Mole National Park
Mole National Park is the biggest National Park in Ghana and is the most visited game park in Ghana. Mole park is home to elephants, baboons, monkeys, warthogs, kobs, buffalo, leopards, lions, antelopes and many species of birds and reptiles, including giant restrictors.
The park is a popular birdwatching destination, with over 300 known species, including several rare and endangered ones. Guided tours, vehicle rentals, campgrounds, and other services are available at the park, guaranteeing a rich and rewarding experience.
Pikwaro Slave Camp
If history is your thing, then you’ll want to be sure to see the Pikwaro (“Rocks of Fear”) Slave Camp at Pago Nania, on the border with Burkina Faso. The slave camp was in use for 300 years starting in the 16th century as a way station and auction site for slaves captured from the region. Guided tours of the grounds are available, and provide tourists an opportunity to see up close one of the best preserved slave trading camps in existence. Visitors can see living quarters, eating facilities, kitchens, the old cemetery; even the watchtower is still intact. Fascinating markings on the stones were left by slaves who, according to legend, stamped their hands, feet, rocks and other objects in order to make rhythmic music. The locals will even perform traditional dances and songs believed to have been handed down from the time.
According to TripAdvisor: “A little out of the way from Paga but definitely worth the 2 km detour.”
Kintampo waterfalls is shaped like a staircase, and is one of the highest in Ghana. Located on the Pampu River, it is in a pristine, secluded area of forest about 4 km. from the town of Kintampo on the road to Tamale. The longest drop is 25 metres, and in total the three principal falls total 70 metres. One fascinating aspect about the falls is that it disappears underground only to reappear some 200 metres downstream.
