Ngamba Island

​Ngamba Island chimpanzee sanctuary was founded in 1997 and opened to the public in 1999. Today it is home to some 40 orphaned chimpanzees. These cannot be returned to their natural habitat, so will live out their lives in the 100 acre sanctuary.

Guests can visit on a day trip, observing the chimpanzees at feeding time and enjoying an informative talk from sanctuary staff, or can stay overnight at the small tented camp. As well as providing a safe and secure environment for the chimps, the sanctuary also seeks to educate visitors and local communities about these fascinating animals and emphasising the importance of conserving their fragile forest habitat.
