3 Day luxury Ngamba Island Chimpanzee safari

PrintThis 3 day luxury Ngamba Island Chimp sanctuary tour in Uganda starts and ends in Entebbe. This tour takes you through the beautiful evergreen Ngamba Island.

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is found 23 Kilometers off shore from Lake Victoria at Entebbe. It is located on a beautiful forested island and is home to approximately 40 chimpanzees rescued from poachers and other forms of private captivity. The semi-wild environment allows for close viewing of the animals in their natural habitat. Optional extra: a day’s forest walks with the mischievous chimps as they play in the forest (full or half day on payment of supplement at time of booking).
The Sanctuary was set up by a group of concerned organizations including Uganda Wildlife Education Centre and Jane Goodall Institute, to offer a facility for over 40 orphaned chimpanzees to co-habitat in a near-natural environment.
