Tacugama Chimpanzee Sanctuary
The work of the Sierra Leone Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Programme at Tacugama is definitely worth seeing. They started with a single chimpanzee and are now rehabilitating almost one hundred.
There are tour tours at 10:30am and 4:00pm, 7 days a week and this can be easily combined with one of our city tours. The tours are timed to coincide with the feeding of the chimps which gives you the maximum opportunity to see the chimps in action. Tacugama is in Barthurst (20mins from downtown Freetown). Should you wish to stay longer, their eco-lodges are one of the most romantic places to spend the night in Sierra Leone.
