We lived the sanctuary! The animals look healthy. I would have liked to see more straw etc for them to make a their bed at night. We had a guide Joe he was vey informative and really knew the individual animals. I will look into volunteering here in the future. Some very sad stories behind these magnificent animals

This was a very interesting tour, with a variety of apes, and some other things like snakes and lots of weaver birds. There are two areas of chimps, and one is a cross a river/stream that runs through the center.

This Wildlife sanctuary is a must see in Limbe and the south west region. The gorillas and chimpanzees are in a very natural habitat and they have formed new families within the group, after being revived from the many methods of captivity they faced previously. The cafe at the end has great juice, smoothies and pizza - western prices and... More

This centre has only rescued/dontated monkeys that came from generally terrible conditions. The conditions there are much better than most Zoos in the region, and the monkeys certainly aren't miserable. Even where the monkeys could probably have escaped they preferred to stay (for the free food I'm sure). Be sure to go to Arne's, the restaurant in the center.

Well worth a couple of hours learning about the centre's rescue work and meeting the inmates. The cafe was excellent value, with great food
