The reserve is home to a vast array of wildlife, Baboons, green monkeys, antelopes, zebras, mammals, reptiles and over 172 bird species have been identified in the reserve. 

It’s also home to many traditional communities who rely on it for their livelihoods. The best time for wildlife viewing is early in the morning. The morning visit may include sightings of Kob antelope, bushbuck, or monkeys, although the monkeys here are not habituated like at Tafi Atome or Boabeng-Fiema. The baboon troop at the front gate can be very amusing but be warned these are dangerous animals and they love to snatch your unattended personal belongings.
