The Jane Goodall Institute South Africa


Visitors have a unique opportunity to see chimpanzees in semi-wild enclosures. The chimps show normal social interaction and behavioral patterns despite their traumatic backgrounds as pets, entertainment animals and victims of the bushmeat trade. The enclosures also have viewpoints overlooking the forest and ‘foraging areas’ These areas provide the chimps with endless hours of fun, safe from human intervention and positively reinforce their natural behavior. Come and join us for a tour to meet humans closest relative, see their unique personalities and learn how we can all work together to save these animals from extinction!

Guided tours take place three times a day, every day of the year (weather permitting), when the chimp tour guide talks about chimpanzees, the sanctuary, and introduces the individual chimps and their stories - from the safety of the viewing points. The tour takes approximately one hour. Light meals and refreshment are available from the restaurant before or after the tour.
