Welcome to Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage
On a farm deep in the African bush, about 65km northwest of Chingola, is this impressive chimpanzee sanctuary that's undoubtedly the standout highlight in the Copperbelt region. Home to around 120 adult and young chimps, most have been rescued from poachers and traders in the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo or other parts of Africa. It's one of the largest sanctuaries of its kind in the world. This is not a natural wildlife experience, but it’s still a unique and fascinating opportunity to observe the chimps as they feed, play and socialise.
