CHIMPANZEE SANCTUARY


Located on Lake Victoria, this small island is a refuge for orphaned and abused chimpanzees. They live together in a protected environment until one day, hopefully, they can return to the wild.


SO MANY PERSONALITIES


The colony is full of individuals with their own unique personalities. It is fantastic to watch them interact and look after each other.

STUPID HAT


OK. The hat was a big mistake. It did it’s job right here on the Equator and was then given away.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:WILDLIFE CLOSE UP
  • Cons:IT IS NOT CHEAP
  • In a nutshell:A RARE VIEW OF THE WILD AND YOUR MONEY HELPS

    Great experiences youve had here - you look like you couldve shot out off the back of the boat back over the equator again tho! Good to know people care.
