As part of the work at The Nubuke Foundation Centre for Clay and Textiles in WA, we visited eleven (11) sites in Nadowli, 3 in Nandom, and 6 in Wa. We documented them to create a map of these sites as Tourist destinations and for developing other multimedia features based on the history and culture of these towns.

The sites we visited are:

Sankana Caves
Ombo Mountains
The Falantan Anthills
Duong Bone Setting Clinic
Paala Golo Pie
George Zangnaah The Gure Porcupine Sanctuary

The Royal Mausoleum
St. Theresa’s Minor Basilica
Babile Market
The Pakor Tang
Wa Naa's Palace
George E. Ferguson Tomb
Nakore Mosque
Weichau Community Hippo Sanctuary
Wa Market

George E. Ferguson Tomb

George E. Ferguson (1886-1897), a native of Anomabu in the now Central region of Ghana, was the first British official to reach Wa. He subsequently signed two trade treaties with the Wa Naa, the overlord of the Waala kingdom. His work led to the formal colonisation of the northern regions of Ghana. Ferguson was killed near Wa by the Mande warlord and slave raider Samory, a notorious slave raider. His mortal remains are buried in Wa.
