In the northern half of Ghana, forest transitions into woodland and grassland savanna. Explore the famous Mole National Park, where elephants, buffalo, warthogs, and baboons roam free. Watch hippos, visit crocodile pools, wander in a sacred monkey sanctuary, or enter bat caves at Buoyem. View a 500-year-old mosque at Laribanaga, or learn from the relics of the northern slave trade at Widnaba.
