Not so much for the animals here. Plenty of baboons in the reception area and they are friendly enough to get close to people. Harmless though. A few zebras and ostrich doesn’t entice much. Best to have your own 4x4. A guide will follow you...More

We were a little doubtful about this place. From Accra is a bit far (tro tro from madina to achiaman, then another one to Doryamu, dropping at shai hills). We paid 70 cedis for 3 hours of guided tour (I strongly suggest not to take...More

The hills and terrain of Shai Hills is a wonderful glimpse into "natural" Africa. Much tribal history is associated with this area, and one can explore much of that while here. The reserved is breeding ostriches and zebras, which are kept in fenced areas. The...More
