pack is invaluable because you can keep your hands free and keep your valuables close. You will need all your documents at several check points at each airport. I usually carry several small coin purses for coins from each country.
