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

Ombo Mountain

Ombo Mountain is situated at the foot of Ombo Village in Nadowli-Kaleo. It was used as a refuge for people fleeing from the notorious slave raiders Samori and Babatu. According to an elder, the mountain emerged from a river that once occupied the area. It is said that some of the slaves who had taken shelter in the mountain were buried alive when it emerged.
