Guided village walk

Decide to walk through the village and gain a splendid insight into the daily lives of a rural community in Northern Ghana. You will be observing villager activities and share experiences with some of the villagers. You will have the opportunity of meeting the village’s legendary medicine man, and discover how his methods have continued to survive with the use of natural cures.   In addition, you will be able to learn and participate in shea butter and gari processing as well as aid a Fulani pastor with his herd.

 

 

Cultural Performance
Situated openly in front of the Basumu chief’s household, the village square is where the Hangas people regularly perform their mystical dances. This has become a symbolic highlight of our traditions and culture, especially during festivals, Christmas and Eid, and weddings and funerals. Enjoy the melodic blend of the Tumpani (talking drum), Dawuro (metallic rhythm instrument), Konkas, the Daribila (short drums) and trumpets made from wild animal horns. Witness the splendor of these rituals near a warming bonfire, as you will never want to escape such a vivid display.

Home-Stay
Following the entertainment and exciting activities, you may choose to stay a little longer in our village. We offer hospitality in one of our traditional homes, where you can sleep comfortably between the walls of warm clay-mud, or you can choose to gaze at the bright silver stars as you rest on the rooftops of our buildings.  You don’t want to miss this opportunity, especially during the warmer seasons. The home stay option will give you unique insights into the lifestyles of our villagers, and an unchangeable firsthand experience of Mognori’s splendid hospitality. You will learn how Shea butter is locally processed and how we prepare meals with generation-old recipes.
Camping space is also available near our visitor information centre, but you will be required to bring your own tent.
