I visited several nature parks in Ghana. In the south I saw Kakum National Park, the Bobiri Forest and Butterfly reserve, the Wli Waterfalls, the Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary, and the Shai Hills Game Reserve, in the center I visited the Boabeng Fiema Monkey Sanctuary and the Mole National Park, and in the northern parts I saw the Wechiau Community Hippo Sanctuary, and the Gbelle Resource Reserve. Along the Volta River I saw some birds.
