Boabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary



A popular stop between Kumasi and Mole National Park, this community-run sanctuary is named after the two villages that lie within it, both of which regard monkeys to be so sacred that the villagers hold funerals for them when they die. Large numbers of mona monkeys scamper around the village huts, oblivious to the proximity of humans, and the more strictly arboreal black-and-white colobus monkey is often observed swinging between the trees. It is also a rewarding spot for bird-watchers.
