Although it was an interesting trip, the facilities are old and the food was absolutely terrible. Rather plan your trip to eat elsewhere, but do not miss the sanctuary - it was truly an experience!

This was a fantastic trip to the sanctuary didn't even know it was there. It was fun to see the chimps acting very naughty, the guide was very knowledgeable about each and every chimp and answered any questions which came his way.
I adopted Josi for the year and will renew next year for sure. My only criticism is the lack of T-shirts and other souvenir items ,especially when you adopt a chimp and receive items depending which package you buy.

We had a great time with the Chimps and the guide. It was so much fun but also educational. The restaurant can do with a better menu, but the service was great. Will defnitely come again and adopt a chimp!

Since I was on a 10am tour with 35 French people and our guide Jason has to pause to allow the translator to do his thing, the tour lasted beyond the usual hour, giving me more time to observe the chimps. Obviously Nina and her baby are off limits, and the top enclosure, where the chimps have the least human contact, is also not included in the tour. But we had plenty of time to see the lower and middle enclosures. I got to finally see several chimps that I recognized from the show that used to be on Animal Planet, including the elderly Joao (60-something years old) and Cozy.
