Setting out from the traditional village of Sirigu, which is famous throughout Ghana for its strikingly painted and uniquely constructed adobe homes, we take a short detour through the nearby village of Kazigu to meet with a womens farming group and tour their admirable reforestation project outside the village. From here, we continue on to Ghanas northern border with Burkina Faso, where youll be swept up in the ancient traditions and cultures of Ghanas north at Paga Pios palace, residence of the chief of Paga and home to enchanting traditional architecture, art, and artifacts. Our next stop is just outside of Paga, where a guided tour of the Pikworo Slave Camp, a scenic and rocky area once used as a transit point for captives headed to the coast, is a fascinating and sobering reminder of the areas tragic history. On a lighter note, and for our last stop back in Paga, the sacred crocodile ponds are a sight (and photo opportunity) you wont soon forget! With a young chicken as bait, you can touchand strike a pose withany one of the semi-tamed crocodiles resident in the centuries-old pools.
