Delicious food, exciting new experiences, a historic mosque, and spending an afternoon watching elephants play in the mud; are enough reasons to go on an adventure in the north!
On this 3 day adventure, we spent day 1 traveling to Tamale, days 2 and 3 exploring the region whilst enjoying the nightlife in Tamale.
On day 1, we traveled to Tamale. The drive to Tamale is an 11 to 12-hour journey with multiple stops along the way.
The ride was enjoyable, although long. Alternatively, you can fly to Tamale.
But I recommend the road trip.
We got to see both the white volta and black volta, the famous Tuabodom town and a lot more on the road trip.
On day two we traveled to Damongo, and then to Larabanga to visit the Larabanga Mosque, the oldest Mosque in Ghana, and the Larabanga Mystic Stone which has a fascinating story of its own.
Going on a Safari ride to the Mole National Park later that day was my favorite part of this trip.
Although I have done the Safari ride several times, my excitement was unmatched!
We saw several mammals and different species of animals but my favorite was the elephants!
These majestic animals are lovely to watch, and we were lucky enough to get close to them 😃
Nightlife In Tamale was a whole new experience, we got to eat street food, sumptuous well-seasoned meat popularly known as kyinkyinga, and several delicacies on the streets of Tamale.
We also enjoyed nice cocktails, good beer, and great vibes at Chucks Restaurant, one of my favorite places in Tamale.
Running around town was equally fun, we took rides in “Yellow Yellow” the popular affordable tricycles used as taxis in the north.
The overall budget for this trip is about Ghc 1,300 per individual and it covers Transportation, Accommodation, Running Around Town Expenses, and All Tour fees.
