African Dream Hotel

Guesthouse in Tamale

Set in pretty landscaped gardens complete with wandering chickens, African Dream offers charming, if slightly careworn, rooms as well as a decent restaurant and speedy wi-fi. The location, some 10km out of town, won't be for everyone, but friendly owner Abu Prince offers pick-ups and drop-offs from town and the airport. He can also arrange tours to Mole National Park and northern Ghana.

At the time of research it was building further rooms in large circular huts in the garden.
