The park also has over 300 species of birds, making it a birdwatcher’s paradise. Visitors to the park can take guided tours, go on safari drives, or take a nature walk to explore the park’s diverse ecosystem.

The Larabanga Mosque is another notable attraction in the northern part of Ghana. It is located in the small town of Larabanga, near Damongo, in the Northern Region. The mosque is one of the oldest and most revered in West Africa, dating back to the 15th century. Its unique architecture, which features traditional Sudano-Sahelian style and adobe walls, has earned it a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List.

Mystic Waterfalls, also known as the Kintampo Waterfalls, is a beautiful natural wonder located in the Kintampo North Municipality of the Bono East Region. The waterfalls, which are about 70 meters wide and 25 meters high, are fed by the Pumpu River and flow into a cool pool at the bottom. Visitors can swim in the pool, hike the surrounding trails, or just relax and enjoy the stunning views.
