The Violet Turaco (Musophaga violacea) is a large turaco, a group of African near-passerines. It is a resident breeder in the forests of tropical west Africa. It lays two eggs in a tree platform nest.

These are unmistakable birds, although often inconspicuous in the treetops. They are 45cm long, including a long tail. Their plumage is glossy violet except for the thick red bill, yellow forehead and chestnut crown. In flight, Violet Turaco's crimson primary flight feathers contrast with the violet plumage.

This species is a common breeder in climax forest with plentiful tall trees. It feeds on fruit, especially figs, and some seeds.

Violet Turaco has a loud cooroo-cooroo call.
