Day nine of the Ghana road trip: we head to Nkoranza for some monkey business.
Stanley picked me up around 8:00 am. Today we were going to the Boabeng-Fiema monkey sanctuary near Nkoranza and then to Adanwomase, a kente weaving village near Kumasi.
First we stopped at a gas station. While waiting, I noticed I had a few admirers checking me out.
In less than 30 minutes, we were seeing signs pointing the way to the monkey sanctuary. This sign shows the two types of monkeys most common in this area: mona (left) and colobus (right).
We stopped at the Boabeng-Fiema visitor’s center to pay the fee. There are also toilets there for visitors. I expected latrines but was surprised to find clean, well maintained flush toilets. There was also a water pump there where villagers could get water.
I saw my first monkey as we left the visitor’s center office.
