The sanctuary is a safe haven for Chimpanzees that have been taken from their natural habitat who has once been misplaced, misused and/or abused. These extraordinarily intelligent Chimpanzees now call this 1000 hectares home. This sanctuary is a place where they can find refuge, tranquility, love and safety.
The sanctuary and their staff is committed to rescue and care for these animals in need. The sanctuary is the first and only one of its kind in South Africa. They also help to bring Chimpanzees closer to humans and thus creating a better understanding and appreciation for the species.
The chimpanzees at the sanctuary were rescued from zoos, circuses, illegal pet trade and medical research facilities to mention but a few.
When you visit the sanctuary, you play a huge part in contributing to their needs.
You will have the opportunity to view the Chimpanzees in a semi-natural habitat from the comfort of a viewing platform. You will be able to see how they interact with one another and how they go about their foraging routines.
