1-day Ngamba Island Chimpanzee tour

Ngamba Chimp Island is located in the Bay of Lake Victoria in Uganda. It is home to over 100 rescued chimpanzees, who are cared for by the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary and monitored by the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Project. The project works to protect the endangered chimpanzees, while also providing an educational experience to visitors. Visitors are able to observe chimpanzees as they feed, play, and interact with each other while learning about their behaviour and social dynamics. Visitors also receive an in-depth look at the sanctuary’s conservation efforts, and how they are working to protect the chimpanzees and their habitat.

When is the best time to go on the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee trip

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is open all year round, however, the best time to visit is during the dry season. From late May to early October, the weather is much drier, allowing for easier access and more comfortable conditions for visitors. During this period, the wildlife is more active and the vegetation is lush and green.

Morning viewing from 9.00 am to 1.00 pm
Afternoon viewing from 12.45 pm to 5.00 pm
