Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary is traditional sacred grove conservation established in 1996 under the direction of a Peace Corps Volunteer as a community-based ecotourism project. Located 43 km south of Hohoe. From the main Ho-Hohoe road at Logba Alekpeti, turn at the Monkey Sanctuary sign onto the dirt road for 5 km to the visitor center. Tafi Atome is the home of Mona and Patas monkeys. For the past 200 years, the Mona monkeys inhabiting the tropical forest surrounding the small village of Tafi-Atome have been protected because it was believed they were messengers to the gods.
The playful monkeys are wild but often come down very close to visitors. Monkeys are generally out any time of day except during November through January, when they leave the village forest to forage for food from roughly 6:00-8:00 am and 3:30-6:00 pm.
