Just spent 2 days getting someone who’s never travelled solo outside Accra up to Abengourou in Cote d’Ivoire & worked out a route for him & we were in touch hourly almost on WhatsApp! Asked him for some feedback to get an idea for others, he arrived a few hours ago, tired, hot & weary (& wishing he had more French) Northern route to Abengourou from Accra for future reference. Day1: Accra(circle station) to Sunyani on VIP bus (40 cedi, but real comfort). Finally filled up at 9am, arrived around 3.30pm Stay in a hotel in Sunyani. If you want hot shower and AC, you can squander 50 USD on Eusbett Hotel http://eusbetthotel.com/ (hysterical website). The aim was to stay at the Tropical Hotel but he wanted air-con! Day2: Woke up at 6 am, trotro to Berekum at 7am (1.5 hrs 3 cedis). Then a trotro to Debiso (4hr 10 cedis), the road was absolute nightmare. Shared cab from Debiso to Niable crossing the border (5 cedi plus 500 CFA). Got ‘done’ by un-uniformed border guard for stamp costing 2,000CFA (I’m furious, just wait till I get there!). Then Niable to Abengourou 1000 CFA – 40 min on minibus. Arriving around 4pm
