Achala Village Tours, Paga

Steve and Shelley write

We traveled throughout Ghana during November 2016. Your travel guide (edition 6) was invaluable to us.

One of the many highlights of the trip was the time we spent in the northern border town of Paga.

Achala, of Achala Village Tours, which is referenced in your guide, was especially helpful.

In addition to the Pikworo slave camp he was able to show places where slaves lived and prepared food that are off the beaten track, explained the many uses of indigenous plants such as the baobab tree, explained how people collectively maintained their potable water pumps that were originally installed by the Canadians in the 1980.

He has bikes to rent and can arrange for food, transportation, and places to sleep, but most of all he was very knowledgeable, friendly and authentic.
