Chimpanzees are amazing animals and globally this species has become synonymous with activist Jane Goodall’s name, as their endangered status continues to become more urgent as a result of the bushmeat trade and the selling of exotic species as pets.
Chimp Eden is a 1000 hectare Jane Goodall Institute run sanctuary for Chimps – a beautiful, safe place where chimps can live in their natural environment. It also offers visitors a very special opportunity to observe these amazing, intelligent and loving animals, and to learn more about them.
