About Ngamba Island
Located on Lake Victoria, Ngamba Island consists of approximately 100 acres, 98 of which are forested.
Ngamba Island is a project of the Chimpanzees Sanctuary and Wildlife Conservation Trust (CSWCT), established in 1997 and provides a home for over 50 orphaned chimpanzees to live out their lives, since a return to their natural habitat is not possible, while educating visitors and local communities about their remarkable species and the importance of conserving their fragile forest habitat.
