This image was shot in Buoyem, which is a small village in the  Brong Ahafo region of Ghana. Buoyem(literally translates to belly of the rocks. Historically, in 1722, the famous Ashanti Empire invaded the Bonos(people from the brong ahafo region of present day Ghana) in the bono/ashanti war an captured their king and queen. Due to its myriad of rocks, hills and caves, some royals, took the ancestral stool(A symbol that binds and connect the people to their ancestors) and hid themselves within these bat caves in the Mprisi rain-forest also found within the same location for safety. Most of the caves in the area are home to  thousands of bats presently.

Bui National park is the third largest national park in Ghana, extending on either sides of the black Volta river and situated between the northern and Brong- Ahafo regions. It used to support the massive population of hippos until part of it became the site for the hydro-electric dam construction from 2009 thereby losing most of its hippo population as well as some of its terrestrial mammals to flooding and submergence of parts of the land.
