Buabeng Fiema Monkey Sanctuary
Posted on January 13th, 2014

The Buabeng-Fiema Monkey Sanctuary is located in the Nkoranza District in the dry semi-deciduous forest in the transition zone of Ghana. This zone is quickly changing from forest to grassland so the community’s dry semi-deciduous forest is an isolated forest that is surrounded by grassland. The people and their traditional leaders have used ancient taboos to protect this forest which also is home to two endangered species of monkeys – Black and White Colobus monkeys, Colobus polykomos and the Mona monkey, Cercopithecus mona. As well as large members of colourful butterflies and other wildlife.

The Monkey Sanctuary is a contender for my favorite place in Ghana. My passion is animals and I was amazed at how close I was able to get to the monkeys! They ate right out of my hand!! It was incredible and hard to experience anywhere else! You also get a individualized tour where you get to see the surrounding village, Monkey cemetery and the natural habitat of the two kinds of monkeys that reside in the forest!

It's a little tricky getting to the Sanctuary but not impossible! I had only been in Ghana two weeks and was able to make it! I believe I took two tro-tro's and then a taxi to reach the village but transportation is cheap so don't worry! I'd go again and again and again if I could!
