The Gola National Forest is the new name for the Lofa-Mano National Park: a great dash of primaeval rainforest that sprawls out along the northern border of the country with Sierra Leone.
One of the densest remaining tracts of Upper Guinean woodland in the region, the area has everything you’d expect of a real West African wilderness.
Yep, you can expect verdant canopies and seemingly endless stretches of colossal tree trunks and boughs, hidden fern fields where exotic dragonflies flit between the flowers, swinging chimpanzees, rare pygmy hippopotamus – the list goes on!
