UGANDA: Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Experience

Overview

Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Orphanage

Ngamba Island is found on Lake Victoria, approximately 23 km out of Entebbe. It consists of 100 acres, of which 98 are forested; the rest is kept for the camp, the lodge and all human activities. Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary was created in 1997 by Jane Goodall Institute in cooperation with other conservation organizations with the objective to provide a safe home to orphan chimpanzees’ victims of poaching and therefore displaced from their original forest habitat. This “emergency” project was necessary and it still play an important role in chimpanzee conservation in Uganda. The Sanctuary later on became a private conservation institute with the name Chimpanzee Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation (CSWCT).
