This trip is for the adventurous and curious minded! With a south to north and back drive we take in the many key areas of Ghana’s natural and historical beauty. In Kumasi there is so much to squeeze in from the largest market in West Africa to the Old Palace and an obligatory open air drink at a local spot to properly enjoy the atmosphere.
Heading further north we emerge through the forest lands into the flat Savannah lands that cross over the confluence of the Black and White Volta rivers before we head West to Mole National Park. Here is one of the only places in West Africa where you can take a walking Safari with Elephants and get up close and personal! A truly liberating experience! Brace yourselves for a wicked adventure!
1 Hour before departure
Put simply – expect a good time!! From start to finish there will be banter, laughter, new sites to explore and mini-adventures. Obviously there will be lots of driving as Mole isn’t exactly down the road, but with the sound system, on board bar, fun guides and adequate breaks, the journey will fly by! What we expect is for your mind to be open and sense of adventure on high alert!
