Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary -1

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Surrounded by the peaceful waters of Lake Victoria, Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is home to 52 orphaned chimpanzees rescued from across East Africa and just a few accidental births. Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (Chimpanzee Trust), an NGO, is responsible for all aspects of the sanctuary. Deeply committed to and involved in both field conservation and community education, we work closely with the Ugandan government and wildlife authorities. We offer both day Trips (Half and Full day) and overnight at Ngamba Ecolodge to the sanctuary which provides an exceptional opportunity to closely observe these fascinating great apes in our unique setting.

Visiting Ngamba Island Sanctuary

Visiting Ngamba Island Chimpazee Sanctuary is an extraordinary experience you will never forget. If you are visiting Uganda, known as the Pearl of Africa, this is not to be missed. Considered one of the leading primate sanctuaries in Africa, you will receive personal attention from an internationally trained staff and observe the 52 chimpanzee residents up close & personal from a raised viewing platform that provides a full view of their behavior and interactions.

We offer several different tours depending on your budget and interests. If you are interested in volunteering and possibly staying for a longer period of time.
