    Stop At: Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary, Plot 1 Bank Close, Entebbe Uganda

    Once you arrive at the island, you won’t fail to notice Monitor Lizards walking on the lake shores, as well as other wildlife including the various resident bird species such as the Egyptian Goose, Singing Black-headed Weavers, Yellow-beaked Duck, the Spur-winged Lapwings, Kingfishers, African Open Billed Storks and Fish Eagles. You will meet the guides at this sanctuary who will be waiting for you at the Visitor’s Center. You will be led by the care-givers to the raised platform where you will have a chance to clearly observe and feed these playful apes. Listening to the sound and observing how the chimpanzees call out for food is quite amazing an experience! You will observe the chimps feed, play, care for each other and rest. They will explain to you the different foods given to the chimps. They will also tell you how they are able to store those foods safe and healthy. Some of the food that they are fed include: cassava, pineapples, cabbage, oranges, carrots, tomatoes, jack fruit, apples, passion fruits and water melons among others. In the evening, you will begin the journey back to the mainland. You will have a stopover at the Uganda-Equator to observe your boat being thrust by forces from both the North Pole and South Pole, making it almost stationary in one place. If you are keen enough, you will notice that the boat engine will use more energy in order to sail past the Equator line crossing. For those of you who would like to enjoy a swim in these waters, you will have a chance to do so here before continuing to the mainland. If interested in swimming, this is the right point and you will be allowed a couple of minutes to enjoy the waters before proceeding with the journey.
