Climate, geography and culture all conspire to make Northern Ghana surprisingly and radically different from the rest of the country. Beaches and lush rainforest give way to the sparse beauty of the savanna, home to some of Ghana’s most exciting wildlife attractions. A short, breathless ride from rapidly modernising Tamale, the northern region’s capital, and you’re in another Africa, a land characterised by extraordinary colour, diversity and deep spirituality. Akwaaba, as the Ghanaians say, with the warmest smiles in the world...welcome!
The warmth of African smiles and rugged beauty of the grasslands will make the hardships and simple lifestyle you may have to endure worthwhile.
