Ngamba Island Tented Camp

This are four spacious East African 'meru' style tents, each on a wooden deck, offering uninterrupted views 0f lake Victoria and the main land beyond. The tents have en suite hot water showers, toilet & basin, solar lighting and comfortable furnishings, including twin beds with duvets. In line with both our company policy and CSWCT (the chimpanzee sanctuary and wildlife conservation trust), this camp is eco-friendly. By prior arrangement for larger groups, we can organise additional tented accommodation on the island.

The dining area is under thatch with roll-down canvas walls and netting-meals may also be served out on the 'sun deck' overlooking the lake. There is a small curio shop on the island, as well as a visitor information center-the proceeds go toward the upkeep and welfare of the chimpanzees on the island, local community projects, as well as education projects in rural areas of Uganda where poaching is still a threat to the primates especially chimpanzees.

When on the island, apart from viewing the chimpanzees, activities include the option of visiting neighbouring fishing community, bird-watching, or possibly taking a kayak around the island. Or simply relax and enjoy watching the chimps at play!
