Located 23km southeast of Entebbe in Lake Victoria, Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, and Ngamba Island is one of the 84 Islands that are located in Ssese Islands. Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary was established in October 1998 to care for orphaned chimpanzees that have been rescued by the Uganda Wildlife Authority. Many of the chimpanzees were rescued from poachers and are unlikely to survive reintroduction to the wild.
Ngamba Island is 100 acres (approximately 40 hectares) of rain forest situated a short boat ride (23 km) away from Entebbe, near the Equator in Lake Victoria. It supports a rich diversity of natural wildlife and provides a variety of natural foods for the chimpanzees.
The island is set up as an Eco-friendly project with compost toilets, rainwater collection, proper waste management practices and solar energy for electricity and hot water.
The sanctuary is open all year round to visitors who pay a nominal entrance fee to view one or both of the chimpanzee feedings. Day and overnight visits (staying in luxury tents) are available at 88 Per Person just Boat Ride.
