The Dzorwulu Neighbourhood

Home to one of Ghana’s former presidents, Dzorwulu is a beautifully planned residential area catering to the middle and upper classes of Accra society. Bordered by Roman Ridge, Abelemkpe and, Shiashie, most residences in this neighbourhood are walled and many residents have hired private security guards, which makes it a haven for the more security-conscious.

This neighbourhood is teeming with lots of businesses cutting across multiple industries: Law, Retail, Consultancy, Entertainment, Education, Beauty and Fashion, including rapper Sarkodie’s store and designer Aya Morrison’s atelier. Right at the Dzorwulu traffic light is also the well-known Perez International Chapel. Just about any service, a new resident may need is most likely attained in the area or close by. This makes Dzorwulu one of the prime areas to seriously consider if you are in the market for a house for rent in Accra.

According to residents here, there are lots of Nigerians and Ivorians in this neighbourhood and “Everything is too expensive in this area, from food to services and rent.” A no frills 1 bedroom apartment in Dzorwulu can be found for upwards of GHS 400 per month, with much nicer properties with modern amenities averaging GHS 5,000.

Be mindful, though, that after 9pm, it is very unlikely you will find a trotro within the area. Some workers we spoke to in the neighbourhood, while very glad about the ease with which they get public transport (taxi and trotro) to and from Dzorwulu during the day, complained about getting a reasonable price from taxi drivers at dusk when it’s time to go home after work.
