If you have read my post-How to travel around Ghana, you will know people told me all the Monkey in Tafi is Dead! And they don’t know where is Wli Waterfall. So, the other day, I had my 2nd attempt to go there and this time I finally met some local who knew something about their country:P It’s a LONG DAY afterall because it took me 3 1/2 hours from Somanya to Wli.
A girl told me I didn’t need to travel all the way to Hohoe to get to Wli waterfall and there’s a shortcut on the way. The trick was I need to take a motorbike(around 10 Ghanian Dollars) at a junction through a dusty road to get there! Well, I took my chance because it’s faster(definitely not cheaper) and got to see the waterfall finally!!
The waterfall..like I expected was JUST OK and I had seen better but it’s definitely an experience to get there. You can see some big trees on the way and it’s very interesting:)
Some local Ghanian family traveled all the way from Accra to there and they shared with me their local cusine-Apapransa.
I tried to google this local food but failed. I think they told me it’s a mix of maize with pepper and meat. If you know the exact name of this food and know what it is, please let me know.
Afterward, we tried to head back to the junction with the motorbike but the driver discovered there’s a puncture of the back tire of his bike. He tried to pump air to the tire every 10 mins so we can at least get back to the junction but we are JUST too heavy! So at the end he needed to call his friend to pick us up to the junction!
And I had to tell you guys when I traveled with Tro Tro that morning to get to Tafi, the Tro Tro broke down also so we had wasted a lot of time through out our journey! So, whenever you guys want to travel around Africa, just relax, this things always happened and if you do not chill out, you will just have a heart attack sooner or later:P At the end of the day, you will still reach your destination, it’s just you do not know how long………
Next we headed to Tafi Monkey sanctuary to see this unique monkey call Mona monkey. Please note on the internet , there’s so many fault information regarding how to get to this place. The sanctuary is NOT located in Hohoe, it’s located in Tafi which is closer to the south! When you arrived Tafi junction, you need to take another motorcycle(around 4 Ghanian Dollars) to get there!
The Monkey was just so cute and if you go there in the morning while they were hungry, they would jumped into your arm and graped the bananas from you. Ahhhhh, I wished I got there earlier:P
And I had been wasting time to drink my Guinness and watched the girl having her hair extension:P
Anyway, it’s a fun day to relax. Until next time. Cheers
