|Location||Méfou-et-Afamba, Centre Region, Cameroon|
Mefou National Park (French: Parc de la Méfou), also known as Mefou Wildlife Sanctuary and Mfou Reserve, is a national park and zoo in the forested area of Mfou in Cameroon. Within it, Mefou Primate Park is used as a shelter for primates that are native to Africa: the monkey, chimpanzee and gorilla.
Ape Action Africa established the sanctuary to house primates which were housed at the Mvog-Betsi Zoo at Yaoundé. Eventually, it would act to protect primates that were affected by illegal pet and bushmeat trades in the country.
