Day 2: Another unique activity available to our overnight visitors is the Caregiver-For-a-Day experience. This program offers visitors the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a chimpanzee caregiver by being caregivers themselves.  As a chimp caregiver, you will get the exciting opportunity to not only view the chimps feeding, but to participate in preparing their food and feeding them. You can assist the staff with any activities happening at the sanctuary that day: medical checkups, research and monitoring, preparing the holding areas for the chimps, and other activities. This is a new program aimed at helping our visitors understand and appreciate what it takes to look after our orphaned cousins on Ngamba Island, as well being a vehicle for raising funds for their well being. The staff will work with you to show you just what is involved in taking care of these animals, how individual they are, and what makes them so special.

You can return to Entebbe by 1pm or 5 Pm depending on your schedule there after. End of the Tour
