"Buoyem, in a green valley" Buoyem by Pieter11

Buoyem Travel Guide: 6 reviews and 12 photos

Very close to the small city of Techiman, in the Brong Ahafo Region in central Ghana, you will find the small but very diverse village of Buoyem. The local inhabitants have started several eco-tourism activities, which make visit to this village worth the effort, no matter how long you want to spend there.

The main attraction in the village are the bat caves where over 20.000 fruit bats lives. You can visit these caves during an adventurous hike. When you add an extra day you can even do an extra long hike through the region, and if you only have a few hours to spend then there are still some great thing to see very close to the village.
