Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary

Tours are timed to coincide with feeding to give you the best opportunity to observe the chimpanzees. Tours take place on foot, following forest footpaths. Please wear comfortable clothing/footwear and remember to bring your rain gear in the rainy season. You are welcome to bring your camera as there are good opportunities to take the perfect picture.
