The R&K Guide To Accra

With a historical legacy that inspires pride in the African diaspora and a cultural footprint that reaches the entire continent, Accra is the place to begin any worthy expedition into the multilayered tapestry of West Africa.

Regardless of what makes this gritty city of chaos and joy get under your skin, the capital of the first African nation to be free of colonization is unforgettable. Jump in.
