Do you love primates? Uganda is one of the top destinations where primate safaris can be done in Africa. If you have little time and you are in Kampala or Entebbe, the Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary is the place to be. If you are on short stay in entebbe town you stand the best chance to experience the chimpanzee in the Ngamba island, a project run by the Jane Goodall Institute.

Lilly Ajarova, the executive director of CSWCT, said Ngamba highlands houses rescued chimpanzees from areas that they were endangered. She cited West Africa, where the chimpanzee is already extinct in four states.

“Most of their mothers were killed and were brought as babies. Some were brought back from Europe after being traced back to Uganda. There has to be a deliberate move to see they continue surviving,” said Ajarova.

The sanctuary receives 4,000 international tourists annually. “It is a destination promoting Uganda because tourists include a lot of other destinations,” said Ajarova.

She explained that a monitoring system has been instituted to check any negative drastic effect of the chopper on the chimpanzees, although the test flight showed there is none so far.

Getting There

You can travel to the island by a speed boat that you can find at the Entebbe Pier and reach the island in about 1 hour.
