Warm Hospitality of the People of Zabzugu

  6 votes
Zabzugu is the capital town of the Zabzugu Tatale district in Northern Region of Ghana and shares border to with the republic of Togo to the East. The district was carved out of the Eastern Dagbon district in the early 90s.

Zabzugu, is a mix of urban and rural life side by side.
It is a homogenous society, shaped by the hospitality culture of the Dagbon people. About 90% of the population are Dagombas and about 75% of the people are farmers. Yam, cereals (maize, corn, millet) are widely grown in Zabzugu. Food security is generally high in this community.

Favourite spots:
The most favourite sports in Zabzugu in Soccer. Sporting season is usually after harvest, when people have some leasure. Inter-community matches are organized and some times between Zabzugu and Other towns, usually Yendi or Tatale.

What's really great:
I like the hospitality of the people, their very good communal spirit and the typically traditional way of life.

Togo Akwapen ranges, rural Dagbon culture, traditiona farms.

The District Assembly Guest house or family host.

No standard restaurants. Communical Cooking and Eating all the way. No need to care about food. Tooooooooo much foooooood at no cost.

Other recommendations:
Walking, cycling and jogging are safe.
