This was the last part of our trip and we couldn´t have hoped for a better end of the holiday. Ngamba island is just a little piece of heaven in lake victoria.
After arrival and check in we loved walking around and taking photo´s of the hundreds of waever birds, storks, monitor lizards etc.

The tents are just excelent and the staff of the tents (wild frontiers) as well the staff of the chimpansee sanctuary is great. The food is also very good and tasty. The tents are also very good maintained.

We loved the chimp walk in the forest where we took seven chimps out and played with them. A absolute higlite of our trip. Severel chimps jumped on our back and let us walk them into the forest. If you visit Ngamba island it is better to stay overnight. You can enjoy the feeding more then once and the experience of close contact with the chimps is a "must" do experience. If you will visit the Ngamba island as a day visitor you will just arrive by boat, look for the feeding and return back to mainland again and you will not have the best experience with chimps ever. Just do it.

Although the hotel is another "business" than the chimpanzee sanctuary, it is intimately linked, and that makes it so special.
We stayed two full days with the caretaker programme activities, forest walk and feeding of over 30 chimpansees, each with its particular habits and reactions.
The tens were spacious and warm shower water-to-order was promt and plentyful.
Behind the tents a compost toilet, but for midnight needs is a chemical toilet inside the tent. Double screens were effective against the many minifies, but both swallows and bats around the lodges tried to keep these flies down. PV light was good.
From our tent balcony we had at our feet a small lake section with weaverbirds in acacia trees, several water birds, reeds, fish and monitor lizards.
The restaurant service and food was excellent (early morning tea) en we enjoyed the place with only two other guests.
