Visit a chimpanzee sanctuary and get close to the rescued animals at Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage. Founded in 1983 when the owner rescued a badly injured infant chimpanzee and nurtured it back to health--establishing a tradition still maintained today--the estate now houses over 120 chimpanzees. The orphanage also serves as a home to baboons, vervet monkeys, and some birds. Watch the daily routine of caring for the animals with feeding and maintaining the habitats serving as important parts of the process. If you want to extend your stay, you can find accommodations on site and nearby. Plan to see Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage and other attractions that appeal to you using our Chingola day trip site.
