Here are some of sites to
Aburi Botanical Garden
Aburi is situated on the Akwapim-Togo Range. It’s less than an hour drive from Accra, the capital of Ghana. Aburi has a cool, mountainous climate that appeals to people who like the cool side of life. The Aburi Botanical Gardens are situated in this cool, serene environment. The garden spans a total area of 160 acres. In fact, only three (3) acres have been developed. The rest serves as a botanical reserve. Guests of all ages can experience this garden’s edifying, aesthetic and spiritual qualities. If one considers that humans are genetically adapted to draw their healing, peace, and replenishment from nature. It’s perfect for a picnic.
Ghana’s first mosque is known as the “Mecca of West Africa.” It is the oldest mosque in Ghana, perhaps even in all of West Africa. In spite of inclement weather and shoddy construction, the structure has survived hundreds of years.
Here is a little back story about the mosque. In the 1970s, the mosque deteriorated and reconstruction crews applied cement to the walls in an attempt to strengthen them, but the mixture allowed moisture to penetrate the ancient wooden beams. Following a termite infestation, a storm brought down the weakened minaret. The Ghana Museums and other bodies funded and employed local artisans to fix their mistakes. They removed the cement and reapplied a mud paste. The minaret was rebuilt, the walls were whitewashed, and the mosque was restored to its former glory.
Mole National Park; West Gonja, Ghana
Visiting Ghana’s largest wildlife refuge is like walking in the animals’ backyard. The Mole National Park is located about 90 miles northwest of Tamale in northwest Ghana. Due to the park’s remote location, its grounds are still relatively undeveloped and untouristy, which gives you the feeling of wandering through the animals’ own backyard. The park stretches across about 3,000 square miles and is nourished by the Lovi and Mole rivers. There are a lovely getaway hotel and pool on the grounds that overlook the savanna woodland, where elephants may be seen meandering by water holes.
The Tengzug Shrine
A popular tourist attraction in the northern region, Tengzug Shrine was once used by slaves escaping their captors. Now, it is used more traditionally for religious animal sacrifices for good luck and for pleasing the ancestors of the Talensis. Visitors can scale the rocks up to the Tengzug Shrine with a guide. A private tour ride may be rented or you may take public transport or travel by plane to travel to the Tamale from Accra and continue by road to Bolgatanga, Ghana.
