As a sanctuary, Chimp Haven is primarily focused on providing an enriching life at sanctuary for the chimps; therefore we are not open to the public year-round. However, throughout the year, Chimp Haven holds special events and opportunities for visitors to experience the sanctuary.

Chimp Haven strives to provide a memorable and educational experience for every visitor. Given that most Chimp Haven events take place outdoors in the sanctuary’s rural setting, please be aware that walkways at the event are gravel and often uneven, and may be difficult to navigate for those with limited mobility. Our parking lot and walkways may also be muddy in the event of rain. Guests should expect to walk on foot to view chimpanzee habitats and access event amenities. Hayrides are not wheelchair accessible. Other Chimp Haven events may have additional accessibility options. Chimp Haven is committed to improving accessibility for guests and visitors; if you have questions about event accessibility or would like to discuss accessibility options, please reach out to us at


Chimp Haven events typically occur rain or shine. No refunds are available, and all unused tickets are considered a donation to Chimp Haven. If an event must be canceled by Chimp Haven, ticket holders may receive a refund or they may use their ticket to attend a rescheduled event (if available).
