This 1 day Ngamba Chimpanzee viewing tour starts and ends in Entebbe but we can have clients picked up from as far as Kampala on the day of the visit to the Chimpanzee Sanctuary on Ngamba Island located on Lake Victoria. There are daily boat transfers to and from the Chimpanzee Sanctuary and the more the number of tourists available on a particular day the cheaper it is.
Take a boat cruise out on Lake Victoria to Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary and have a chance to view chimpanzees feeding. You will also be treated to sights of monitor lizards, birds, and photographic opportunities. There are arrangements for both half and full day trips and boats leave at either 9:00am or 12:45pm respectively.
Upon arrival at the sanctuary, you will be directed to the visitors’ center where you will assemble for an introduction to the project, its history, residents and their plight. On each of the two types of day visits (half day and full day), you will receive an educational orientation by a chimpanzee caregiver and view a feeding of the chimpanzees (full day visitors will view 2 feedings) from the visitors’ raised platform area along the edge of the sanctuary fence.
Packed lunches and drinks to the island have been suspended, prompted by the difficulty of controlling the litter associated with the personal items; the ban seeks to enforce Chimpanzee Trust’s Environmental Management Policy and System, which has been in place since the founding of Ngamba Island Sanctuary. However the Sanctuary has a well-stocked bar and restaurant where you can enjoy a sumptuous lunch.
We encourage you to book your trip in advance to ensure availability and pricing of this tour to avoid late inconveniences.
