How to Enjoy The Jane Goodall Institute

Established in 2006 by the Jane Goodall Institute, Chimp Eden near Hazyview, White River and Nelspruit is the first and only chimpanzee sanctuary of its kind in South Africa. Our mission is the rescue and care of chimpanzees that have been orphaned, traded, abused or survived the bush meat trade.

The Jane Goodall Institute was founded in 1977 to continue her groundbreaking studies on chimpanzees. The Jane Goodall Institute is dedicated to raising awareness through education and eco-tourism. Understanding the lives and the plight of rescued chimpanzees is the best way to start the change.
