The Heritage Caravan has ended its tour of the Northern and Upper West Regions.

Patrons of the Caravan had a nice time at Wechiau in the Upper West Region on Wednesday, where they visited the Hippopotamus Sanctuary.

The Sanctuary is a unique community-based project, protecting and preserving the wildlife and the environment of a 40km stretch of the Black Volta River.

The river is home to one of the two remaining hippopotamus populations in Ghana, and was made a Sanctuary by local chiefs in 1999.

Since then, the project has provided Ghanian and International tourists with a unique eco-travel experience.

The area has a huge diversity of wildlife.

The team also visited the Mole National Park and the Laribanga Mosque.

Prior to visiting the Upper West Region, the Caravan was in Northern Region where the patrons paid homage to the Chief of Tamale at the Dakpema Palace.

The Caravan has so far toured, the Greater Accra, Volta and Ashanti Regions.

The Heritage Caravan on Wednesday departed for the Brong Ahafo after wrapping up its Northern Regional tour.
