Guided Walking Tour Details:

Tour groups will be limited to accommodate for social distancing and to ensure that both chimps and humans can enjoy the tour.

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 60-90 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.

Project Chimps Makes Safety Promise -

Project Chimps has said “I’m In,” and committed to the State of Georgia Safety Promise, a unique public-private partnership effort encouraging safety in this time of COVID-19. Project Chimps joins more than 700 state agencies, officials, companies, and organizations pledging to take critical steps to keep the state safe and open for business.

Due to current circumstances we will not have a food truck this year. We will have snacks and bottled water available for purchase.

Tour groups will be limited to accommodate for social distancing. 

Guests are highly recommended to please wear a mask!
