Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is home to 50 chimpanzees. 45 chimps were brought to this island after rescue from bushmeat trade and illegal pet trade founded in 1998. 5 chimps have been born on the island with the latest baby girl born to Natasha, the world’s most intelligent chimpanzee. 

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary offers 95 acres of natural forest where the chimps roam and forage daily. Their diet is supplemented by food from caregivers and the chimpanzees are free to spend a night in the forest or return to their night time enclosures and have an evening meal. 

Ngamba Island is part of the Koome group of islands located in Lake Victoria approximately 23km southeast of Entebbe. The forested acres that total to 95 are separated from the human camp by an electric fence.
