About Ngamba Island excursion
This Island is a small forested Island located in Lake Victoria the largest fresh water lake in Africa. This Chimpanzee sanctuary is where all rescued Chimpanzees are being taken care of. Chimpanzees live in communities in most forests of Uganda-Africa. Many animal traffickers do target primates including Chimpanzees, because of this; they are endangered and need our protection and care. Due to the fact that you can never tell where a given Chimp came from after rescue, they cannot be taken back to their natural habitat but to Ngamba Island. Cruise with our Ngamba Island Boat excursion to the Island and study; appreciate how to conserve our closed cousins the Chimpanzees.
