Chimp Eden and Sudwala Caves
- About 8 hours
A day tour which combines chimps and caving. Meet the chimps on your visit to the Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Eden. The Sanctuary is home to chimps that have been misplaced from their natural habitats in Africa. The tour then continue to the Sudwala Caves with its rich history.
Depart from your hotel at around 08h00 and drive to the Jane Goodall Institute Chimpanzee Eden situated about 15kms outside Nelspruit. We arrive in time to join the tour which includes the feeding of the chimpanzees at 10h00. This is a unique opportunity to view chimpanzees in semi-wild surroundings. Visitors will be captivated by these primates who share 97% of mans’ DNA.
With every visitor we take to the Sanctuary, we contribute to the rescue of another chimpanzee. The goal of the institute is to rescue chimpanzees that have survived the bushmeat trade; been orphaned and are traded in the illegal pet trade to zoos and circuses. These chimps are the lucky ones that have been rescued.
After the tour we stop for lunch (own account) before travelling to the Sudwala Caves 24km outside Nelspruit. The Sudwala Caves tour is a one hour tour to the famous Sudwala Caves, which has a very rich and interesting history. The principle guardian of the caves’ entrance was Sudwala, Somquba’s chief inDuna (councillor / captain), whose name is thus commemorated to this day, and whose spirit is legendarily said to linger in the caves. Today nobody knows how many times Somquba took refuge inside the caves, but many bloody battles were fought at the site.
