Day 1:    Accra – Kumasi – Techiman

Depart Accra early morning to Kumasi. Take a visit to the Manhyia Palace Museum and the Prempeh II Museum both of which provide a good insight into Ashanti culture and traditions and also the history of the Ashanti Kingdom which is over 300 years old, similar to that of the Dahomey Empire. They provide a good knowledge of the powerful ancient Ashanti Empire and its past kings. Later visit the Kumasi Central Market – the largest open-air market in West Africa. Continue drive to Techiman. Overnight in Techiman. (B & D)

Day 2:    Techiman – Kintampo – Mole

Today depart Techiman to Kintampo and take a 100 step staircase down to the spectacular waterfalls where the Pumpu River falls about seventy (70) meters down beautiful rocky steps and continues its journey towards the Black Volta at Buipe. This superb fall mysteriously disappears and resurfaces 200 meters away from its original location. After lunch, drive through the dry sahel region of Ghana to the Mole National Park in the Northern Region of Ghana. You will notice a sharp vegetation change as you travel along. Mole is 4840 square km of rolling landscape with pristine guinea savannah vegetation. Overnight in Mole. (B & D)
