Chimpanzee tracking in Uganda Trip overview

Ngamba Island well known for habituating chimpanzees in Uganda therefore it’s good for tours to do with chimpanzee trekking in Uganda, the Ngamba island sanctuary is located on Lake Victoria Africa’s largest lake 23km south of Entebbe in Uganda. It consists of approximately 100 acres, 98 acres are forested and gazetted for Chimpanzee habituation. Ngamba Island was officially opened to visitors in October 1999 and is currently home to 42 orphanage chimpanzees, 22 of which have been confiscated and brought to the island since its opening. The sanctuary is run by Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT), who provide these orphaned chimpanzee with a secure home to live out their lives, since a return to their natural habitat is not currently possible. Ngamba Island aims to educate visitors and local communities about this remarkable species and the importance of conserving their fragile forest habitat. The entrance and activities fees paid go directly towards helping to cover the costs of ensuring the well being of the chimpanzees at the sanctuary hence promote chimpanzee tracking in Uganda.
