There is also a new Visitor's
Information Centre at Morani's Boma, which is a must for all visiting clients
staying both at Sweetwaters Tented Camp and Ol Pejeta Ranch House.
A 200-acre Chimpanzee sanctuary has been set up at Sweetwaters Game Reserve, a 15-minute drive from Sweetwaters Tented Camp.
A visit to this Sanctuary and the 30-minute boat ride (subject to fine weather) on the river among the chimps is a must...
The aim of the project, initiated by Kenya Wildlife Services and the Jane Goodall Institute, was to set up a colony where chimps could be introduced, rehabilitated and taught to fend for themselves in an area similar to their natural living conditions. Priority is given to orphaned and abused chimps.
The Sanctuary currently has 27 chimps, including two babies born in the Sanctuary.
