Signed waivers need to be returned upon arrival otherwise you will not be permitted to tour.
The sanctuary was not designded to accomodate the public, therefore parking is limited at Save the Chimps. Please arrive no sooner than 30 minutes before your scheduled tour time. Once the tour is completed, we ask that you exit the sanctuary as parking and space is limited. Thank you for understanding.
The distance of the tour is approximately 1.25 miles on a sandy, unpaved road, with some portions on grass and uneven ground. Each tour is expected to take 60 minutes.
Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen, and carry drinking water. Hats, sunglasses, umbrellas or rain jackets, and binoculars are recommended.
