Monkey Island


This small archipelago is home to chimpanzees that were evacuated from a hepatitis research lab during the war. Enquire in town about the most up-to-date options for viewing the island and chimps from a canoe (US$5 to US$10) – it can be hit or miss, but there will usually be someone around who can take you.

Don't get too close; these chimps know how to throw mangoes.
