Nini Suhien National Park and Ankasa Resources Reserve are twin Wildlife Protected Areas that are located in the wet evergreen forest area of the Western Region of Ghana. These areas are so rich in biodiversity that about 300 species of plants have been recorded in a single hectare. The areas are largely unexplored but 43 mammal species including the bongo, forest elephant, 10 primate species including the endangered Dina monkey and the West African chimpanzee have been recorded. Bird fauna is also rich. The reserves offer very good example of the west evergreen forest to the prospective tourist.
The reserve is not yet developed for large-scale tourism. For light tourism overnight facility is available at Elubo, which is, only 10 minutes drive away from the reserve. Tourists can only go on foot safaris. Accra to Elubo is by a 325km first class international road.
It's not safe to drink tap water in Ghana. In fact, many in Ghana still lack access to clean drinking water and safe sanitation. ... For many Ghanaians in rural areas, and for those without the ability to purchase bottled or bagged water, access to potable water is still an issue.
