Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary

Inquisitive Monkey at Tafi Atome

Tafi Atome has become a conservation area for various species of monkey including the Mona and Patas. The monkeys are considered gods and are revered by the local community and protected by tradition.

The monkeys can be seen early morning within the village as they search the streets looking for food, later in the day they tend to head for the forests surrounding the villages and guides may be needed to help locate them.

A visitor centre in the village can provide further information and arrange tours.
