This landscape of Tongo-Tengzuk consists of balancing rock formations and many sacred Talensi ancestral shrines lying at the foot of a chain of hills. The hidden Hyena Caves were where the local chief took refuge and commanded his forces against the British during their attempts to take over the area around the year 1911.
The town of Tengzuk where the landscape is situated is about 15 km southeast of Bolgatanga in the Upper-East Region of Ghana. A tour includes visits to a model home, hills, caves, the Chief’s house, and a shrine.
If you like harvest festivals, every year in late October the Talensi people hold the Boar Dam festival, to celebrate the harvest.
