    At this reserve you will find mixed coastal savanna, dry forest, and the fauna to which these habitats are home. Monkeys (baboons and Cercopithecus), bushbucks, royal antelopes, and 89 recorded bird species, including ground hornbills, are among the wildlife seen here. Large, bat-filled caves are also on the reserve. It is best to tour the reserve in a four-wheel drive vehicle, which you must provide, but you may also enter on foot. Remember that during the rainy season the grasses are very high and conceal the wildlife well. If you didn’t see any herds of baboons inside the park, it’s because they are probably outside the park, sitting by the side of the main road to Akosombo- you will be sure to see them there!
