Ngamba Island is part of the Koome group of islands located on Lake Victoria 23km south of Entebbe, Uganda. It consists of approximately 100 acres, 98 of which are forested for the chimpanzees and separated from the visitors’ area by an electric fence. Ngamba Island was officially opened to visitors in October 1999 and is currently home to 40 orphaned chimpanzees, alm ...ost half of which have been confiscated and brought to the island since its opening. This small camp comprises just four tents, all en suite, on wooden platforms with private decks overlooking Lake Victoria. The camp has been designed within strict ecological guidelines of CSWCT, with due care to the fragile nature of the environment, lighting is solar. You can help support this project by visiting. The entrance and activity fees paid goes directly towards helping cover the recurring costs of the island sanctuary and ensuring the well being of the chimpanzees.
