The Bono region is one of Ghana’s sixteen regions. Bono East region and Ahafo region were formed as a result of the splitting of Brong-Ahafo region.
The area was formed after the former Brong-Ahafo region was divided into the Ahafo region and the Bono East region. This was in keeping with a pledge Nana Akuffo Addo made during his 2016 campaign efforts. The newly constituted Ministry of Regional Reorganization and Development, led by Hon. Dan Botwe, was in charge of putting the preparations for the creation of this region into reality. The Brong Ahafo Region, as well as the Brong Ahafo Region Co-ordinating Council, have effectively ceased to exist (BARCC).
As a result, the Bono Regional Co-ordinating Council (BRCC) is a new organization that replaces the Bono Regional Co-ordinating Council (BRCC) in accordance with Article 255 of the 1992 constitution and Article 186 of the Local Governance Act, 2016 (Act 936 as Amended).
The regional capital is Sunyani, widely known as Ghana’s green city. Sunyani is the cleanest capital city in the country and a popular meeting venue since it is situated at the center of Ghana.
Bono Region shares a boundary with Savannah Region in the north, the Ghana-Côte d’Ivoire international border in the west, Bono East in the east, and Ahafo Region in the south.
According to the Ghana statistical service’s census of 2021, it has a population of roughly 1,208,649 people.

Monkeys can be seen dangling from tree limbs and peeling bananas that have been offered to them. The visitor will be able to observe how monkeys transport their young while swinging from the trees.
