Welcome to my Disney's Tarzan Walkthrough/FAQ. This is a comprehensive list of every single TARZAN letter and monkey sketch you can find within the game.
While I will not detail the location of every single coin, locating these collectibles will more than likely help you find 100% of the coins in each level.
Also included is a picture gallery to show their onscreen positions, to make finding them that bit easier for you wonderful gamers out there.
Note - In order to achieve a perfect score, you must collect every coin in each level, every TARZAN letter and every monkey sketch.
