It boarders two traditional areas of the Region, the Kumawu and Kwamang traditional areas.
The Kogyae Strict Nature Reserve lies in the Eastern Region of Ghana which falls in the forest zone. The area stretches along the Afram Plains of Ghana, a wide expanse of flat arable land. The geographical location of the area places it in the transitional zone, separating the southern forest from the northern savanna regions.
The Kogyae Strict Nature Reserve is a natural preservation area set up to protect the ecology, check the downward drift of the savanna grassland and to promote scientific research, particularly on how nature revitalizes itself after major disasters.
Historically, the area constitutes the site where the two traditional areas, Kumawu and Kwamang, by treaty joined forces to fight invading enemies in one of their last victorious tribal wars.
The area therefore is held as a sacred place for both traditional areas and each lays claim to it. The Nature Reserve is part of the Afram Plains.
