There is a Tamale to Wa bus that stops in Larabanga, the gateway to Mole National Park. Since the roads are terrible and the passenger traffic impossible to predict, it's a good idea to take the Mole to Tamale Bus out first thing in the morning. There's a stand in Larabanga that will serve safely cooked food. The arrival of the bus took so long that at one point we were tempted to hitch a ride with a transport truck. Don't do this. The bus WILL arrive. Prepare for body to body contact during the 4 hour ride from Larabanga to Wa, as the by the time it arrives in Larabanga, the bus will be most likely full. The bus is pretty basic in terms of comfort and mechanical efficiency, so prepare for a rough ride. However, the journey is not without its scenic benefits. Besides the natural scenery and occasional spotting of deer and monkeys, the bus takes a stop at a market. Again, I can't recall the cost. It was so low that we just paid, and climbed aboard.
