1. Accra: Tamale & Savannah Tour with Mole National Park
Meet your guide at Tamale Airport and your driver will drive you through Tamale, the capital city of the Northern Region. Afterward, enjoy a scenic drive to the Savannah region where you will discover the vibrant culture of Ghana's largest region. Stop at Larabanga and visit the oldest mosque in West Africa, built in 1421. Admire the building, constructed in the Sudanese architectural style, and the restoration work that has been done on it several times since it was originally built. Depart the mosque to visit the sacred Mystic Stone, which is known to return to its original place of rest after several attempts at moving it to a different location. In the 1950s, some British road constructors were compelled to redirect a major road after 3 attempts to remove the stone. Discover this legendary rock which has been conserved as a tourist site by the locals to preserve its history and generate revenue for their communities. Start your second day with breakfast and a visit to Mole National Park, Ghana's largest wildlife refuge. Go along the Lovi and Mole Rivers as they flow through the park, leaving behind only drinking holes during the long dry season. Have the chance to spot some elephants, baboons, leopards, antelopes, and other animals. Have a final stop at Mognori Eco Village, where you will embark on a guided walk and a canoe safari. Witness the unique dance steps and music of the locals before you depart Tamale and go back to Accra.
