3 Day Ngamba chimps

NGAMBA CHIMPANZEE ISLAND TOUR: CHIMPS ON NGAMBA ISLAND IN LAKE VICTORIA (4 Days)
(Tour Code UG8)

There are daily boat cruises to Ngamba Chimpanzee Island from Entebbe Mainland. You can visit the Island for half a day (by speed boat) or take the traditional motorised canoe for a day in Lake Victoria to the Island. Two main tourist activities are offered: chimp viewing from a raised wooden platform; or a walk to the chimp forest for closer contact with the legendary primates. Click here for details of all Ngamba Island activities. Further below is our three-day proposed tour to the Chimpanzee Island Sanctuary. This tour visits Ngamba chimpanzee sanctuary on Lake Victoria. Situated 23km off shore from Entebbe, the Sanctuary was set up by a group of concerned organisations including Uganda Wildlife Education Centre and Jane Goodall Institute among others, to offer a facility for now over 50 orphaned chimpanzees to co-habitat in a natural environment. From Entebbe there are regular trips to the Chimp Island. Travelling is either by a modified traditional Ssese canoe sitting up to 25 participants, or a faster motor boat sitting 8 persons. The beautifully forested tropical island is almost 100 acres in size and boasts over 50 different types of vegetation that the chimps utilize.

This safari starts from Entebbe [The Bwindi gorilla permit is included in the safari cost]. For those who wish to visit the three natural-habitat gorilla countries of the world Bwindi and Mgahinga in Uganda, Parc National des Volcans in Rwanda, and Virunga Park in Congo, which is on the other side of the misty Virungas please contact us. Visitors do this tour in express. It is the only tour activity that they do, in a minimum of 4 days by road. Tour may also be done in 2 or 3 days by air, this however requires advance preparations and booking. Note that the journey to Bwindi-South or Congo for gorilla tracking is a long one, about 500km on bitumen-surface and also on rough terrain, taking the traveller at least 9 hours from Entebbe to the gorilla park.
