Tafi Atome Monkey Home
Tafi Atome is a traditional conservation area backed by statutory enforcement in co-operation with local communities. Home to the Mona and Patas monkeys Tafi Atome is one of the most well run ecotourism sites in Ghana.
Here, the indigenous people live and cohabite with monkeys they refer to as ancestors. Once viewed as sacred, the mona and petas monkeys have become accustomed with the people and lives with them.
Show off a banana, and you will see these guys coming to pick it from your hands. Bananas are provided as part of your entrance fee, and if the monkeys are willing they will take them directly from your hands.
You will get excellent guided tours to the forest, beginning with an obligatory morning stop to see the monkeys.
Tafi Atome about 230km Northeast of Accra is on the Accra-Hohoe road. A branch 10km west of Logba leads to the home of monkeys. From Ho go to the main trotro station and ask for Tafi Atome lorry.
You’ll likely board a Hohoe bound car, and disembark near the halfway point at Logba Alekpeti
