Thank you so much Dean ,we really enjoyed your tour, it was so informative with a little humor. What an amazing place, the Chimps are so full of character and melted our hearts. We will be back for sure!
The place is doing a wonderful job.This is a return visit,and we always learn something new.The guides are good and very informative.

A very worthwhile visit as a day out from South African wildlife spotting in the Kruger Park. The guides were knowledgable and certainly cared about the chimpanzees.
Most of the chimps (except for the 2 born in the sanctuary) had come from difficult previous locations,...More

Hi Chris - Apologies for this late response - I have just seen the query now. In South Africa (Southern Hemisphere) our winters are June-August. This is a lovely time of year in the Lowveld (the part of the country where the Kruger Park and Chimp Eden are) because it is cooler, although not cold (sometimes quite chilly at night and early mornings). Many people prefer to visit the Kruger Park during these winter months as the bush is not so dense, the grass is shorter, the days are dry and sunny with lovely blue skies and bleached dry veld (it is our dry season) so visibility is better for spotting wildlife. That said, summers (December-Feb) are VERY hot, but the bush is in glorious, in full leaf and there are lots of young animals (many species give birth in Spring, around September) with wonderful thunderstorms as only Africa can deliver. I personally love Lowveld summers, but visitors might find it too hot; the mosquitoes are in full hum and, since this is peak holiday time in South Africa, the Park is usually fully booked and, basically, full of people. Tough choice... Hope this has helped!
