Our environment is fundamental to who we are and how we function. For a country about the size of Oregon, Ghana’s natural environment is very diverse. Between the sandy seashores of the south and the desert-like Sahel of the north, lies everything from tropical rain-forest to woodlands, and savanna. Students will have a chance to observe, explore, and experience these diverse ecosystems, including a stop at Mole National Park where a walking safari may give them an up close and personal view of African elephants in the wild. The shy Pangolin, (an endangered, scaly anteater), is more illusive.
