Ol Pejeta Chimpanzee Sanctuary Kenya

Chimpanzees that had lost hope fund comfort here. After being subjected to almost slaughter as bush meat or ready to be traded on illegally, there saviors came in for their rescue.

Rendered homeless but found refuge here and now called it home. Ol Pejeta Chimpanzee Sanctuary is just like Ngamba Chimpanzee sanctuary in Uganda.

They apparently providing home to the homeless, sick and lost hope chimpanzees. The Ol Pejeta and Sweet-waters chimpanzee sanctuary are together the same.

The aim of Ol Pejeta Chimpanzee Sanctuary is to provide lifelong refuge to orphaned and abused chimpanzees from West and Central Africa.

Over the last decade, Sweetwaters Chimpanzee Sanctuary has been compelled to keep accepting chimpanzees rescued from traumatic situations.

Apparently, the total number of chimpanzees in the Sanctuary is 37.  The chimpanzees now roam freely in the land of these Sanctuary. The unlimited experiences offered here is when you come in close encounter with these primates giving them the most prominent and everlasting memories expeditions.

Your visit to Ol Pejeta Chimpanzee Sanctuary gives support to the sanctuary because the amount you pay is used to pay the staff, buy food for and do other activities within the sanctuary. Here at Sweetwaters, they get a chance to start over.

Ol Pejeta chimpanzee sanctuary apparently is home to over 30 chimpanzees that were rescued for illegal traders, bush meat hunters that had threatened these primates. The Ol Pejeta ranch officials introduced chimpanzees to the native magical Kenya working hand in hand with the Jane Goodall institute.

Where to see Chimpanzees in Africa.

The chimpanzees here are all got from the West African pet traders and bush meat hunters.  Ol Pejeta chimpanzee sanctuary is so big that it also has space for the big 5 (five) members that include the Lion, Leopard, Elephants, Buffaloes and rhinoceros.

So, after an encounter with the chimpanzees here as they come to have food, you can go for a game drive and view the Big 5 and other wildlife like the giraffes and several others. The chimpanzees here receive a 24-hour veterinary support and this helps in stimulating quarantine enclosure.

Chimpanzees arriving at the Sanctuary are carefully nursed back to health since they bring them when not medially okay and thus need utmost care and that is what exactly I done to them at Ol Pejeta Chimpanzee Sanctuary.

After the care and the health subjections, the ones ready are introduced into one of the two large groups at the Sanctuary, who live in vast natural enclosures separated by the Ewaso Nyiro River.

The chimps have set feeding times, and return to their indoor enclosures at night – but other than that they spend their days exploring, climbing, socializing, and learning to be chimpanzees all over again.

Just like Ngamba Island Chimpanzee sanctuary, Sweetwaters is also a chartered member of the Pan African sanctuary service (PASA), an alliance of 18 sanctuaries in 12 African countries; currently caring for over 800 orphaned and/or confiscated chimpanzees.

PASA’s role is to help conserve chimpanzees and other primates and their habitats through public education and lobbying for political goodwill. You can also join the efforts to conserve and sustain the chimpanzees from extinction in the hands of the pet traders and other horrific activities of humans.
