Visit the Obonu Tem and Se Yo caves which serve as home to many animals, including a colony of bats. The brave will also have the opportunity to go into the caves, follow the sun and emerge at the peak of the hill! These caves were once home to the Shai people’s ancestors and used by their king until the late 19th century. The area was defensible in times of war thanks to the large stone rocks, overhangs and tunnel-like cave openings. Learn about the various artifacts that have been found on this site.
