Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctury

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctury

The Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust of Ngamba Island is located 23km off the shores of Lake Victoria from Entebbe.

Ngamba Island is almost 100 acres in area and hosts over 50 different types of vegetation that Chimps eat in addition to the supplementary feeding provided by the sanctuary. The island is a safe haven for rescued orphaned chimpanzees.

It is of scientific record that chimpanzees are our closest relatives sharing about 98.5% of human’s DNA. Ngamba Island is home to 49 rescued Chimpanzees.

The Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary safari is one of the shortest chimpanzee trekking safaris in Uganda. Tracking chimpanzees is so rewarding since it provides a great adventure experience of meeting our closest relatives.

Ngamba island is a designated destination for rescuing the endangered chimps, including orphans, those neglected by mothers, rescued from poachers, etc. A visit to this sanctuary is an indirect support to the rescue of these endangered apes and all proceeds from tours go to fund the activities of the sanctuary. Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary offers a unique opportunity for close viewing of chimpanzees in their natural habitat. Pre-arranged supplementary feeding times which are 11.00 am & 3.00 pm every day tend to bring the chimpanzees to within meters of the raised walkway specially designed for easy viewing and provide excellent photography opportunities.
