When you see the chimps going about their business, the personalities, the family dramas, dominance between the males, etc, you know that your money was well spent. Very entertaining for young and old. Would love to go more often, if only the price p/person was a little cheaper. But well worth the experience. 👌
Serving as the only sanctuary for chimpanzees within South Africa, the place and experience is truly unique. The guides are informative and educate you on chimpanzees, including the lives and journeys of the chimpanzees there. Support them if you’re in the area!
