Guests are encouraged to arrive 30 minutes before the start time of your tour window. You may be in a group with other guests. Please try to keep 6 feet in between your group and other groups. Will We See Chimps on the Tour? Chimpanzee sightings are very likely but are not guaranteed as the chimps have the option to be visible or to hide in the forested outdoor habitat. How Hard is the Walk around the Sanctuary? Please Read! -Expect a 45-60 minute, moderate hike on gravel roads with some steep inclines. The hike can be challenging for young children, less active adults, and those with limited mobility. If you have guests in your group who may not be able to complete a moderate hike, PLEASE request mobility assistance when purchasing tickets. We regret that we may not be able to accommodate day-of-event requests for mobility assistance.
