Sanctuary Tour

Daily guided tours take place at 10:30AM and 4:00PM only, all year round.

As we cannot accommodate late arrivals, our suggested time of arrival is 15 minutes prior to each tour.

There are no opportunities to visit the sanctuary outside of scheduled tour times.

Tours start promptly and last approximately 90 minutes. Allow about 40 minutes to get to us from the western side of Freetown. Vehicles with 4-wheel drive are required to drive into the sanctuary. Otherwise, you can park or be dropped by taxi to the base of our hill, with about 100m uphill walk to the entrance of the sanctuary.

All proceeds go directly to the chimpanzees and conservation programs.

Sierra Leonian Nationals (with ID card only)

Adults: Le 30,000
Children: Le 10,000

Others

Adults: $15 USD/Le 110,000
Children: $5 USD/Le 40,000

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.

We have a gift shop at the sanctuary where cold drinks, snacks, and a wide variety of local arts & crafts are available for purchase.
