A Slice of Northern Ghana

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 a 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 for the full experience.

We got to see Kumasi, Kintampo, the white and black volta, the famous Tuabodom town and a lot more sights on the road trip.

On day two we traveled to Damongo, and then to Larabanga in the savannah region 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 everyone’s 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 approximately Ghc 1,300 per individual and it covers bus transportation to & from Accra, accommodation, ground transportation, and all your fees and safari charges.
