To the North a dusty foot philosopher was born
To the South as you go, the colder the weather
To the West is a brown leaf - wait is that a horn?
To the East is a place to get back together

I'm with a group of fellow ghosts hanging out at the park. Where and what am I?

Standing on the shoulders of giants @deep thought, @El-Guest, and @GarethMcCaughan, the final answer is:

I am a lemur and I'm quite literally at Lemurs' Park on Madagascar

To the East is a place to get back together

réunion, an island east of madagascar

To the South as you go, the colder the weather

nothing but sea to the south of madagascar, until you get to antarctica

To the North a dusty foot philosopher was born

[deleted my wrong guess, @El-Guest got this one]: to the north is Somalia, where K'Naan is from.

To the West is a brown leaf - wait is that a horn?

[deleted my wrong guess, @StoneGiant got this one]: It is the brown leaf chameleon on the east side of Madagascar.

I'm with a group of fellow ghosts hanging out at the park. Where and what am I?

[deleted my wrong guess, @GarethMcCaughan got this one]: Madagascar is famous for lemurs. Their name comes from a latin word for spirits of the dead.

But more specifically,

We're in a park... which one? Well, here is where the brown leaf is found, and here is a map of the national parks of Madagascar (in yellow). The brown leaf is basically on the east coast, but it's said to be to the west of our park, so... it looks like Masoala National Park on that bit sticking out on the northeast.

    $\begingroup$ The ghosts are a nice bit of etymology. @deepthought you will not go far wrong by considering what the place in question is famous for. $\endgroup$ – Gareth McCaughan Sep 26 '18 at 21:31

    $\begingroup$ The brown leaf is probably a chameleon from the east side of Madagascar. See this Wikipedia article for details. Since the brown leaf is west, that would put us on the east coast. Probably the city of Mohanoro or Mananjary? $\endgroup$ – StoneGiant Sep 26 '18 at 22:34

    $\begingroup$ @StoneGiant good catch! - though it might not be a city at all, since the OP mentions a park $\endgroup$ – deep thought Sep 26 '18 at 22:39

    $\begingroup$ r13(Enabznsnan Angvbany Cnex) then? I mean, r13(Zbmnzovdhr) is pretty big. You could draw a line from it to the eastern island through just about any of the national parks. But, I'm probably just being dumb. $\endgroup$ – StoneGiant Sep 26 '18 at 23:08
