Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary provides a safe home to orphaned chimps who have been rescued from various areas throughout Uganda, and are unable to return to the wild. The chimpanzees are free to roam the island and live life out of harm's way.

Ngamba is located in Lake Victoria, and visitors have an opportunity to view the twice-daily feeding sessions and explore the island, which is also home to over 120 species of birds and 50,000 fruit bats, otters, and monitor lizards. 

The island is 404.605 square metres and is largely forested, with pockets of grassland. There is a tented camp for overnight stays, ideal for visitors wanting to learn more about the sanctuary’s aims and spend more time with the chimps.
