Pauwel en Marleen’s updates

We just returned from a 3 week trip through Ghana and would like to make some remarks with regard to information in the bradt guide (edition 2010) :

Accra : Shangri-la hotel has closed its doors

Afram plains : ferry Agordeke-Kpando has broken down since last year : crossing is not possible with cars

Mole : M&J shuttle is not organised any longer. Daily Metro bus is leaving from Tamale around 14.00 hrs (5 GHC) and returning at 4.00 hrs . Mole hotel : very good quality as compared to 28 years ago. Elephants, baboons, antelopes and warthogs frequented the compound. There is an extra offer now for guided 4 wheel drive tours (100 ghc for the vehicle to be shared by max 8 persons)

Tamale : bikes to rent at the taxi station for 3 ghc per day. Relax-lodge : completely overrated (135 ghc for a double room with full risk of electrocutation in the bathroom ) and breakfast is only included for one person. No indian food available! Picorna hotel was much better quality for more than half of the price. Asempa lodge : 7.5 km out of town on the road to Kumasi (not Daboya road as indicated on the map). Cheap and spacious rondavels for 50ghc (dbl, brkfst and dinner incl). Brkfst with pancakes ! Front of the motel under reparation after storm. Possibility of guided tour to nearby village at 15 ghc pp. (revenues go to the community).
