Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Tour Experience

1 Day


Ngamba island chimpanzee sanctuary is located on Lake Victoria and it’s a home to more than 50 chimps rescued from across Uganda. The chimpanzee trust, a Ugandan based nonprofit manages the sanctuary and was established in 1998 for the care and welfare of the sanctuary. Their mission today has expanded to also promote chimpanzee conservation and wildlife management for sustainable development. The island is entirely dedicated to the chimpanzee with 95 acres of open forest habitat available to the chimps every day. They have the freedom to stay or return to large enclosures at night where they receive extra food and hay to build their nests.

The island is found at a distance of about 240 km from Entebbe and can only be reached by boat. The boat takes about 40 minutes to reach the island.
