Accra is relativelycrime free however never assume that crime doesn’t exist everywhere, statisticswould suggest that violent crimes against tourists remain low in comparison toNairobi, Lagos, or Johannesburg. That being said bag snatching, also hold up’sat gun point and knife point are most likely to happen after dark off popularbeach resorts such as Oxford Street and around Osu etc. It pays to bestreetwise, follow rules of urban survival as you would in any urban city . ingeneral I have not witnessed anything that would lead me to believe that Accrain general is a cause for concern, as it seems as safe and hassle free as anyother African city once you get used to the street urchins and hawkers.
Accra mall is locatednear Sprintex road by Tetteh Quarshie Circle, home to the usual fried fast foodjoints, the mall is also home to Rhapsody a trendy new South African restaurantspecialising in meat and game, excellent cocktails and tasty food, the icecream still had icicles in it and cost C7 I regretted order it and would preferto have had a fan ice instead. The portions were meagre and the steak that camewith what looked like the best combination on the menu * Laurel and Hardy*C35.00 was tiny. And the portion of chips came on a side plate that looked asif were kids sized, the entire meal left me pissed off thinking I could makebetter at home. The highlight of the evening without a doubt were thecocktails, most notably the Taxi Cab, Rhapsody transform’s into a club withlive music on Thursday, Friday and Saturday therefore the venue is over 23’sonly after 6pm.
