This small sanctuary of 4.4km2 was established in 1974 to help the local communities protect the resident black and white Colobus and Mona monkeys which are important to their cultural belief.

The monkeys are habituated to humans and large groups are seen easily in the forest and within Boabeng village itself. The butterfly fauna is unusually rich.


This 1,821km2 park, gazetted in 1971, covers the catchment of the Black Volta River. The vegetation is typical savannah woodland with gallery forest along river courses.

It is particularly notable for the resident hippo population in the Black Volta River though a number of primates and antelope species are present along with a great variety of birds.
