Exploring Ancient Ghana
Far away from the tourists in the south, you'll find a beautiful stretch of country in the Brong-Ahafo region. Tucked away down a tiny dirt road, is the village of Hani. In Hani, you can take a tour to the Sacred Hole - a hidden little oasis deep in the bush. A 45 minute walk through cashew farms and grassy fields, will bring you to this ancient archaeological site. The people of Hani and Begho are said to have emerged from a hole in the ground over 1000 years ago. Begho grew to be a large city, archaeologists have discovered 77 streets lining this ancient town. A trip to Hani is a refreshing change of pace from the hawking street sellers and overpriced hotels in Accra. Adventure out and discover a different side of Ghana.
