Gola Forest Reserve
The Gola Forest is a remnant of a once vast rainforest that stretched across West Africa - commonly referred to by conservationists and scientists as the Upper Guinea Forest. This forest type is one of the Global 25 Biological diversity hotspots.
The Gola Forest covers a 110km stretch of land on the international border with Liberia. It is within the seven Gola Forest chiefdoms of Malema, Gaura, Koya, Nomo, Tunkia, Barrie and Makpele –spread across Kailahun, Kenema and Pujehun Districts. The forest is bordered on the East by the Mano river, which also marks the international border with Liberia and on the west by the Moa river and Tiwai Island.
Once we’ve set up camp you’ll be able to head off on guided wildlife walks – or hike one of the trails that criss-cross the reserve to take in the sights and sounds of the forest ecosystem. We will spend 2 nights here with one full day for activities.
