Another geo-exciting place to get most out of your trip to northern Ghana is this living escarpment. Located few kilometers from Nalerigu, the scarp is the tallest natural scarp in Africa.
This escarp forms the elevated northern boundary of the Volta river basin and the eastern section of a plateau of Wan a Mamprusi.
On an elevation of 1000-1500 feet on the scarp, you will have an inspiring view of most part of Northern Gegion on a clear weather.
Closer than you may think, lies the Gambaga scarp forest reserve along the Walewale-Gambaga-Nalerigu road. This reserve is beautifully mixed Guinea Savanna Woodland to Sudan Savanna vegetation with intriguing tree reaching a height of 10-12m.
Spot some wonderful residence birds species such as bearded barbet, Senegal parrot, and the endemic Gambaga flycatcher.
How to get there
