Seems like the housing area is off limits to visitors and only about 40 out of the 200 + chimps were allowed out for viewing. Visit is pretty well confined to the moat frontage. The staff was friendly enough but it made me wonder what...More

We went to the Chimp Chat and Chew and found it very informative. Staff was great and you could tell that they really care about each of the Chimps. Highly recommend this.

We did a Chat & Chew, and it was wonderful. The food was unexpectedly good (Moe's), and the chat part was both informative and entertaining. We got to see some of the chimps from the roof top, which was much closer than it sounds. The...More

First off it is not a zoo. You are not going to get face to face with chimps. You are going to watch them from across a moat. It is a sanctuary dedicated to allowing former research chimps, abused chimps and others a chance to...More
