Meet the Chimps at Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage
The Copperbelt's best-known wildlife attraction revolves around an animal that is not indigenous to Zambia. Chimfunshi (60km from Chingola), is a world-renowned sanctuary for chimpanzees, which live in troops in special enclosures in the bush. Dave and Sheila Siddle founded the orphanage in the 1983 when they were presented with a chimpanzee that had outgrown the Copperbelt family who had kept it as a pet. Thereafter, as their reputation grew, they received chimpanzees from all over the world.
