Total waste of money, there were more baboons on the road outside. Couple of zebras, one of which looked very sick. Saw a few antelope from a long way away. Climbed to the supposed royal palace, waste of time. Tour guide was a joke, he...More

Pleasant scenery, nothing else. Six zebras kept in a large fenced compound. One lonely ostrich in another fenced area. Some baboons looking for lunch in the same way they do on the main road. Good views from the rocky outcrop but that was it. Keep...More

I had a great experience driving to the sites with my brother and a guide and hiking a little to the hill tops. Amazing views, beautiful animals and fresh air. It's unpolluted and very natural place although more work needs to be done to upgrade...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

Shai hills is good if you want to see some nature but you don't really want to hike. There are a lot of monkeys right when you enter and than you begin a driven tour. 1. The driver is just a taxi driver they catch-...More

We went to the Shai Hills Resource Reserve on an impromptu visit one Sunday afternoon, so didn't have time for more than a one-hour mini-safari with our own vehicle, accompanied by one of the 24 rangers of the reserve. The reserve offers lots of hiking...More

Great place to be when you want to have some adrenaline adventure as opposed to merely visiting to see baboons and antelope. Oh, there are ostriches and zebras there too, by the way. But the best experience is to ride through the park on mountain...More
