3 Days Ngamba Chimpanzee Tracking

Ngamba Chimpanzee Sanctuary is an island sanctuary in Uganda committed to the care of orphaned chimpanzees who were rescued by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. It’s unlikely that many of the chimpanzees saved from poachers would be able to return to their native environment.
The sanctuary is managed by a non-profit organisation, the Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT). Six organisations come together as CSWCT, a collaboration dedicated to the conservation and well-being of wildlife. The Trustees are:

Ngamba Island was gazetted in October 1998. The objective was to house and tend to chimpanzees rescued from different parts of East Africa.

Ngamba Island is 100 acres of rainforest situated on Lake Victoria, approximately 27 kilometres by boat southeast of the city of Entebbe, near the Equator in Lake Victoria, Uganda. The island upholds a rich diversity of natural wildlife and provides a variety of natural foods for chimpanzees. This project’s environmentally friendly setup includes composting toilets, rainwater collection, suitable waste management systems, and solar energy for hot water and electricity.

The sanctuary is open year-round to visitors who pay a nominal entrance fee to view one or both of the chimpanzee feedings. Day and overnight visits (staying in luxury tents) are available.

Day 1: Transfer to Ngamba Island

Pick up from your hotel in Kampala in the morning to Entebbe. After the chimpanzees’ briefing, board a speedboat from the pier to Ngamba Islands. When you arrive, lunch will be provided while you take in the island’s tranquillity. The climax of the day will be watching the chimpanzees from the visitors’ platform as they feed freely. Dine and stay overnight on the island.

Day 2: Forest walk and village tour

After breakfast, in essence, we set out for a forest walk along with the chimpanzees. (Only those with medical inoculations are advised.) The walk will get you closer to these primates. Get back in time for lunch. Then, we take a boat tour to the neighbouring fishing villages. Afterwards, dine and stay overnight at the island

Day 3: Back to Kampala

Soon after breakfast, we do a second forest walk. Meanwhile, our boat will cruise back to the mainland. At this point, our vehicle will take us back to Kampala for dinner and overnight.

Options are, of course, many and varied, and in many cases, we can be flexible about the itinerary for accommodation facilities and the extension of the safari destinations.
