  • I did a scheduled tour and really enjoyed it! Our guide was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. The sanctuary is well kept and very cute. The best part is it’s not far from Freetown, which is unusual. It would be fun to stay at one of their ecolodges overnight!
  • Unfortunately I was not able to see the chimpanzee because the zoo staff work on schedule and I was very short in time. The staff is very professional and friendly. And the landscape est very beautiful. I recommend.
