Šta ćete raditi

Take a guided hike on sanctuary property on our 2.5 mile long yellow trail. The hike will take around 90 minutes and has an elevation gain of 500 feet.

Then get a behind the scenes look at chimpanzees living in sanctuary in the Blue Ridge Mountains!

This is a unique opportunity to see some of the chimpanzees and learn about their unique life in sanctuary. Because we aren't a zoo, you'll see the chimps in a relaxed, peaceful setting, unlike anything you've experienced before. The chimps have access to a 6-acre forest and, while chimp sightings are never guaranteed, they usually like to see who has come to visit!

The sanctuary tour lasts about one hour. You'll also spend time with our sanctuary team and learn more about the amazing lives of chimpanzees! Tours are limited to 10 guests.

Please dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes. There is no contact between humans and chimps, but you will have the opportunity to see them up close and personal for a once in a lifetime experience.
Other things to note:
You will not have direct contact with the chimpanzees. Experiences are held rain or shine, we do not reschedule unless there is a weather advisory that impacts travel. Chimps have the option to retreat to their villas out of sight at any time.

I'm Kathryn, the Volunteer Coordinator at Project Chimps, and I love introducing new guests to our sanctuary for chimpanzees retired from medical research. At Project Chimps, a volunteer and I will guide you to see former research chimps up close in their 6-acre forested outdoor habitat. I started as a volunteer myself before the first chimpanzee arrived at this location and have been here ever since, working part time and now full time. We can't take care of these precious souls without folks like you coming to learn about them, meet them, and help us care for them. We look forward to meeting you!

O organizaciji Project Chimps



Project Chimps is the newest chimpanzee sanctuary in the United States and was founded to provide lifelong exemplary care to nearly 200 former research chimpanzees at its sanctuary of over 230 acres of forested land in the Blue Ridge Mountains of north Georgia. Project Chimps is entirely privately funded and supported by other non-profit organizations and caring individuals like you.

Gde ćete biti

Project Chimps is located in Morganton, Georgia. The 236 acre property is wooded and mountainous. Perfect for a beautiful hike. At the summit of the trail, you can sometimes see the chimps wandering through their 6-acre habitat.

This was a great experience for both our kids and ourselves. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and very friendly. She answered the many questions our two children presented throughout the entire hike. We are thankful we found this place and look forward to coming back again.

Incredible experience! Kathryn arranged our visit and greeted us with Project Chimp volunteer Traci. we went on a fantastic hike with Traci who gave us a full briefing on the history of this incredible community of chimpanzees. The hike through the expansive property of the sanctuary was great exercise, but Traci was careful to make sure we were able to keep up and kept a comfortable pace. After the hike, we toured the facility and learned all about the chimps and the complex operations that keep them safe and healthy. We met many staff and volunteers, all of whom had an obvious enthusiasm and love for their work. we also were lucky to meet -- through glass - several of the chimpanzee residents. It was clear that the chimps have developed close relationships with staff and each other. Overall, I cannot recommend this experience enough. our guide, Traci, and the other staff we met were incredibly generous with their time and willing to explain everything in as much detail as we wanted.

Once in a lifetime experience - trails are great, scenery is incredible and the staff are super friendly. We were fortunate to see the chimps being let out into the sanctuary in the morning - what a sight!
