Ghana is not at the forefront of most people’s minds when they plan their summer vacation. That’s a shame, because it’s a beautiful country that delights with rich culture and lush vegetation.

Take Kakum National Park, a tropical rain forest that’s home to over 40 species of mammals (including forest elephants and monkeys) and countless rare plants. A guided tour over the forest’s famous Canopy Walkway, built 30 feet above the ground, will be a memory you won’t soon forget. Or you could visit the 400 year-old Cape Coast Castle, or one of the many cultural festivals.

Of course, you won’t want to go without your electronics. How else could you capture all the memories you can make in this beautiful country? So before you go, it’s good to know just what to expect in terms of electricity.

Ghana uses two types of outlets, both of which run on 220-240 volts. You may recognize the British-type outlet from its similarity to U.S. outlets, but the Indian outlet will likely look odd if you spot it for the first time. Coming from the U.S., your plugs won’t match either of these, so you may need to look into a travel plug adapter for Ghana.

But be careful. The difference in voltage (the U.S. uses 110-120V) means an adapter is likely not enough. To prevent your electronic from going bad, be sure to purchase a transformer or converter as well!

Fortunately, we can help. At 110220volts.com, we offer several kits that ensure your electronics will work no matter the voltage or outlet type. Contact us today to explore your options!
