Tour Details

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, is an island sanctuary in Uganda, dedicated to the care of orphaned chimpanzees, that have been rescued by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Many of the chimpanzees were rescued from illegal pet and bushmeat trade and are unlikely to survive reintroduction to the wild.

The island was founded in 1998. It offers 95 acres of natural forest where the chimps roam and forage daily. The sanctuary is open all year round to visitors who pay a nominal entrance fee to view to observe the feeding of the chimps from a viewing platform. Day and overnight visits (staying in luxury tents) are available.

Highlights: 

  • Chimpanzee viewing & Feeding
  • Challenge the chimp critical thinking
  • Chimp nest preparation
